Packed with practical techniques that both inform and inspire, this professional guidebook to photographing babies, small children, and teenagers presents new strategies to maximize client cooperation and ensure smooth sessions. The entire child-based photographic process is addressed, including proper equipment selection, physical and behavioral controls for young subjects, working with black-and-white exposures, assessing raw versus JPEG modes, and evaluating digital exposures by determining over- and underexposure metering. Chapters devoted to mastering studio lighting—from direct and diffused lighting tactics to employing the use of umbrellas and softboxes—as well as working in sunlight and twilight environments is also featured.
