Being a photographer involves a delicate balance of taking control, providing direction and letting go at the right time. Traditionally when the photographer arrives, most will come to attention as if going off to battle. Truly an endearing moment. Such is the moment when the photographer must provide clear, accurate direction particularly if one is taking photos of the formal kind. In my world these moments pass quickly. Depending on ages of people being photographed and the environment, something magical can happen and will. Everybody begins to relax and the initial anxiety of getting ones pictures taken passes and relaxation and joy takes over.
Now is the time for the photographer to become invisible to the eyes of those being photographed, particularly when it comes to the little ones. Watch carefully as those you are photographing take a moment to explore the world around them and watch the magic happen!
