Never too young to learn photography

By cazozphul  
Hi Everyone

Thank you so much for the comments on my macro work from the other day. Can't wait to try out the few suggestions.

This is a photo of my young niece who I took with me to Floriade (where I photographed the fringed tulip). She was given a Canon 600D to use for the day and had an absolute ball taking photos of whatever caught her fancy. She even learnt about f stops and depth of field. Something I should have concentrated on for my own work. But hey, I had a blast watching and helping her.

I was using my macro lens for the flower work but it is a pretty good portrait lens as well.

Nice view point to tell us how serious she was.

She is like me, we keep both eyes open when taking our photos. My nephew who is younger, uses his hand to hold his other eye closed while he takes a photo. That is funny to watch.

Yes she very well could. She is a fast learner and very keen. She didn't like relinquishing the camera even to let her little brother take a few shots. She has had a little point and shoot since she was 6 and now she is loving the "big" camera lol
