Default Budding Photographer part 2!

Some of you may remember this thread from WAAAAAY back...

http://forums.steves-digicams.com/pe...tographer.html

Well, since I upgraded, I decided to let Abby learn to use a DSLR on my beat up K10D (my backup, but I told her it's hers unless I need to use it). She's very good with this sort of thing for someone 5 years young! She's in heaven right now rushing to show me every shot. Starting her off in green mode and going to slowly teach her manual functions.

Fantastic picture of your little one with the K10D. Isn't it great to see her youthful enthusiasm and the fact that she loves to show you her pictures !


Get children started early in photography. I started my daughter when she was about 8 years old with my Yashicamat 124 G .

It's a medium format TLR with a waist level finder. I would put it on a tripod and she learned to compose her pictures, using the viewfinder.

She's always been quite an artist and now is in her 20's.

Its a Great opportunity for her to learn, Eddie.
I don't think I could have done that with my girl when she was 5.
Not her fault, it would have driven me nuts making sure she took care of the camera, I can't even get my wife to keep up with her lens cap!

Thanks! I was so proud. When she was done, she turned it off, replaced the lens cap, and put it back in the case. She had a ton of fun with it.

Great shot!

I do the same with my son and my nieces, my youngest niece loves walking around taking photo's with my K-7. It's really cute as she can barely lift the thing with the battery grip on there as well.

Wonderful shot and memory of a place in time. She will undoubtedly become a fine photographer like her dad.

Great shot Eddie, It's amazing what kids can come up with, I got some of my grandchildren a P&S camera for Christmas last year and some of the shots are quite good.

My daughter is somewhat older (22) but I had her manually focusing the other night (I was testing the Tamron 500 and 55-300 + AFAx1.7) and she really enjoyed it, comparing her shots to see which were the sharpest !

What a lovely shot you have taken there .... I bet she'll love it too in years to come.
