Do you have any good tips for teaching children about photography?
My daughter, whom just turned 11 in late May, has started to take an interest in Photography. As a mother with a passion for photography it is incredibly gratifying to know that I make my job look fun enough for my children to be possibly interested in it, because let's face it. If it isn't fun...they just aren't interested. My biggest tip would be to pace yourself. Trying to learn photography myself was frustrating. Trying to translate something so complicated to children can burn them out quickly. My best bit would be to find a good starter digital camera. I am hoping to teach my child how to shoot in manual mode, so when she gets older she has the tools to pursue it seriously if she wants to. Kids are very visual. They are also quicker learners than adults seem to be in my experience. Finding ways to make a game of things, and really learning to take it one thing at a time is best.
