Photography for Kids



These pictures were taken by an amateur photographer. My then eight-year old son. All my kids are interested in photography. They love to capture images when we travel, or take goofy shots of themselves and their friends. What an easy and expressive way to be creative!!
I found a couple of great websites today. Big Learning Photography for Kids has much information and links. I think any beginning photographer (myself included) can learn a lot about photography from this site. BetterPhoto.com is a fun site with lots of help to take better pictures. Fun photo assignments and tips too.
There are lots of cheap digital cameras today. My kid's photos help me appreciate their view of the world!! As we know, sometimes a photo is worth a thousand words. And it is much quieter too ;)

It's also easy to blog with photos (as we know by participating in Wordless Wednesday). I am going to take some of those most excellent tips to heart.

Thanks for sharing!
