Click On Each Example Image To See Its EXIF data
These examples of child photography are here to help you get the best out of your camera and enhance your child photography skills! Some have been enhanced or worked upon in Photoshop, a must for serious photographers who work in digital, or need make adjustments to their work.
Some photographs will appear sub-standard, this is necessary in order for the page to load quickly. The purpose is to show lighting, composition and techniques. Most of these images were taken with the Canon EOS 10D (Circa 2003), Canon’s successor to the “now ancient” EOS D30. I could add images taken with more modern DSLR’s such as the Panasonic GH5 or Canon EOS 5D Mark IV but at web resolution, the difference is barely noticeable. I have left these online to show the exif data as that is something that will rarely change regardless of the camera being used.
The thing to remember is that it is not the camera that is mostly important here (although its latest features may help your photography in some respects) it is the lenses that add quality to your shots. Lighting also plays a good part so learn how to control it and add your own lighting when necessary.

Once you have checked all the images out along with what settings were used, go out yourself and test these settings. Add your own “mark” to your shots by manipulating the light to your advantage and particular style.
When you browse images online to get inspiration for your next shoot, look at various things within that image to try and establish how it was taken. Look at the light and shadows. Were any additional lights used and if so, from what angle? Is the background blurred and if so, was this from a wide aperture or from using a long telephoto lens or even a slow shutter speed whilst panning on the subject?
