Helping your gifted child reach his/her potential

Modeling and acting business is very exciting world to be in. Everybody wants to see their child on the cover of a magazine, billboard or TV commercial. No matter how old your child is, there is always a chance for that. Children advertise a lot nowadays, and even if your child will never pursue a commercial acting career in future, even a single-time experience will help in gaining self-confidence. One of the most important things you will need is a set of photos that can be used to give to agencies. You don’t need to have expensive professional shots done, just some proper ones that an agency can look at. Make sure that you have a good shot of your child smiling. It is good to have larger sized shots, so an agency has a good idea of how your child looks. It’s not as easy to take really good photos of children, and in most cases photos will need more processing afterwards. Very small children soon forget about the camera, but it is still very much worth while to set up activities which really immerse them, so as to catch them fully occupied with what they are doing. There will surely be extra unnecessary elements in the resulting images, but you can crop your photos leaving only the desired parts making a plain portrait photo. To print photos properly you may need to change their dpi. You can correct brightness and contrast of the image, or apply image effects depending on the advertising agency requirements.
