Inspiring young photographers
I took my little sister out on a Sunday to Red Rock Canyon. She wanted to learn a bit about photography. So on the way there, I talked to her about what photography is and the 3 elements of exposure: Shutter speed, aperture and ISO.
When we got there (had to make 2 U-turns as I passed the exit twice) we went down the trail with the plan of getting to a big rock that I believed would give us a great view of the red rocks one way, and of the sunset the other. When we made it near the rock, we realized it was impossible to get up there, so we had to change our plans. It was getting dark quickly and I wanted to teach her a bit about flash photography as well, so we had to hurry.
I taught her about the rule of thirds and she took her first few landscape shots (not bad for her first time). Then, as it got darker, we fired up the flash, I showed her how to use it and had her take a few shots of me, I think they came out pretty good.
It’s awesome to see I’m inspiring her with my work and making her want to learn a bit about what I do. She’s even joining us again soon for a photoshoot we’re doing, she will be learning a bit about lighting and studio photography.
Quote of the day:
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
“Aaron Siskind”
