      Leave staged formal portraits for studios, and focus on capturing the child in a carefree, candid moment. A child in the midst of celebrating his soccer team's victory, or focusing intently on a crawling bug, makes an emotionally telling photograph with a story behind it. Learn to watch through your viewfinder so that you'll be ready to capture the decisive moment when it arrives. As you practice this technique, your timing will improve and your watchful eye will sharpen, resulting in more and more "candid keepers."
