Get Close!

1D3_1548

Photo Tip - Get Close! Especially if your taking pictures kids. Get up in there face and make them smile. Zoom lenses work great, but you will get a different look if your are physically closer to your subject. If you want to isolate your subject even more by blurring the background (out of focus elements in a picture are called bokeh), get yourself a nice prime lens.  The Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 is a good place to start and the Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 even better. If you have a Canon - get one of these Canon 50mm f/1.8.
