I swear, sometimes my kids shots are better than mine. This really makes me think about perspective, about crouching down and seeing it from their height. All these pictures were taking by Jack. He’ll be 7 next week and is 4’3″. It also makes me think that kids are comfortable with other kids taking their shots, but when an adult comes along they throw sideways peace signs and do the duck lips face. You know that face right? I’m sure you’ve seen it on your teen friends facebooks.
It’s fun to see what the kids can capture, and I really do learn from them. I always go back and look at the stats to see what aperture and shutter speed and ISO it was on when they get what they get. Try it sometime! Give your camera to your kid, give them instructions on holding it and once you know they won’t drop it, let them go around for awhile. Link back to me or post your blog in the comment section to show me what YOUR kids come up with!
