Photographing Your Family: And All the Kids and Friends and Animals Who Wander Through Too from National Geographic and written by John Healey helps to take the mystery out of making extraordinary pictures of kids.
Joel Sartore's photographs delight and inspire, from the first moments a newborn enters the house to Halloween parades, from visits with family and friends to fireworks on the Fourth of July. Easy-to-follow tips and instructions make the creative process simple, helping parents approach photography in a whole new way. Digital photographers will appreciate tips on editing techniques, album innovations, archiving methods, and printing. Sartore's charisma and humor make learning a pure delight.
Unlike competitive titles, this book is lavishly illustrated to show the many ways to make pictures, how Sartore captured these images specifically, and the philosophies a world-class photographer brings to his work at home-with emphasis on the contributions that relatives, friends, and pets can make to the story that is family.
Early childhood is a fleeting time that parents and grandparents go to great lengths to capture in photos. This book will appeal to a vast audience: families who want to create memorable albums, parents with new babies, and everyone who wants to give a truly unique and useful family gift.
