From Subject to Photographer

While visiting a playground this last weekend, Dovid mentioned that he enjoyed watching the birds. Well I explained, if you like watching them you're going to love photographing them. I handed him my DSLR with 300mm lens, showed him where the viewfinder, zoom and shutter button were and sent him on his way.

After watching Dovid shoot photos for a while, Tzipora wanted in on the action and I gave her the same quick tutorial.

For the rest of the day, including our trip to Castle Island, the kids took turns shooting with my DSLR.

Below are some examples of their work. I couldn't be more proud of them.

You can bet that our next trip is going to include even more photography. Perhaps a trip to the zoo is in order to practice photographing animals? Or maybe we tackle some photo challenges? Is it too early to teach them the rule of thirds? Oh, this is going to be fun!
