Take the time to improve your child photography skills by reading Photographing Children Photo Workshop, 2nd ed. by author Ginny Felch from Wiley. This non-intimidating book contains a variety of technical and non-technical information that will appeal to aspiring and advanced photographers alike. The author's intent is to not only convey techniques, but to inspire and make the process fun for both the child being photographed and the photographer as well. There are chapters dealing with advice, art, inspiration, exposure, camera program modes, the importance of light, reflections, shadows and more.

Photographers will appreciate the chapter on natural light, and making the most of window light, and shooting in the fog and sunlight. Chapter 4 goes over using flash, studio lighting, color temperature, and light modifiers. Armed with this knowledge, photographers will gain confidence in their ability to tackle a wide variety of shooting situations. Rounding out a photographer's skill set are chapters on composition, style, emotion, and even the psychology of photographing children. As readers progress, their needs for upgrading equipment and peripherals are addressed, too. The book concludes with chapters on post-production, workflow, retouching, presentation and software.
