The outdoor shoot, he forces us to deal with the moods of Mother Nature. It also obliges us to make precedence recognition, to become familiar with the environment and to choose the appropriate places for shooting. To benefit from the best light conditions, we organize our session during the golden hours, that is to say those that follow the sunrise or those before his bedtime. For a photo shoot with manikin, we turn a corner of the house into a photo studio. As a background, use a white wall or a white sheet tight. Ideally, at least one reflector and an external flash of good quality are available. The reflector is used to unravel the shadows that could harden the lines of our model.

We do not forget to balance the whites and get closer to about two meters from our model. And if the background is gray, we do not hesitate to illuminate it to bring out our subject. The difference between a good fashion photo and a bad one is largely due to the attitude of the model, which must remain comfortable and authentic. Leading a session can not be improvised. We must ensure that the model understands our expectations, particularly as to the poses to be taken. And, since a photo is worth a thousand words, it is inspiring by presenting examples found on the Internet or in magazines. Finally, as everything goes through the eyes, we do not forget to focus on his eyes.

It is not mandatory to be equipped like a pro to make some beautiful pictures of birds; however, a minimum is required: Given the size of the models and the difficulty of getting too close to them, the bird photo requires a fairly powerful zoom, at least 200 mm. In addition to getting closer to your subject, a telephoto lens will allow you to play on the depth of field. You will focus on the bird, which will blur the often uninteresting background while putting your subject in value. A tripod will give you all the stability needed to make beautiful photos: the problem is that it involves staying still, on the lookout for a bird, which can be frustrating. By cons, do not hesitate to install the tripod in a place where birds like to come, in your garden for example. Otherwise, grasp your device with both hands, one on the case, the other on the lens, and stick your elbows to your body to gain stability when triggering.

Obviously, the key to photograph a bird in flight is speed. If it is not fast enough, the bird may be out of focus and you will not be able to clearly distinguish the details that make all its beauty, from its look to the reflections of its plumage. Put yourself in speed-priority mode (TV or S) so you do not have to worry about aperture or ISO sensitivity and adjust your speed. Choose a speed of at least 1 / 500th to limit the blur caused by your tremors and freeze the movements of the bird. With your device in hand, follow the bird in your objective and fire while continuing to follow the bird a few moments later. Abuse burst mode. You will of course have some “garbage” in your photos and this will require some sorting, but a pearl is surely in your selection. Set the focus to automatic. Choose the small center square that appears in your viewfinder or on your screen to focus rather than the peripheral squares. Finally, do not forget to focus on the eyes of the bird.

Animal photography is about patience and preparation. Patience, you will need to approach the birds without frightening them. You will have to progress slowly, sometimes stop, then react very quickly to photograph the bird. We must therefore be prepared not to miss this brief moment of magic. Before you go to chase the good image, make sure the status of your batteries and your memory card, and make the necessary settings to just trigger when the time comes. To maximize your chances of making beautiful pictures of birds, you have every interest in getting to know them better to understand their habits, the hours to photograph them, their way of flying, etc. Do not hesitate to consult some ornithological works before leaving in photo-exit. Play on the imaginary: a close-up of a part of the plumage, a photo of a footprint in the mud, the reflection of waders in the water … Unleash your creativity! Play on contrasts, for example between the flamboyant colors of a cardinal and the green of a bush.

Start by choosing a story that he likes or invent one. Make it dream by staging characters or situations that match his age and personality. A treasure hunt in the house, a garden trip, an incredible adventure or a more classic tale – let your imagination go! Put it all in writing by dividing the story into small, easy-to-photograph pictures. To illustrate your personal story, involve family members, your child, or favorite toys. Shoot them in situations that will bring your story to life. Set the scene in a room in the house, the yard or a familiar place of the child: he will love to discover them in another light. For accessories, do not hesitate to use Halloween costumes, naughty Christmas elves and everyday objects. Once your photo shoot is over, save your image files to a special folder on your computer. It is now time to put everything in place. Depending on the age of your child, choose the appropriate size and coverage: large or small, rigid or flexible, there are many choices.
