Tips for Photographing Kids with Special Needs
Photographing Kids with Special Needs
TIP 1: Try to capture the spirit of the child. Rather than striving to achieve the ideal pose and smile, accompanied by perfect studio lighting, relax and follow the child’s movements. Capture an image when the child shows some emotion or interest in an object.
TIP 2: Catch them doing something they enjoy! They can be playing with a toy, sitting coloring, or hugging a stuffed animal.
TIP 3: Avoid flash: use a nice light source, like a window.
TIP 4: Have a sibling involved. Perhaps they can be holding, hugging from back to front, interacting, or just playing.
