I have always wanna teach photography to my 7 year old daughter. I guess as a photographer Papa, I would love to share with her my passion. Since this year we have been shooting more together. Nothing too technical. Just shoot and enjoy photography; and more importantly a great way of bonding between father and daughter.
This morning the window light coming through my bedroom was lovely. Immediately I went to pick up a X100F and started shooting. Summer did the same too! She picks up her X70 and started photographing. She even place some props and even used a mirror to bounce off some light. She learn to use a mirror because I have always used a mirror as a reflector in some of my product shoots.
In prompt to photography lesson are the best. In this precious 5 minutes, I am able to show Summer highlights, shadow and using a mirror to reflect light. Short as it may be but it certainly a precious 5 minutes to me. I am thankful in this process I am also able to document this intimate moment. Below are some shot taken by both of us. Photo 1,3 and 5 are Summer’s shot and 2,4 and 6 are shot taken by me of her taking that shot. Now you know why she call me her Paparazzi.
