Project Educate: Photographing Infants + ChildrenPhotographing infants and children can either be really painful and frustrating, or incredibly fun and rewarding. It depends entirely on the child. I kid, sort of. It's what you make of it and how you treat the moment. Children are fast, sometimes moody, sometimes hyper and nearly always think they know what you want them to do when you turn the camera on them. Either run, or crack that huge fake camera smile that they've been taught to do for their school photographs.Project Educate: Photographing Infants + Children3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Don't force a smile. If the child doesn't want to smile, don't make them. You'll end up with the fake smile. However having said that, you can try and be funny, but again don't push it. They're smarter than many give them credit for. If you're not getting a smile but you're getting a rude funny face, then accept it. Those sorts of shots can be awesome as well.
Learn to accept imperfections. Whether the children are strangers to you or not, you can't have it perfect all of the time. Messy hair,

"Overall Painted Look"
"My techniques is pretty much simple and the soft painted look can be achieved quite easily. What I do is:
Using a spot healing brush I remove spots, if any from the skin.
Then use a mixer brush over it using the following values:
Wet: 17%, Load: 15%, Mix: 17%, Flow: 18%, which not only smoothens the skin but also softens it.
At the end of it all, I dodge and burn wherever necessary. Alternatively, I use a white brush of low opacity somewhere between 30-35% and paint over the highlights, then apply a Gaussian blur of 15-16 pixels. and for the shadows I go over them with a much lower opaci

I think it's time for a new contest !
The theme is:
To date, we have explored less than five percent of the ocean.
95% have never been seen by a human being.
So, what is down there, in the deep ocean? What mysteries could we find?
Mermaid cities, shipwrecks full of treasures, ruins of ancient kingdoms, unknown creatures ?
Dark secrets that may never be revealed ?
Let your imagination run wild !

So, winter has almost entirely passed my little corner of the world by. Don't get me wrong, I hate being uber cold and stuck in due to bad roads....but I still feel a little cheated that we didn't have any really good snows or just freezing days. Which means I am looking on to the furture! Spring is right around the corner, warmer weather, spending time outside....and, for some, camping! I use to camp a lot when I was younger, but since moving to a much more rural area, I just don't get the chance to anymore. And I miss it. So the theme this month is to appease my nosta...I mean, it is to show me your emotes out in nature, being one with the forest....or beach...or snowy plains. Who knows where your emote might get to for its camping trip?
Theme suggested by Krissi001.
