How To Take Great Birthday Photos

Birthday parties, particularly those held for tots under 10, are prime photo time. You want to capture the guests, the cake, the cake with candles, the kids post cake and of course, all the beautifully wrapped presents.

If you're not a photography wiz, check out Digital Photography School's guide to photographing a child's birthday party.

Best tips: Always remember to "Get a Child’s perspective," which means you should get down to a child's eye level for the most animated photos, and "Look for the Party Details," which reminds us to capture the subtle images like cup cake decorations, party hats or the birthday girl's sparkly pink nails.

I love those tips especially the one about getting 'a child's perspective.' I did a photography project based on a child's perspective it was very interesting to say the least. It was hard on my knees though. lol...

these are really good, thanks for this! i especially like the one about crouching down. i'm not a child but am very short (under 5') so a lot of photos of me are mostly of the top of my head.
