Budding Photog

Curiosity is a wonder to watch, especially in young kids. Quinn was one year old when he first showed an interest in my camera. By 20 months old, that interest had increased and I found it difficult to photograph him. He would walk right up to the camera to check out this magical device that kept flashing at him. By the time he was two he knew where to look at the back of his toy camera, just like the pros. Budding PhotographerHow does it look?

 A few weeks ago we visited Quinn and his family to deliver the photo books they ordered. I brought along a Canon rangefinder that I thought Quinn would find interesting. Budding PhotographerSay Cheese!

He was, so I showed him how to look through the viewfinder and click the shutter. Pretty soon he was enjoying himself, but after a while, he realized that I was holding the “special” camera. 1st camera lessonCamera lessopn #ThroughGlass

While hold the bottom of the heavy camera, I showed Quinn where to put his finger on shutter release and how to look through the view finder. In a flash, we were off taking photos of everything that caught his eye - mom and dad, a basket of books, a basketball hoop, his train set. Quinn's PhotosImages by Quinn

I think in a few short years, Quinn’s curiosity may be kindled into a budding career or at least a satisfying hobby. Who knows, I may have some competition!
