Word and Image


Kids are people, small adults, right? Not! Ha! This was a quintessential argument from pediatricians why they were important. Anyway, I shoot whatever is at hand. And kids and small pets are all fair game. I think I have better luck with pets. There is a key. You shoot and shoot. Volume will not make up for the lack of good technique. But you increase the odds of getting a good image. Why? Boredom. Kids forget you are still pressing the shutter and go back to their routine. It works sometimes. It’s worked three times here. I won’t say that I got exactly what I wanted. But it was close enough to pass. A long time ago when I wasn’t very good, my shot selection would include the whole child – head to toe. No longer, and, I think the results are better for us all.
