This is what happens when you give a kid a camera.
And let him change all of the settings.
What you think is beautiful–or at least worth taking a photo of–and what he thinks, might be worlds apart. Why that’s a good thing.
You already know what you think is beautiful. But what do your kids think?
Give them their own perspective, let them have a chance to change the settings on the camera and figure out how things work. What interests them? What might keep them going (for seven hours) at a park that’s only flowers?
I thought we might last two hours. We stayed all day. My son figured out the “selective color” option where you choose a single color that the lens takes in. He found “miniature mode” which turns your photo into an electric train set.
