How To Take Better Photos Of Your Kids | 20 Day Photography Bootcamp For Moms (or Dads) | Day 7
What is it?
Welcome to RKP’s ’20 Day Photography Bootcamp for Moms’! What this is, is a 20 day blog series dedicated to teaching and challenging parents to take better photos of their kids! You will learn some basic lighting skills, natural posing for various ages, some ideas for lifestyle photos, as well as some other basic photography tips that will help bring your pictures up a notch! The best part? ANYONE can participate! Even if all you have is a cellphone! (Some lighting lessons will be tricky with a cell phone since you can’t adjust settings.) Each day I will share a tip or lesson with a photo challenge. You can then share your results in the Facebook group ‘RKPs 20 Day Photography Bootcamp for Moms (or Dads)’, on instagram with the hashtag #rkpbootcamp, or keep them to yourselfs! You can follow along day by day or take it at your own pace. You can skip days as well. There’s no rules, it’s your life. Haha.
*Note: I won’t be covering editing but theres lots of free options out there if you want to play around with that on your own. 🙂 If you really want to go all out, I’m a big fan of Lightroom!
If you DO have a DSLR (aka “fancy”) camera, I highly recommend checking out my mini guide, Control Your Camera!

Day 7 | Angles | Shooting From Behind
We almost always focus on our kiddos faces, which is important. But we love every itty bitty bit of who our children are. So let’s focus on something else today. Squishy baby bums? Yes please!! I think ‘shooting from behind’ is pretty straight forward so I won’t drag it out. Let’s get to shooting!
* Give them something to do, then sneak some shots from behind them.
* Chase them and photograph them running away. (Keeping these in focus will be tricky but give it a try!)
Share a photo, taken from behind, that shows off who your child is and/or what they like.
Here’s Charlie playing with blocks in the office. He’s naked because he just ate and therefore got super messy! :p
