There is an obvious time for posed and formal portraits. I have written lots of posts with tips on improving posed portraits, and getting the most out of those shots.
Sometimes though, it’s time to just let loose and play.
Today’s tip is to encourage you to let your subjects play. Laugh, tickle, wrestle, goof around. Don’t be serious. Don’t worry about taking a ‘perfect’ photo.
Instead, have FUN! You will capture beautiful, remarkable and memorable photos this way. I promise.
