I figured I'd put this in this forum since my daughter is a beginner. I'll put up some of her shots later. So check this out... I had a "rush" job this weekend, which means I had to take some time away from the family to get the shots. I decided, as an experiment, to bring along my 7 year old daughter Emma. I figure "Career Day!!" Right? Anyway, we pack along her little pink Fisher Price camera, but I forgot that I had taken the stupid memory card out of it, so she ran out of pictures really quickly ... like in 10 minutes. Odds are good I would be here for another 2 hours and there was no way she was going to be kept interested 2+ hours without her camera. Now what? Well... I did bring along my D100 (my backup camera). Do I dare let her use it? <shudder> Gotta do something, and really that camera is only worth a few hundred bucks now anyway, as much as I love the old thing. Ok, let's try it. I give her some basic instructions and some very firm words on being careful, not touching the lens, no running, etc. Much to my surprise, she took to it instantly and was REALLY enjoying it. She even giggled when she was able to take 3-4 pictures in rapid succession. "This is so cool Daddy!!!" I was beside myself. I'd turn around and she was crouched down taking pictures of a leaf or a bug close up, or literally lying on the ground taking pictures looking up at one of the buildings I was shooting. I was floored! I mean, sure, 95% of the pics were horrible , but actually some of them really weren't at all bad. Anyway, I ripped off a few pictures of her. They're nothing of any real merit from a portrait perspective, but I really wanted to share and I knew this would get REALLY lost in the "just for fun" section, so please forgive me. == 1 == Helping get some pics of the buildings. == 2 == "This is so cool Daddy!" == 3 == Obligatory shot of someone using the camera. == 4 == Getting creative on the building shots.
