Playing around with my son…

Over the past few years, I have tried so hard to get my youngest son interested in photography.  I’d wanted to teach him a few tips and tricks.  Even though he has helped me on a few shoots, he has had no real interest in learning.

Well, now he is taking Photography in school (I’m sure as a blow off class!) and I assume he loves it.  The other night I caught him heading out the front door with my husbands work boots and my back-up camera that I’m letting him borrow.  What does a nosey mom do?  Follows him of course!  I asked him what he was up to and he said that he had an idea for an image.  I loved that he was being creative!  I ‘sort of’ asked if I could join him.  I went and got my camera, tripod, and a telephoto lens.

Here are a few shots that I took that night.  They’re all handheld so that he could use the tripod.  I was showing him how he really needed one for slow shutter speeds:

And this is his cat (I mean DOG – he acts like a cat) watching him:

From the images that I’ve seen him capture so far, I think that he’s got a pretty good eye and maybe one day he will join the Carol Dunnigan Photography team!
