Day 16: First steps as a creative

Monday, January 16, 2017

There’s something humbling about being asked by your own children to teach them how to take photos. They don’t mean the basic photos you get from an automatic point-and-shoot that get uploaded to the internet; they want to know how to create the short depth-of-field effects, how to compose and crop, how to adjust levels, how to get the photo on to the computer, print it out, and hang it on the wall in a picture frame…

They’ve already got their own cameras and my old MacBook Pro to play with… I guess it’s time to invest in a little printer.

 


About today’s photo: the kids screwing around with my camera at f/1.8 and autofocus enabled.
