I found a great article over at the Digital Photography School website about photographing childrens birthday parties. My reason for looking for advice was that I was due to be the ‘official’ photographer at a friends son’s birthday recently and as such wanted to get some tips on how best to approach the day.
Portrait photography is what I love doing. A portrait photography commission, whether in a studio or on location, allows both the commissioner or the portrait and me as the artist to explore different facets of your personality and sometimes of your identity.
It does not matter whether you are completely outgoing, or a little apprehensive, the point is, once you are comfortable with the artist you will relax and you will be amazed at the end results.
