Photo Snack – Props for Child Portraits

By NYIP Staff on January 21st, 2015

Welcome to another NYIP Photo Snack! In this week’s video, we learn that props can go a long way toward making photos of children more exciting and dynamic.

When photographing children, whether they are your own or you’re taking professional portraits of children, including props for the children to hold on to or interact with is a good idea. When children interact with things they are interested in, the photos become more compelling.

Children will be more engaged and the final photographs will have more dimension than they otherwise would have had.

Want to learn photography? The New York Institute of Photography offers nine great online photography courses that can help you improve your skills and make money with your photos.
