How To Photograph Your 4 Year Old
You know my technique. I resorted to it again. Bribery. He asked if he could go to Target to look at Lego's. I said sure, but you have to let me take your picture. He gave me "silly face" and "clown face" and then finally "love face," followed by a big hug.
Ahhh, free love! I can push a cart through Target for that! Miraculously he left with only a box of animal cookies. I, on the other hand, found the 50% off Valentine's stuff shelf!
My light source was behind me in the shape of a HUGE window at our local coffee shop. Not much better than 830AM sun as it filters in. I moved so the light was almost even on his face, keeping it behind me. I spot metered off of that sweet sweet face (not the red cheeks) and shot away.
