He composed them, he snapped them, he deleted the ones he didn't like.
Beautiful, he looks like he might be a natural. Christmas give him a really nice camera and find someone (if you can't) who will work with them...Let him get the 'photo'cards at a craft store and sell them or they will make great gifts to family and friens... Be sure to let him write on the back, "org. photograph by____"
Encourage with all my heart. They are beautiful pictures.
Wow!!! As QB mentioned, try to give him access to proper tools and guidance. Nurture but don't push.
He's a very talented young man. You should keep a dated scrapbook of his work.
I bought him a digital camera for his birthday last month--an HP 4.1mp. Last night we took a walk in the field and he snapped away and I just followed him, except for the time he caught me in a personal moment...long day. At one point, he pointed the camera at the sky to take a picture of it, and my "adultness" told me to tell him not to waste a picture. But I didn't, and here's what he got:
Absolutely encourage it, praise it, introduce him to Ansel Adams work...beautiful photography!!
Six years old? Wowww!
I'd think he has a good eye, myself.
At 6 he's got a better eye than some people EVER develop. I think I'd try to find that young lad a mentor. I agree with the "don't push" but nurture. What a gift!
Excellent Like the others have said, encourage, nurture, but don't push. With a digital camera you can't waste film so let him have at it when the chores are done. I'd also second the recommendation to introduce to other landscape photographers like Ansel Adams
The color isn't working on my computer....
You must be picking up a glare from all that grey in your beard, lol.
"Do you have space for a dark room when he is older?"
Darkroom? With a digital camera?
And wasting pictures? With a digital camera?
Amazing pictures! Wow... I'd buy those.
I have a dear friend who is a photo journalist. He takes pictures for all the heaviy wieght and makes 6 figures doing it. Your son is a natural. I would definately nurture that talent. Those pictures are extrodinary.
im simply speachless....please save all of this for him......all these gorgeous pics..and nurture nurture nurture....wow
They are black and white on my screen too, but I assumed they were supposed to be. I love black and whites. The detail is always so much more...........I don't know....detailed?
I understand what it's like to have a talented kid, my DD (11) is an artist. There is a fine line between encouraging and pushing. Give him what he needs to do his art, encourage when he shows it to you and show it off as much as you can. If you can enter some of his stuff in a contest I've found that a few awards under the belt can really boost confidence.
