So today we received our camera to take part in the Travel Supermarket – Kids Capture the Colour Competition – I hadn’t told Ben about it before the camera arrived so when the postman had been and I told him it was actually for him to use he looked like he might burst with excitement. I set everything up and plugged it in so it could charge ready for Chloe’s sleep in the afternoon.
Once Little Miss was asleep I sat him down and explained that we had been sent the camera to take part in a competition and that it was for him to take photos with Mummy. I decided not to go into the colour themes for now and just concentrate on showing him how to use the camera. He was keen to get started right away and once I’d shown him which button to press he was off! It’s incredible how quickly he picked up how to take a picture, turn the camera on and off and find the images he had taken. Next job is to teach him to focus & perhaps choose his subjects carefully!!
I just had to share some of the things he felt he should take photos of today in his first foray into photography . . .
Yes that is indeed a lovely close up photo of dog poo. Nice one kid! I’m not sure we’re going to win any prizes in this competition but Ben is certainly going to enjoy taking part! Fingers crossed we’ll get out and take some good photos for the colour themes this weekend! Don’t forget to check back and see our competition entry soon!
