    This weekend i'm taking pictures of an amazingly cute little boy. hes 8 years old and VERY energetic. i'm not quite sure how to go about keeping things interesting, how to keep him from getting bored. any advice for taking pictures of chrildren...very...active...chrildren? (though i must say, hes one of those, "smile-any-time-a-camera-is-near" kind of kids, so natural images may be difficult as well)

    *i posted this in another forum as well, i'm hoping to get different view points*

    A child's attention span is short so have a plan going in and shoot quickly. After a few minutes a typical child will lose patience and stop cooperating, so the first few are usually very important.
