How To Take Better Photos Of Your Kids | 20 Day Photography Bootcamp For Moms (or Dads) | Intro
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 yourselves! 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!
Intro Day / Outline
So today I’d like to show you what the next 20 days will look like. As I’ve mentioned above, each day will include a lesson or tip followed by a photo challenge for you to try! This bootcamp is being created with winter in mind, therefore most days will take place in the comfort of your own home. I can already hear people saying their home isn’t nice enough to take good photos in but trust me, with a little creativity and some nice light, it will be just fine. I’m also a big fan of a lifestyle approach which means really natural looking images that reflect real life! So these challenges will reflect that. My favourite photos of my little boy are the ones where he’s doing regular everyday things, because it brings me back to those real life memories! And that’s what photography is all about to me! So with that in mind, here is the outline for the next 20 days! 😀
