photographing kids


Having a small camera that can be hidden from sight is a great way to take candid photos of children playing.

So I was able to walk into a group of children playing on a vacant lot unnoticed, until I pulled out my camera.  I’ve been spotted.

Getting mobbed by kids wanting to have their photograph taken is always a given.  One of these days I will sit down with them and ask them why, just as I should sit down with my own kids and ask them why they don’t want to be photographed.

Older kids need to look cool, so there’s no worry about getting mobbed.

And then there are kids who have been ordered to sit and face the wall.
