A few weeks ago my son, Peter, joined a group of us on a photo shoot out at the Great Salt Lake. Let me tell you, he's pretty good at livening up most any situation. I set him up with my Rebel xsi and the 24-105 lens and let him loose. It was pretty dang fun to watch him wander around and shoot the things that interested him. We finally got around to looking at his images tonight. As expected, there were plenty of out of focus shots of grasshoppers, rocks, and sticks. But, there were also some pretty decent shots. We had a good time looking through the images and picking out a handful of his favorites. He ran the mouse while I walked him through some basic adjustments in Lightroom 3. We also printed some 13x19 prints that will go on his wall. By the way, Pete is 7. Fun stuff.
These images were captured by and belong to Peter.
He used the Canon Rebel Xsi and the Canon 24-105mm f/4.0L IS lens to create them.
He wanted the tower to be right side up in this reflection shot, so he held the camera upside down. Good thinking.
He used a tripod and the remote trigger for this self-portrait.
