My wife bought our eldest daughter a photography workbook. Go Photo! produced by the Aperture Foundation is pretty much the best book for kids on photography I have seen. The first few pages of tips and tricks are things that most photographers should internalize immediately, but sadly a lot of us don’t or we forget to keep them in mind.
I thought I’d take a moment to share with you the images from our Dad and Daughter photo scavenger hunt that we did, prompted by the book. We did them in about thirty minutes so they are not the most skilled of images. I was using the Fujifilm XT20 and my daughter was using a Canon Powershot ELPH 360 (in purple of course).
I’m going to post the photos side by side, her’s and mine, but not in any order. Each set is a theme determined by the book. I’m not going to list the theme. Get the book or try to guess what the theme is on your own!
If you have kids I highly recommend this. Seeing how our minds work differently and together was one of the highlights of my January. Watching my daughter use a camera is always amazing. I can’t wait to see if she grows more into it as an art form.
