The author then gives tips to photographing everyday life, holidays, family portraits (including pets), tweens and teens, family vacations and travel.
I found the tips in the book to be practical and easy to understand. A few of my favorite tips are these:
- When shooting indoor holiday pictures, increase your ISO to 800 or even 1600, as it lets more light into the camera, giving you sharper, brighter photos.
- Practice framing daily moments by using a 2"x 3" frame, hold it up and think about how you could frame the world around you in that moment.
- When you see a photo you love, evaluate what you like about the photo. Consider lighting, the photographers point of view and background are just some points the author makes.
- Let go of perfection, especially when photographing kids. Not everyone will be facing the camera, not all will always be smiling. But the overall story will be told.
