Photography Demystified - For Kids!: A Kids Guide and Parents Resource for Fun and Learning Photography Together!
Photography Demystified—FOR KIDS! A Kid’s Guide and Parent’s Resource to Fun and Learning Photography Together, the fourth in the Photography Demystified series, is specifically designed for parents to read and follow with their children to create a fun-filled bond and hobby within the family. Many of the projects can be done even with the simplest of cameras, including those in smartphones. This book is also very much for pre-teen and teenagers to be able to work with on their own, when needed, AND with their parents, so everyone can enjoy their time together! This is a photography book that children of all ages and parents alike will learn from. Photography Demystified—FOR KIDS caters to younger children working with their parents in the simpler projects, but mostly to children in upper elementary school (ages 8–10), pre-teens (ages 11–12), and early teens (ages 13–14). But don’t be fooled—this book will ALSO help the adult learn photography too! I wrote this book with the idea that parents and kids could have a fun time learning together. This book is NOT about the “perfect photograph” but rather the journey of learning photography in a fun way as a family.Because this book is meant for children and their parents to explore and learn photography together, through a child’s eyes, I’ve formatted it differently than the previous books in the Photography Demystified series. In this book, you’ll find over 50 photography projects and step-by-step instructions on how to do them, as well as photographic visuals. Having taught thousands of people photography and created an international best-selling series on the subject, I have been asked countless times about how to help younger children learn photography. So I’ve written this book.Most photography books are not appropriate for children because they concentrate on technical information to such an extent that children’s “joy” and “wonder” of depicting the world through photographs get lost in all the “photo jargon” of shutter speeds and F-stops. So, that’s not what you’ll find in this book.My philosophy is that children need the freedom to be able to “see” and “share” how they see, and their wonder of it all should be acknowledged in a safe and non-critical way, first and foremost.THEN, upon that foundation, other aspects, including some of the technical aspects, can be brought in to enhance their experience and increase their knowledge. We MUST not put our filters on them! The first rule is to help them develop a love for “seeing” through photographs. This book is written for parents to experience with their children, according to HOW THEIR CHILDREN SEE THE WORLD. Because of this, many of the projects in the book can be done with the simplest of cameras. This is very purposeful.Photography Demystified—FOR KIDS! A Kid’s Guide and Parent’s Resource to Fun and Learning Photography Together has been written with the hope that the special sense of wonder children have, and parents cherish, can bring both together through the joy and learning of photography. My hope is that your children will fall in love with “seeing” through the means of photography, and you, as a parent, will see through your children’s eyes. In doing so, it will give you a bond so that together you experience wonder, joy, and creation, all in expectation that this experience will provide a precious, lifelong memory that is captured forever through the photos you take.

When photographing people, you can have a great composition, perfect light, and the right camera settings, but if your subject doesn’t look right—if the pose is off—the shot will not be a keeper. Posing is truly a crucial skill that photographers need to have in order to create great photographs. If you’re looking to improve your ability to pose your subjects—whether they’re men, women, couples, or groups—best-selling author and photographer Lindsay Adler’s The Photographer’s Guide to Posing: Techniques to Flatter Everyone is the perfect resource for you.In the first half of The Photographer’s Guide to Posing, Lindsay discusses how the camera sees, and thus how camera angle, lens choice, and perspective all affect the appearance of your subject. Lindsay then covers the five most important things that ruin a pose—such as placement of the hands, and your subject’s expression and posture. If you can look out for and avoid these five things, your skills (and your images) will quickly improve. Next, Lindsay dives into “posing essentials,” outlining her approach to start with a “base pose,” then build on that to create endless posing opportunities. She also discusses posing the face—with specific sections dedicated to the chin, jaw, eyes, and forehead—as well as posing hands.In the second half of the book, Lindsay dedicates entire chapters to posing specific subject matter: women, men, couples, curvy women, families and small groups, and large groups. In each chapter, Lindsay addresses that subject matter’s specific challenges, provides five “go-to poses” you can always use, and covers how to train the eye to determine the best pose for your subject(s). In the final chapter of the book, Lindsay brings it all together as she teaches you how to analyze a pose so that you can create endless posing opportunities and continuously improve your work
