I recently did a little shoot at the Draper Temple — yeah, the one I was cranky about in my previous post. In spite of the irritation, I actually had a lot of fun. I owe it all to my second shooter:
This little guy was great to have along. That’s four years of awesome standing there 🙂 I loaned him my backup camera and a 28mm lens — doesn’t he look like a pro? He still shoots in full auto, but I guess we should cut him a little slack — at least until he graduates from preschool. I loved going through his shots afterward, so I thought I’d share a few. This is the world through his four year-old eyes:
He took a whole series of flowers for me — because I’m a girl and I love flowers 🙂
I didn’t really look at the grates around the trees, but seeing this makes me appreciate their texture.
I really loved the way people reacted to him. There are a lot of photos of smiling, pointing people. It was unanimous — the kid with the camera was adorable.
I like his top-of-the-temple picture better than mine. I think it’s more interesting. His wonky angles and framing make me think I should be more creative in framing my own shots.
This foot picture was his favorite joke of the day — because what could be funnier than taking a picture of your own foot? It is a pretty cute foot 🙂
He was so earnest about every shot he took — including 15 pictures of grass and a dozen of mulch. His excitement about every little thing he took a picture of made it so much more fun.
But don’t let me mislead you into thinking he’s a novice. This kid is practically a pro! See, here’s his first shoot, way back when he was 2:
I love that face 🙂
This kid is my favorite photographer.
