Just Photos October 3, 2005

Posted by Zara's Mama in misc, Zara.

A colleague who took beautiful photographs for her sons gave me this tip on photography

Simple tips of taking good shot of children with any camera is to “GET CLOSER”. Moving closer eliminates all the distracting elements in the background and show a more intimate picture of your subject.

I took her advice and over the weekend tried to shoot some close up photos of Zara, and yes, the result is amazing.

Zara’s hand in mine.

Our feet. I like the shot Dinah took with Ashley. Here’s my version.

Zara sucking on her thumb in her cot early Sunday morning.

Zara staring at the TV, watching her favourite VCD, Wheels On the Bus

Still staring at the TV.

Here she is, playing with the toys on her walker.

just don’t get too close until you blind her with all the flashes πŸ˜›

somehow children are the only subject who could do close-ups without makeup and all those nonsense! and all the pictures will turn out to be winners!!

I won’t sacrifice Zara for ‘arts’ one. No flash while taking close up.
