??Children of Koh Bulon (Satun Province)
Photographying children is the most challenging part of travel photography and is one of my favourite subjects. It is good to seek permission from their guardian either verbally or through body language. Be polite.
I managed to take a couples of good photos of the children in the islands of Koh Bulon last year. I visited one of the Sea Gypsies (Chao Le)??village, children were playing with sands under the stilted houses and raced around the village. No computer games. I enjoyed watching the child play and reminded me about my childhood.
The child was suspicious of me taking his photo and I hope that he will remember me one day.
Life is simple.
Rules to photography children:
- Ask permission from the guardians if possible
- Befriend the children
- Keep a distance
- Photography at eye level
- Be polite and understand the local culture.
??You will take better photos on your travel trips.
