The Young Photographer!

1 Comment

Following the purchase of my new Canon body I decided that it would be fun and interesting to let Ben use my very old Canon Digital Rebel – my very first dSLR. Given we were off out on a family outing I thought it would be interesting to see what images he got compared to me. Needless to say he took twice as many as me and mainly of things I never thought to photograph! In fact I would have to say that given he likes to rush around so much I was really quite impressed with some of the photos he took. When I get a chance I will put together a few and post them. Until then, I thought I would post some shots of Ben in action! He looks comfortable and natural and if he continues to be interested, I reckon he would make a great full-time photographer. Although, considering he is only 6, he has quite a lot of time to think about his future career!!!

One shot, posted at the bottom, I thought was particularly good. He was lucky enough to bring home Beat Baby from school and so wanted to take lots of shots with her in it. The one he took as we were waiting for lunch is brilliant, even more so because at the same time he was taking it, I was taking a photo of him. The combined images are like a, what was the photographer taking a picture of, and what the photographer actually saw…

Trainspotter or photographer?
