About the book
In the age of smartphones and selfies, why not learn from the pros how to take great photos to share with friends and family! Here’s a fun, fact-filled, kid-friendly guide that is jam-packed with all the essentials for budding photographers. From how to set up a shot and stage the lighting and from the best software to short assignments, you’ll learn all the important photographic concepts and basics of equipment, lighting aperture, lenses, depth of field, and more. This wide-ranging book also has sections devoted to composition and photographing different subjects (animals, people, sports, landscapes). Before and after shots offer visual explanations while tips and photographs from National Geographic photographers are featured throughout, making this the best photography guide out there today for children (and adult beginners too!).
Being a blogger means taking lots of pictures, and since kids try to imitate parents, off course my son now wants to take pictures. But photography is not easy. There are so many elements to take into account when taking a picture and sometimes explaining them to a kid is not easy.
We got a copy of the book National Geographic Kids Guide to Photography: Tips & Tricks on How to Be a Great Photographer From the Pros & Your Pals at My Shot and it has been wonderful on teaching my son how to take quality pictures.
The book covers topics such as taking pictures with your Smartphone, your SLR camera and even underwater cameras. It also has photography assignments and tips and tricks from experts. It includes set ups and gives information about lighting.
I am really excited because after just a few days I have seen the difference on the quality of the pictures my son takes and since the language the book is written is so easy to follow, I know he will be going back to reference to it any time he has a photography question.
