Description


Digitization is the biggest advance in the history of photography. While some seasoned photographers may still be wary of the filmless technique, unbiased children have easily found their way into the digital world. Children are excited by the instant gratification of capturing an image and immediately seeing the result. With today's digital cameras, what used to be an expensive and disappointing process is now as easy as pie. Enthusiastic and confident children are able to handle digital cameras with remarkable skill. The instant feedback motivates them to continue exploring, and soon they are able to create small masterpieces full of inspiration and fantasy. Photography for Kids introduces children between the ages of 8 and 14 to the world of photography. Technical concepts--like how a digital camera actually works--are explained in a way that is easy for children to understand. The book emphasizes creativity and presents techniques for capturing exciting images.
