We bought Daughter a new camera a couple of weeks back. She’s decided to take Photography as a subject next year in Year 11, so a Canon EOS 1100D was purchased, and she and I have started taking afternoon walks with our respective cameras.
I’ve started her off in Av mode, and am teaching her about depth-of-field and the importance of understanding light. I figure it’s as good a place as any to start (and being the terrible photography-snob that I am, I’ve told her that she’s not allowed to turn the dial to the green square!)
She laughs at me when I excitedly point out the shadows under railings and the glint of sunlight through leaves, but I think she’s starting to get the hang of it. Regardless, it’s wonderful to spend an hour with her (while the Little Man rides ahead on his bike) nattering about our day, what we can see and taking photos together.
