  1. Wow, what beautiful eyes that boy has. What is your biggest difficulty in doing the clicks with young boys and sometimes so treacherous? I will add you to my favorite blogs

  2. Thanks for your comment Roberto! Young children move quickly, so you have to move with them and shoot a lot of frames. You often have to fool them into posing for you by making it a game. One way I get close ups is to tell the child to see if they can see my eyeball inside the lens. They will get very close and peer intently, and get very excited if they see the mirror open and close.
