An invaluable skill that I’m trying to improve

As a blogger, I take a lot of photos. Because of the nature of my content, a lot of those photos are of myself, taken with a tripod and a wireless shutter release. I?ve had over 6 years of practice but roughly 4 of those years were spend on ?auto? mode with my nice DSLR camera.

After I had kids, I started to take more photos of them and got even more practice at adjusting the settings in manual to get the look I want.
Even though this skill has come a long, LONG way from 6 years ago, I still feel like I have a ton more that I could learn when it comes to photography, specifically lifestyle photography.
I can’t remember when I first stumbled upon Skillshare, an online education community with over 17,000 classes, but as someone who loves to learn, I was instantly intrigued by the concept. I’ve taken a few different classes, from hand lettering to jewelry making, in my city, but there were times I wanted to learn something new that I couldn’t find an in-person class for.
I was thrilled when Skillshare reached out to work together on this post because I loved what they offered and had already learned so much from a pizza making and pasta making class!
Besides sponsoring the post, Skillshare’s also giving the first 500 Small Things readers two FREE months of unlimited access. Just click here to start your two free months.
I browsed their photography section to find a class that could give me a few basic tips, specifically with ISO since that was something I knew so little about, and found a lot of great classes. I chose a short one on photography basics which included a dedicated section in ISO. The entire process was so quick and easy, I was toggling my ISO and seeing a difference in my photos only minutes after the class started.
I’ve always been a hands on learner. I retain so much more knowledge by doing something and learning as I go versus reading about something and then applying it later. The fact that I could have my camera in my hands, and manually adjust my settings during this class made it so easy to learn.
Like most of us, my phone is usually nearby to snap a quick photo of the kids doing something cute. Those photos are great for what they are, but I’m trying to be more diligent about taking photos of the kids with my DSLR! I put my newfound ISO knowledge to the test and snapped a couple photos of the kids playing in the driveway the other day.
I had learned that ISO is a camera’s sensitivity to light. If you are shooting in a bright environment, turn the ISO down. If you are shooting in a darker environment, turn the ISO up to make it more sensitive to light. The higher the ISO, the grainier the image will be too.

Here are 3 quick tips that may help you take better photos of kids!

Try to get them to interact with you during the shoot. I like to drive a car along my arm, up the camera, and then have it crash or do something silly to try to make them laugh! There are usually some blurry ph...
