My love for the camera is now rubbing off on my daughter who is beginning to take great photos. In fact, for her birthday we bought her a digital camera for her very own. She has a real knack for catching a subject at just the right time.
Teaching your children how to take pictures is a skill they will appreciate and use their entire life, possibly even landing them a dream job. If you're looking for some great step-by-step tutorials and articles on photography, be sure and check out my November 2009 Digest. It is filled with great websites, tips, and tricks for taking the best photos as well as some great ideas for what to do with those special shots.
You can also check out this photography newsletter that I wrote last year.
