Top Ten Secrets for Perfect Baby & Child Portraits by Clay Blackmore

I learned a ton about photography from bloggers during our Pro Photography Tips editorial series recently, but I still don't either a) own a DSLR or b) consider myself a very good photographer. I would love to get better at taking pictures in 2013. Clay Blackmore's Top Ten Secrets combines practical tips (use a cat toy to tickle your baby's nose for a laughing shot) with pages and pages of examples showing how to work with various props and where to stand to get a great angle.
