Inspired by the Follow Friday hashtag movement on twitter we started a new feature on our blog. With Follow Friday posts you can discover new, popular and up-and-coming photographers from 500px to follow and add to friends. Today we are focusing on Family Photographers and their inspirational children’s photographs.
We hope you enjoyed our roundup! This is the first Follow Friday post in this genre of photography and we can’t wait to share more features with you. Come back next Friday for incredible photographers to follow and get inspired by. Visit last post Follow Friday: High-Speed Photographers and discover great talents.
Who is your favourite family photographer at 500px? Let us know in the comments below (you can also nominate yourself).
Danbo is a little guy whom everybody loves, especially photographers. Originally a character in the comic book Danbo became a real toy shortly after. In 2009 Danbo was made a celebrity by the photo community, celebrated as most photographed and most loved photo subject. To date Danbo is loved by many and retains a popularity status.
If you were thinking of getting into Danbo photography all you need is his figurine (you can get one online for about $30), a camera and lots of imagination. The beauty of Danbo photography is how creative you can get without fancy or expensive equipment. To give you some ideas we’ve chosen some of our most loved Danbo photos from 500px. You’ll notice that most photos have a shallow depth of field, to get similar effect shoot at lowest aperture or zoom all the way in. So, take Danbo on a journey and share your photos with us. Thanks!
