11. Use Your Favourite Apps To Post Process The Images:
Do not stop with just taking images. Once you are done with the shots, use one of your favourite apps to post process the images. There are so many out there like VSCO, Snapseed, LR mobile, Photoshop, RNI Films, Mextures, Lenslight, Pixelmator, etc.
Remember, you cannot get a good photo from a bad one by post processing it using fancy apps. Light, composition, focus are keys to a good photograph and post processing apps are a tool to make slight adjustments to make your already good images look better.
12. Try Black and White:
Depending on the mood and theme that you have chosen to shoot images of your kids, some images could look better in black and white. This way, you leave out everything in the frame (avoid any distractions) and bring focus on the main subject, that is, your kid and what they are doing. There are many apps to post process your images in black and white. Carbon, Snapseed, VSCO, Lightroom Mobile, Photoshop are a few of them.
The tips above are not for just iPhone users. Anyone who has a smartphone with a decent camera can benefit from the tips above to make decent shots of their kids.
