During High School I studied photography a lot and then I turned 17 and got my own camera. I took it every where and took some great pictures. (I might be a little bit biased, but I’m not sure…I’m quite critical). I learned how to use manual mode. How to position my subject. Lighting. Shutter Speed. Aperture. I wanted to know the whole inside and out about my camera, and I soon learned.
Unfortunately, after having my camera for two years, just after my warranty expired, my flash stopped working all together. Most places I called or contacted said that it would cost about $200 to fix and I didn’t have that kind of money, so I stuck it in my closet, only pulling it out on sunny days and telling myself that “…I need to get that fixed.” Well, weeks turned into months and months turned into a year. Finally, with my trip to Texas coming into view, I decided I would fix it…and sure enough, I did. (I got electrocuted, but I fixed it.)
How to Teach Your Little One Photography
Starting from a very young age I will be reading my children books with amazingly realistic paintings, like books such as Edward in the Jungle or look at paintings by Jim Daly. I want to give my kids a look at what breathe-taking photos look like.
Not only do I want to give them the resources to being a little photographer, I want to be able to give them instruction and teach them how to properly take a photograph. I mean there is a saying, “Monkey see, Monkey do.” Who does your children look up to more than you? You teach by example.
Do you have a young photographer? What do you do to encourage them?
