Introduce your kids to photography

If you notice that your kid has an eye for beauty, then maybe you should consider giving him a taste of photography. Hey, they’re never too young to learn. Taking pictures is all about seeing the beauty in things around us, and introducing your kid to photography opens up an entirely different world for him.

For starters, you could lend your kid your trusty old point and shoot, and get him used to the feeling of having it in his hands. Acquaint him with the buttons, flash, and zoom functions. Tell him the importance of handling the camera with care, and that it’s a piece of equipment not akin to his action figures which he can just freely toss around. Remind him to keep his fingers off the lens, and to keep the cap on when not in use.

When he’s ready to shoot, you can start with things around the house… food on the table, his sister, his pet dog. Allow him the freedom to choose his subjects, and don’t worry about any rules on photography. Simply let him shoot and see how the pictures turn out.

After you’ve loaded the pictures on to the PC from record to disk, just let him marvel at his shots. This will motivate him to learn more complex photography techniques. With the world of photography, he may learn to see things in ways he never has before.

Photography as a SAHM Hobby

SAHM. Four letters which stand for Stay At Home Mom. Don’t think for a minute that it means Stuck At Home Mom. Just because you’re a mom who spends almost every waking, and sleeping, hour at home, doesn’t mean you have no opportunity for personal growth.

Photography, the basic type, is a good choice for somebody like you. With a simple point-and-shoot camera, you can beautifully capture snapshots of your daily life with your kids. Those pictures need not be overly ostentatious. Just shoot away around your house or backyard. With the power of photography, any subject can switch from mundane to exciting.

There are many options for you to make the most of whatever little free time you may have at home. You do need to take a break from doing the dishes, cleaning Rico Reeds, and the laundry, you know.
