    My youngest daughter (9 years old) is a budding photographer, maybe (I can hope!).

    I'll have to see if she sticks with it.

    She has a pretty good natural eye, and really likes to shoot with her camera (or use mine). I think she has a better natural eye than I do. I have to use tricks I've read and think about composition, etc. She's doing pretty nicely on her own.

    She shot these, though I did a little levels adjustment. (First is the EOS-M, the other two are RX100)

    Really good photos, but sad. She does indeed have a good eye!

    The little gray kitten has conjunctivitis, maybe?

    An emerging talent! Very nice photos.
    Perhaps you will see her world as well when you shrink? ;-)

    Sorry -- should have put a note on the kitties. We found (literally) a barrel full of farm cats on our vacation. There was like 8-10 of them.

    Yeah, soon we have another member, give her more oppotunity to shoot, gave her a camera to own,
    This way she can shoot more and grow from there.

    In our family line most of us like to shoot picture, I have two cousin that is making a living from photography and
    Videography, from a young age we were given camera by our father and shooting is second nature.

    Wt21 hope you can give her this opportunity and I believe she can do it.

    I can relate -- my daughter took over my Pens.

    But, I didn't go over the Dark Side for nothing -- I now tell the House Treasurer "see, our daughter took over my Pen. I need another body at least!"
     
  11. Nice. Keep her practicing.
