Tips for Photographing Toddlers at the Library – my second adventures with toddlers post – is up on Me Ra Koh’s blog! If you loved my first post featured on her blog, Five Photo Tips for Capturing Adventures with Toddlers, you’ll love this one! Although I’m sure the librarian was thrilled by my two noisy library goers, the kids loved spend a rainy Saturday afternoon at the library. Since I know that many kids, and moms, love going to the library, I thought it was the perfect topic for a photo tips!
We arrived a little early and had to wait outside before they opened. The cold didn’t stop the kids as they burned off energy running up and down the sidewalk. I figured my adventure didn’t start once we were in the library, this is a moment to capture and remember for years to come. In order to make the most of my image I couldn’t just shoot down on them.
Get Down to Their Level
On a big sidewalk, my kids can get lost. By getting down to their level and letting them run towards me I’m better able to capture the sheer joy on my son’s face. To add interest to the photo, I used the sidewalk as a leading line right to them!
Camera Settings: ISO 250, Aperture f/2.0, Shutter Speed 1/400
