Snips Tips: How to Take Better Photographs | Hagerstown child photographer

I am currently writing an article for the tri-state Child Guide Magazine on how take better pictures of your children (to be published in an upcoming edition).  I have been honored to have my portrait art featured on the cover of this magazine a few times over the past few months and it has been so much fun working with the families in the Hagerstown, Winchester, VA and  Chambersburg areas!  As I have been writing this article, I have been also thinking about starting a new area on my blog – Snips Tips – where I will highlight some simple yet important actions you can take to improve your family images.  Photographing your family events are important and if a professional photographer isn’t in the mix, I want you to be able take and have great pictures!  I will be offering one tip a week so check back often to see what has been added! (Each post will be under the Snips Tips category.) 

So here we go – tip #1

When photographing children, get down on their level and shoot at the child’s eye level.  And, when framing them, be sure not to cut off any limbs in the image.
