My Son Is NOT Afraid of The Camera...

Imagine that.

My son, Wyatt, has no fear of the camera. Either operating it or being the subject of photographic composition.

I recently bought a small device to complement my camera arsenal called a remote shutter release. At a cost of 10 dollars I can not believe I did not buy it earlier and I can't see how I lived without it!

Basically, this little black remote control has one button and it makes the camera take pictures while you prance in front of the lens. Or rather pose in front of the lens.

Wyatt has become quite professional at setting up a tripod. And using the camera remote.

And taking photos of himself for his own personal entertainment.

This morning, while I did dishes and made breakfast Wyatt occupied himself with my photography equipment. And I truly was not paying the slightest attention to WHAT images he was capturing.

This afternoon, when I skimmed through the photos on the one inch view frame of the camera, I sputtered in delight.

He had obviously shot some real winners.

Here is the reason you should let your kids play with your camera . . .



I'm so proud of my little budding photographer. I think a career in entertainment may be in his future. Bwahhaahaaaa......

Cancel your cable TV,you don't need it any more ! Wyatt will be perfect entertainment for you all instead!

When my son was little and would act goofy I would tell him that was going to come in mighty handy when he went to Clown College!

Wait till he starts making documentaries of life on your ranch/farm/compound, or when he asks you for a computer to start splicing shots together...oh I see much more entertainment in yore future!

You're so lucky. When my little brother ransacked the family camera we found a whole roll of nose picking pictures.
