I have always let First Mate take photos with my iPhone. He messes around with the various filters and I don't think anything of it until I download the photos later and discover the ones he saved.
These were all taken by him from the backseat of the car, while going home after our Las Vegas family trip. Somewhere between Vegas and Los Angeles.
He has always been interested in taking photos. I shared his first photos when he was two from the kiddy camera he got as a gift. He has continued to show an interest so I'm thinking it is time to upgrade him to a "real" digital camera soon.
Living in a time with digital photography is so much fun, isn't it? How different from when we were kids! I don't think my parents were handing me their film camera at age two and letting me play around. Getting film developed was such a luxury, I don't think many kids were allowed to take photos until they were much older back then. The first photos I ever took were with a Polaroid camera and they were of my cat, Gypsy. I think I was seven or eight.
What about in your family? Are your kids interested in photography? (And any cheapish digital camera suggestions welcome, too.)
