Hello Kitty {not the cartoon character}

Photo Taken by my Inspiring {16 yr. old} Photographer Daughter

I taught my oldest daughter recently how to use my SLR camera.  I have learned over the years, if you can teach a subject to someone, it helps reinforce the knowledge you are teaching.  {This experience humbled me to the realization I am not a very good teacher}  I went over the basics of aperture, shutter speed and focal length.  Seriously, I think by the end of my mini lesson, we were both confused…sigh…as Pooh would say, “Oh bother.”

Finally, I just told her to take the camera and shoot away.  Practice is always the best way to learn.

She went outside and look at this shot!  This was the last one {of many} she took of Daisy, our very sweet cat.  I am very impressed!  The only thing I did was change it to black & white; no need to sharpen the image or anything!  I have to be a bragging Mom for a bit.  I am so excited for her!  Honestly, I was a tad bit worried she might change her decision to be a photographer.

She is currently looking through photographs for a High School Photography contest.  Do you think she should enter this one?
