    Default Guiding my son to learn photography

    Dear all,

    I'm guiding my 14 years old son to pick up interest on photography.. but, my "teaching" is very "dry" and afraid lost his interest....

    As Internet is the key media now and would like to look for some interesting sites to use as the teaching medias for his learning.. Appreciate any recommendation of exciting and fun sites to use.

    Thanks.

    Seriously... let him have a camera and start shooting at auto mode first. Let him have a feel of composing and understanding how an image can be made first

    Once he has more interest, then you can start on the proper understanding of ISO, aperture and shutter speed and how it affects the picture taken.

    Thanks.

    He already have some hands on with my prosumer camera.. I had feeding him some information on & off during his shooting on some family event..But, just wanted him to have some proper way of learning photography in orderly manners.

    Just out of topic a bit sorry, why do you want your son to pick up interest on photography?
    If he is already into it naturally, its alright you can pass him ur prosumer and he can play with it .... he will be very happy slowly exploring the features and function.

    if he is not into it and u wanted him to take it up .. i think its tough ....

    just my thoughts, no offence. coz i think interest and hobby is very individual.
    LIFE is like Photography. You use the Negatives to develop. The Pictures to prove the beauty.

    i share the same thoughts too...

    u can see in cs there are a few very young pg who are very good in photography.... i guess they achieved so much due to their strong interest in it...

    when it becomes a chore, it is no longer interesting...
