Make a Splash with Flash

Some point and shoot cameras even have a “kids” mode most of which boils down to the same exposure advice I’m gonna give you right now: When photographing kids outdoors, turn on the flash. Flash will add some additional sparkle and illumination to have the kids “pop” out from the background and fill in shadows because you won’t always e in the most perfect position to catch that special moment of fun. The small pop-up flash built into point and shoot cameras and many digital SLRs is a good place to start, but don’t be afraid to use a larger shoe-mounted flash that’s part of (or compatible with) your camera system.
