if you give a kid a camera

Pin It
If you give a kid a camera, he'll ask to take some pictures with it.  

He’ll probably go in search of one of his favorite things to photograph.
And he’ll find one.
 
And another.
 
And another.

He’ll experiment with techniques
 
And equipment.
 
Perfecting his art.
 
When he gets tired of taking pictures, he’ll move onto another activity.
 
Later on, he might want to look through the pictures he’s taken.

 
 
And chances are if you look at his pictures with him, He’ll ask you for a camera.
 
here are some other posts about children exploring with cameras:

Looking through their photos is lovely isn't it ~ seeing things from their perspective, and what interests them :-) I love that you let Bear take photos like this. Dino Boy also likes snapping up a storm with my camera

My toddler, Wild Thing, loves taking photos and I have done a couple of posts about his photos. I also have started to integrate them more and more into my own posts. The very tight shot of the hearts in this post was taken by him. http://jennifischer.blogspot.com/2012/09/wordless-wednesday-beet-juice-heart-ice.html -- I have thought about doing a series and a linky exclusively for/about photos taken by little ones and inviting others who have toddlers/preschoolers taking photos to host with me. :)

My dad got my daughter one of the Kid Tough cameras for her birthday and she loves it! She takes pictures of everyone and everything. She has more pictures of the carpet, the ceiling fan, her tv shows, me, Nana and Grandpa than I know what to do with. I've had to talk to her about taking pictures of different things that she is interested in and wants to remember. We had a playdate at our house a few weeks ago with some friends of ours and she was taking pictures of everyone saying "I want to remember everyone that was here and the fun we had!" She's only 3 so she's still learning, but we'll get there!

My kids love to steal my phone and take pics - only problem is that I have my phone hooked up to the "cloud" and so I have thousand on top of thousands of pics of randomness. lol! cute tho! gotta love em! :) Thanks for sharing!
