Did some self family pictures this weekend. Talk about tough. It wasn't to bad when it was my wife, daughter and I but when we did some later in the day with our other daughter her husband and our grandkids was pretty hard. Hit the timer and run and get in the picture. The hardest part was trying to get our granddaughter to look towards the camera. As you can see it just wouldn't work.

I just got my first pair of glasses that I didn't think I needed. I apologize to anybody in the past year that I said their pictures were out of focus lol.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Wireless shutter release is pretty cheap. Not only can it be useful it can be a lot of fun.

This is a really hard thing to get done.

I have had the best luck by starting out with pics of just the child, or just the child and their immediate family. That way you can make funny noises or wave a toy around from behind the camera to get their attention. Once the child is looking in the right direction (mostly), and you have a keeper or two of that group, cool it with the noises and quickly jump in front of the camera yourself. They are used to looking at it now and, while not full proof, this should help your keeper rate. I have also found that a flash will often times get and keep a young child's attention. They will be looking towards the flash so if it is off camera make sure everyone else is too. One last thing is to make sure the adults know to keep looking at the camera and not at the child.

And when worst comes to worst, take a number of photos and let photoshop save the day!

Its just as hard to get the young ones to look at the camera when using a remote. Even more difficult when using a strobe. They just stare at the light in anticipation of it going off. :lol:
