A little Lesson
The first rule of photography is compose a good shot, but there’s usually a lot involved and since a lot of this happens automatically for me now, it’s only in retrospect that I can break at least some of this down:
- Know what you’re going to do before you do it. … I took my 50mm for this situation given the working distance, low light and my desire to focus manually. My Canon was set to AV mode, ISO 1600 and f2 in advance.
- Make your kids at ease. Being a father has built up my repertoire of jokes, funny noises and quirky faces.
- Find the light. I moved between the window and the kids while being careful not to cast a shadow. The upside is soft lighting and specular highlights in the eyes.
- Compose the shot well. I wanted both kids in the shot, but wanted Zoe to have her due (she’s often overshadowed by her bigger brother if you can imagine that). So the focus point went on her and Aidan was slightly cropped out and out of focus. Composition follows the rules of thirds and is well balanced (two similarly sized subjects lending equal weight to each side of the photograph)
- If I like it, it’s mine.
- If I can take it from you, it’s mine.
- If it’s mine, it must never appears to be yours in anyway
