#26 Child’s Play

A child sits at a piano in North London, England.

It’s been said that you should never work with animals or children.

They are messy.  They are unpredictable.

But then, they are also adorable.  How else would you get shots like this if you didn’t work with children?

The best advice I have is to let kids be themselves – the photographer then simply becomes the observer rather than director (as might be the case when working with adults).

This shot was taken during a day-in-the-life shoot with 2 children and their parents.  I bounced a flash off the white walls/ceiling to balance the daylight coming into the room.
