Do you have any good tips for teaching children about photography?
Just give them a camera (a point-and-shoot to begin with) and give them free rein. You'd be surprised at what they could capture and how! Give them simple assignments --e.g. Today, let's take pictures of things that begin with S (or all things yellow)... and let them have fun.
Where is your favorite place to take photographs?
Anywhere with good natural light... with a "clean" background. I love taking pictures in open areas or at the beach (when there are not too many people about).
What's a creative tip for taking good photographs of children?
Not exactly a "creative" tip... but I find that be their shadow.helps --i.e., getting them to be comfortable around you enough to simply go about doing what they do, without being self-conscious. Engage them, if you can, but not too much. Just let them be... and shoot away. The best photos I get of my children are the ones where they are simply being themselves, doing whatever it is that they do.
