tip 6: location, location, location

Written by Bex Lipp of Verdict Photos

Pay attention to the background of your photos.  Simple backgrounds like a park or beach are great, where kids can have fun and play but there isn’t anything too distracting behind them.  You want your darling to be the star of the photo not something random in the background that draws your attention away from them.  That isn’t to say that you cannot have anything in the background.  Rules in photography are meant to be broken.  Sometimes something unusual can be quite cool in a photo but you need to remember to not let the child get lost in the photo.
A great idea is to also add in someone else.  Again, don’t make the ‘guest’ the main attraction (unless you want to).  Imagine Nana telling a fabulous story and you get a photo of the child’s face looking up, listening to her.  You don’t even need to have Nana’s face in the photo – no offense meant to Nana (get other ones of Nana and her face too!).  But do you get the idea about location and thinking about what you are seeing when you look through the viewfinder?  How things are placed and where you are, the location, make a huge difference to the finish product.  Even at home, pick a space that isn’t too crowded, that has a plain wall.  
Remember to look through the viewfinder and take it all in, if you like it, go for it!
