  • so true when mom is looking stunning kids treat you well..!! my 18 months old kid becomes really happy and starts to jump and run around when he sees me getting ready and wearing colour full clothes..!!! Thanks for the tip. never discussed before.

  • would love to work with you one day:). As u said always use your natural poses and make comfortable ur child which is very necessary as i found while making pics of kids.i always ask my client, tell me the schedule of ur kid and when he/she loves to play so adjust my time accordingly. thanks alot Parmita for sharing your valuable experience with us.

  • Hey Pramita, Hope you are doing great. your videos are really helpful. Can you please make video on how to pose with Husband. Thank you!!

  • How can I look slightly slimmer? Can you ask a photographer to keep shots at a certain level,like no full body shots? Or request certain “poses”?

  • After reading this I find I can now understand what a lens and the numbers on the Lens are about. I can now determine which lens to use when taking shots. I can also always refer back for reference. I want to continue to gain knowledge in the photography field. This would have been especially helpful to me several years ago.

  • #Hi, I’m Razib I’m professional Retoucher/ Photographer/Editor specializing in NewBorn, Beauty/portrait, Fashion, Product, Commercial…

  • Thank you for taking the time for these awesome helpful tips. my daughter Deandra Brant is an aspiring photographer and im excited to share these tips. You’re so talented, whitty and humble enough to teach us. Thank you again.

  • I’m not a professional but i do photography as a hobby and from what understand, it’s always best to keep your ISO at a minimum to reduce noise. Still not sure why this lady puts her ISO so high?

  • I just came across your video and I like it! Ur stunning! I’m a mother of 4 and recently I’ve gain so much weight that I feel that I really spoilt the pic cos i look so fat!!! Is there any tips to looks leaner. ��

  • Thanks a lot for this video. Really helpful. Do you have any video about taking pictures with family (me, my husband and son) while travailing?

  • love your videos, just subscribed! Question, my family and I are going to Charleston SC this summer and we would like to hire a professional photographer to do some beach photos. Any advice on finding a good photographer?

  • Very nice and good idea. we also did similar for our little brother. check this out, and don’t forget to subscribe, like and share.

  • gr8 ideas..i always watch your video n try these tips in my next pictures n this time when I was watching this all the activities I can do with my niece was going into my mind.. thanks dear

  • Her instructions are for dads/moms who bought a camera from an SLR camera with kit lens and she gives suggestions on that ground. Most families like this will not have good lighting set up. They will not also have high quality flash as well as the knowledge of good flash set up. If you see a picture taken at ISO 3200 in a 5*7 view or your cell phone, you wouldn’t notice any noise. For larger views, noise reduction in camera or post processing (again I don’t think these dads/moms would have access to lightroom etc) would do a great job, noise reduction also helps for portraits by providing smooth skin. For people who are cursing her to start at ISO 400, you shouldn’t. At ISO 400, cameras will not have any noticeable light but it is important to set the shutter speed as high as possible for babies who moves a lot. Of course, if you can, take the picture at ISO 100 by using probes and flashes etc but then this video is not for you.

  • Thank you thank you thank you. Thanks a lot for making this video. my son is 3 and visually impaired and its impossible to take any pictures with him. He doesn’t understand that he has to look or smile at the lenses. But the idea of playing with them while snapping worked wonders. Pics came out great, he is smiling and it made me cry looking at them later. Thank YOU.

  • you’re tips are really reasonable and very helpful..i recently had bell’s palsy and has lost my lovely smile and instead has a loopsided one. can you please tell me some poses that will minimize my loopsided smile in a picture? thanks.

  • Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive watch something like this before. So nice to find somebody with some original thoughts on this subject. realy thanks for beginning this up. this video is one thing thats needed on the internet, someone with a bit originality. helpful job for bringing something new to the internet!

  • Mera face photos me bohot bara lagti hay. How can I solve this problame? May thorisi over weight hu. Islia plz koi suggestion dijia.

  • Your joking right?? An high ISO such as 3200 is ridicules in a studio. the quality of the photo would come out terrible.. worst information

  • I am extremely disappointed in the comments from other photographers. If I knew of you or anyone who wanted to use you I would send them somewhere else. You are rude and unprofessional. Period.

  • wow, awesome video… in love with your channel. I wish to have a video how to pose with friends. how to make faces when u r in group selfie or photograph.

  • Thank You SO MUCH. Any idea if it is possible to reduce that awful sound Canon makes? It seem to be disturbing my baby a lot! My husband got as a 5D mark IV… Still learning that beast… I need to grow bigger hands I guess!:)

  • I learn something new out of every video THANK YOU Canon and Kelly Brown for this wonderful collaboration.

    Time to practice my skill with my 750D

    @Canon, can I purchase direct f1.8 50mm lens? Can you link me, please ����
