Budding

My son has a hobby. It's photography. Granted, his skills are still what some would consider, "In Progress", but he's coming along. Here is just a sampling of the many, MANY photos that he has discretely taken secretly without my knowing. Have I mentioned that he takes these when I'm not around?

Oh. Sorry.


I'm assuming this one was just a practice picture. You know, make sure the ISO is on the right setting; the flash on "auto". You know. General preparedness.



For the real budding photographer, however, sometimes more than one prep photo is necessary.



Then when the camera settings are all in place it is important to locate the subject of one's photos.




But beware! Sometimes said subject is quick and sprightly! One must be fast! Finger always on the shutter.


Concentration is key. Never forget about the subject, even if he or she happens to be crawling in the opposite direction. Photographing other objects of happiness can wait.




Ahhhh....absolute cuteness. And (almost) perfectly captured! Good job, William!

NOW PUT MY CAMERA AWAY!

Way to "capture the moment" William!! Great shots =)

Uncle Andy recommends the Canon SLR, but you might like the Nikon or Minolta... all a personal preference ;)

Love you!

My son's name is William :)

I've given my camera to my daughter since she was 3 and have always been thrilled with her pictures. I love being able to see her little perspective of the world, the height and angles of everything she captures. Often, she sees things that we look over and will get the most amazing pictures. I love it. I've even started to use the promise of letting her take pictures as a coerce to get her to go places with me.
