Summer fun
Jun 3, 2012

Just a novice posting a couple of photos of my darling 3 year old enjoying the summer season. Any C&C welcome.

I like the two last ones best, because in those, you are on level with your son.

Very few people realise how important eye level is for our perception of the model.

Seen from a photographic POV these are just happy snaps, but since they are technically ok and conveying a sense of relaxed summer days, they are bound to be happy memories for you and your son.

I can't give you any better advice than this guy can, his family pictures are awsome:

My only comment would be try getting lower as you are always shooting from above the child.

If you look at a'lot of great child photographers you will see in that a'lot of the time their pictures are shot @ the eye level or lower of the child.

Try it and see if you like the results

Maybe try to be more selective in the shots you show. In one set of shots, even though it is hard as a father cause all have value to you, I, as a viewer, usually prefer to not have to see the whole set, but just the one you think is the best, especially if the composition is exactly the same among shots.

Nice snapshots for memories. They are not "editorial" but it might not be your goal.
