Photographing children…a pleasure or a chore? That definitely depends on the children involved! I know every new parent thinks their newborn baby is an angel but ask them a few sleepless nights later and I’m guessing their response may have changed a little. Children can be adorable, smile sweetly and provide fantastic candid shots of pure emotions. They can also attack you, whilst trying to smother your camera in cake and transition through mood changes faster than a PMT woman lacking chocolate. So, when faced with littleluns to photograph, what should you do?
Don’t worry, my first dabble in the world of blogging isn’t as a stressed out employee, unsubtly confessing to committing murder in the workplace. My weapon of choice is loaded with a memory card, not even an ‘extreme’ super fast one – hardly the adrenaline pumping stuff of the next James Bond blockbuster. Nevertheless, it seems merely holding a camera with intent in the workplace can strike fear into almost everyone!
