Birthday Party Photography Tips
For a Child’s Birthday Party
Why not have a photography themed birthday party Children love playing. They are completely devoid of inhibitions and when they are having fun, they are having FUN! They are going to jump, run, play, dance, eat, and OMG! Did that little boy just kiss your girl on her cheeks? LOL.
You can get some really cute snaps. Their faces are going to be livid with expressions, so make sure you capture those moments. If it is a birthday party with a theme, like say Super-heroes theme for a boy, or Princess theme for a girl, then have something like a cut-out in the garden, or against a plain wall and have the kids pose in front of it to take photos.
For a Teenager’s Birthday Party
I am sure you have arranged for that cute guy from your class to come over as well, and you must be dying to take pictures with him, right? Make your friend’s partners in crime, and make sure to get yourself taken with that guy. If you are going to head outdoors, like to the mall, or for a movie, take your camera along with you. Most cell phones have a camera these days and a good camera too.
Make sure you take pictures with everybody – you and your friends, your friends without you, you and the cute guy, you and your best friend with your respective cute guys, group pictures, couple pictures, all sorts of combinations. You can even print these pictures and use them in the future, like on a Valentine card maybe …?
For a 21-Year Old’s Birthday Party
Turning 21 spells out lots of things for different people. Make sure you click yourself with your first drink in hand, even if it is only wine. If you want some funny or wacky pictures, you could maybe act drunk and click some pictures with lots of empty alcohol bottles around! Cheesy? Cheap? So what?
It’s fun to do stupid things once in a while! If you are going to hit the local casinos, go click! You first spin at the roulette table, your first hand of Blackjack, even the first time you hit the Jackpot machine is all indeed special, no matter whether you win or lose. Ensure you capture these moments.
For a 50-Year Old’s Birthday Party
I am guessing you are probably married have one or maybe two kids, a nice house and all that jazz. Why not take the opportunity of your birthday to do something different? You have worked hard to earn the life you are living; now it’s time to do something for yourself. Get a make-over. Go on a shopping spree. Spend the afternoon with your gal-pals instead of with the laundry!
And take pictures doing all these things. They are things you have not done in a long time, aren’t they? Go out on a dinner date with your partner. Or take your partner out if he/she has turned 50!
For a 60+ Birthday Person
Take the opportunity to reconnect with old friends. Social networking websites have made it a lot easy to find almost anybody. Also, take the time out to celebrate with your family. Your kids, perhaps your grandchildren as well. Celebrating turning 60 is the perfect kind of occasion to organize a big family reunion.
Call everybody – even that cousin you fought with and haven’t been speaking to since you were 30. Bury the hatchet, embrace each other, and smile at the camera! Click a huge family picture with everybody in it; and when I say everybody, I mean everybody, including your dog and cat!
Some General Birthday Party Photography Tips
Make sure you click at least two individual pictures – one a portrait photograph, and one head-to-toe.
Click at least one picture with your Mom and Dad. But do click one. You will cherish these memories in the later years.
Try and click these ‘planned’ pictures early on in the party. Capture some candid moments as well Even if you are not into photography, there is a little bit of photography in all of us. Don’t we understand when our picture doesn’t come out right?
If we can understand that, we should be able to figure out how to take a good picture ourselves; it is not that hard.
