Put three young cousins together at a playground and then expect them to pose for the camera. Yeah right – sounds like a Tui ad doesn’t it. Actually photographing the boys at play was just as much fun as getting them to pose for the camera. I much prefer the natural look you get from children when they are not focusing on what the camera is doing. These three all had very practiced faces that they put on when you ask them to smile, the trick to getting the good shot was to wait until that look was relaxed.
I particularly like this playgound with all it’s bright colours that give a fun feel to the shots. The tunnel provides a fun frame to a portrait and the whole photoshoot is more fun for the kids because they get to play at the same time.
