You must first set up the camera
(A) A-Mode or S / Tv-Mode good use
If you get a basic understanding of photography, you will know that A-Mode Aperture Priority and S / Tv-Mode Shutter Priority usage, photo printing nz when shooting with two more children we can model to concentrate on the composition of it!
A-Mode Aperture Priority: self-adjusting aperture and ISO, shutter is determined by the camera
S / Tv-Mode Shutter Priority: Self-adjusting shutter speed and ISO, wall art nz aperture determined by the camera
When using A-Mode, you can use the aperture to control depth of field and the amount of light, the larger the aperture (such as f / 2.8) there will be more shallow depth of field, large aperture also can make faster shutter;
When using the S / Tv-Mode, you to choose the shutter speed. For example, 1 / 100s, so you can make sure that the photo shoot out clearly, shooting a good move children more time with ah!
Of course, if you have Xinshou on M-mode full manual mode using the M-mode so that you can better understand the exposure, since the camera’s metering function is always not perfect ah (then remember to make use +/- EV Exposure make up)!
The use of A-Mode with +/- EV, and the children could have been behind the colorful Graffiti RV accurate exposure!
(B) make good use of CS
Normally we shoot landscapes, most of the time will be single shooting, but a lot of kids in action, and expressive, using the camera’s continuous shooting function more effectively capture the funny side of children! When using continuous shooting can also be used in conjunction AF-On button (pressing the AF-On lets the camera keep focus, continuous shooting started after the composition is not afraid to lose focus, teaching details please see this article), so that the composition when more convenient!

(C) The shutter is not too painful!
Photography new parents often mistake one photo is blurred, especially in places such as shopping malls and other indoor, but also because a lot of the time the shutter is too slow, in addition to keep ‘safety shutter,’ students can make recommendations than the safety shutter value a little faster, so a photo clearer.
To effectively enhance the shutter speed, you can use a large aperture or a little higher ISO, indoor mall seems bright, but in fact is not enough light for the camera, in order to maintain a little faster shutter speed, ISO and sometimes also used on 800 1600 too!
In low-light areas (such as children stood Graffiti sport utility car) Please note that when shooting shutter speed, then there is a requirement to enhance the ISO it!
(Iv) lens options
Shooting for children generally use 50mm or 85mm focal length can be, and most of the package will contain 50mm lens focal length it is applied. If you have a photo requires a little higher, you can buy additional expensive large aperture fixed focus lens 50mm f / 1.8, or it is suitable for shooting portraits 85mm f / 1.8 can also be large aperture for shallow depth of field and maintain a low ISO useful!
Shooting composition skills

Ready camera, to capture fast capture children adorable side of it!
Sometimes when you pay attention when capturing the iris can be reduced a little (for example, f / 4 or f / 5.6), so that a wider range of depth of field, especially in the use of ‘blind shot’ technique (that is, not to watch the viewfinder will direct feel of shooting)
(C) let the children move
In filming Elements see a lot of parents always told the children obediently stood beside one of the decorative rainbow shooting, in fact, a better way is to let the children move around more, and more to explore different environments, because they face the most playing time rich natural, so make beautiful photo opportunities will be greatly increased!
