Heartwarming Photos of Children Taken Using the Belair Cameras

1

There's always something heartwarming and rewarding with taking photos of children. Their smiles and gestures are natural and precious, but it can be challenging to get a good photo when they're busy playing around! If you're thinking of taking some photos with your Belair camera, you might want to check out some beautiful snaps by our fellow lomographers and be inspired!

Kids are always fun to photograph — they’re carefree, they pose naturally, and are always ready to flash a heartwarming smile once you get them comfortable with you following around with a camera. But, it can also be challenging to get a couple of good snaps, especially when you’re trying to get babies and toddlers to sit or stand still for a portrait. If you’re thinking of photographing your kids or even favorite nephews, nieces, and children of your friends and neighbors, it pays to be prepared with a handful of tips and a camera that will help you get great photos.

Perhaps, the Belair X 6-12 would be a good choice for this task, since working with medium format film ensures that your photos are crisp, clear, and nicely detailed. The Belair has automatic shutter settings, high-quality lenses, extensive ISO range of 50-1600, and three image formats (6×6, 6×9, 6×12), giving you full rein on the photos you want to take while chasing around your carefree subjects!

Some of our fellow lomographers have successfully taken some beautiful photos of children using their Belair X 6-12 cameras. Take a look at what they managed to snap in the selection below:
