With 3 kids, I find I am constantly taking pictures. Whether it be memories I will always cherish and want to remember, or random silly moments that seem all too fleeting, it seems I always have my camera in hand.
Now I don't have a fancy DSLR camera. I wish I did, and it tops my wish-list in a major, major way. I do have a mid-range Canon point and shoot, and my trusty iPhone. (Thanks, Dad and Missy!) Check out this sweet shot I got back in August when we were in Ohio putting a contract on our new home and getting all the necessary inspections done. Both of my toddlers loved swinging with my Grandma (who just happens to be the most awesome person in the world), and they both ended up falling asleep. This is a photo I will always treasure, and I actually plan on getting it professionally printed, matted and framed.
I am always looking to expand my knowledge about photography, because well...I am a major rookie. But I would love to be able to take the best photos possible in any situation. Thankfully, there are some very helpful pros out there who are willing to share their secrets!
Photographer, author and educator Erin Manning provides her Top 3 Tips for capturing better baby photos. Erin gives you advice on setting the scene and getting close to the baby for those perfect images, as well as using a SanDisk Ultra SDHC card to make sure she never misses a shot.
Do you take about a thousand pictures a day like I do? What do you do to make sure you get great pictures? Which of Erin's tips did you find to be the most helpful? I'd love to hear all about it, especially considering I could stand to learn a few things!
