My daughter, Betsy, has got right back into her love of photography lately, and I have to admit I have been enjoying a dabble too. I upgraded my cheap point and shoot for a Nikon 1 a couple of months back – too scared to go for a full DSLR. Initially we had to share, but she has now splashed out on a proper Canon DSLR with some money she was left by my grandfather.
She is experimenting with all sorts of techniques, and it is usual to find the house strewn with props, or huge sheets of white paper pegged to the washing line for her latest shoot. Yesterday she was playing with lights and silver foil, looking to create a bokeh effect for some still life shots – and well, I interfered by joining in the fun too. Note to the teen: If you don’t want your Mum joining in, do it in your room not in the lounge!! Her shots are gorgeous and you can see them on her blog, Peppermint Swirls! But for now, here are mine….
Not bad for an idiot I thought!! Let me know if you have any ideas for having fun with photography that we can try out,
