photography as a hobby for kids


A joyous experience

“Photography is visceral so it’s an ideal endeavor for even small children. They can have fun with creating imagery and will grasp even complicated principles of single-lens reflex (SLR) camera apertures, shutter speeds, lighting and more.”


Well actually, you can see that the complicated concepts is possible to be understood by children. But i think younger kids like 3 to 5 years old,i would not suggest digital slr cameras. They are kind of heavy as well. But if they have the natural flair and talent, go ahead, let them try it.

“One of my friends wants to give her son a project and thought a photography one would be fun! I love this idea and wanted to give you some ideas to do photography for kids.”


You can give a project with a theme example gardens or tourist attactions. Bring them out of the home and let them be observant of the enviroment. You can also ask them to take photographs of home sweet home as well, if they want to.

Another great suggestion is to set up private facebook group and have your kid share them there. Well As Kids, you can have your own private space as a diary of your photo collections.

Its pretty interesting when i wrote about this topic. Hope you like it.
