Since Haishu has been born for half a year, and is going back to have a family reunion with grandparents in the approaching Spring Festival, we expressly took some photos for her to leave some good memory before she left Guangzhou. This is an array of simple photos, yet from which I hope you can discern the intimate bond between mother and son, which is an eternal tie between parents and children.
Sometimes, we need to have our eyes wide open to see what we’ve obtained?!
An increasing number of parents invite me to photograph for their children, for they’re afraid that their sweethearts are photographed to be dull or affected, and they like my photographs of children. However, I don’t think my skills are too complex, yet I can produce photographs satisfying both parents and myself. The tips are carefulness, skills, and active thinking, and child-like dynamic and static!
To capture distinctive photographs of an active child, you have to be as active as him. This is my secret of photographing, or conclusion from practices in other words. Today I show you the photographs of little boy Zhang Jiaxin, who is typically active and likes bicycling and roller skating. We had a crazy afternoon by the Zhujiang River. In the sunset, he was enjoying his wonderful time while I was recording his happiness with camera, as if racing with time. When the moment of departing came, we had become good friends, which contributed to me the greatest pleasure and grandest award in extra.
What is the tie of interpersonal relation? Affection must be the profoundest and soundest one, another is kinship, an innate relation with which people will help and attend each other even without promises or rewards. Relatives photography is easy but complicated, for you have to exude the internal relation and emotional association from their eyes and postures. As Chinese are more restrained ( usually conceal their own feelings ), it’s more difficult to demonstrate their feelings.
Here are some photos of a brother and sister, Yifan and Yilin. I appreciate the slight curiosity of the little sister and flicker of joy from the brother, which fully exposed their bond in tranquility.
You are sitting there peacefully on a boulder with the fragrance of lavender filling the air. You are looking attentively far into the distance, fully immersed in your fantancy. There are iredescent bubbles glmmering in the afterglow of the setting sun. I can see nothing but indescribable beauty.
Xiaomei and Qiongqiong were colleagues for years. They had long attachment to each other in private, yet as they worked for different departments, they had no chance to know each other. Finally, with kind-hearted friend’s help, their secrets were unveiled to each other and they got married in the end. Of course, today our protagonist is the fruit of their love—-Baby Weiyi. The photos were shot in my house in Guangzhou. Even though it didn’t take too long to photograph, amazingly she postured in place just as a little model. Here are some photos of them.
I am often questioned how to take good photos of children for all kinds of strange problems will pop up during the process, especially those uncooperative smaller ones. What postures do you expect such little children to make? Just have fun with them. Yes, most photographs of children were captured by me. You have to treat them as the children in your neighbourhood, and so they will regard you as someone familiar in return. In this way, all problems can find their solutions. This is the little boy I photographed several days ago, who had such great fun that his T-shirt was drooping and nose running. Even Though “I Love Ma Ma”on the T-shirt is not conspicuous, it had al the people present rolling in the aisles .
By the way, since at festivals, people chose to travel outside or stay at home, hope them can take more photos for children.
In Guangzhou, I often photograph for children, sometimes outdoors, sometimes in my studio, in various styles. The outdoor shooting is favorable for those animated and mischievous children, while the indoor one is suitable for the expressive children. Here are several indoor photographs of children. Including the amusing photographs of Doumi sisters.
People in China often care about China’s education. No matter where you are,parents often care about where their children go to school and what they can learn.But they often ingore developing some valuable qualities. Such as autonomy and good habits and so on.The other hand, they often advise their children to study some useless knowledge.If you often stay with children , you will have some thoughts and feelings about school education and family education.That day Hanhan came here and took pictures.When I saw his young face,I thought something about our country’s education.
