Photography as a game

It is well known that performance sports begin at an early age.But what about photography?I ask you this because of my recent experience with my children.Concerned about the fact that my daughters (like most children today) want to use the smartphones and tablets as much as possible for simplistic games that consume time and generate frustration, I have decided together with them that I will allow them to use the devices from time to time only if they take a few photos before.Then I asked... continue reading

What's up with Waterfalls?

On a beautiful summer day I was working in my garage and Joe was standing at the end of my driveway looking down into the storm sewer. Joe is five years old and is usually very quiet. I walked down the driveway and asked him what he was looking at? He said, “I am watching the waterfall.”Just then his grandfather drove up and parked in front of Joe’s house. Joe started yelling at his grandpa not to step in the water. I am assuming that Joe said that to his grandpa because his dad told Joe not... continue reading

What's up with kids driving cars?

When my dad was two and a half years old, he and his twin brother climbed up into his dad’s car and was messing around with various knobs and levers. He found an interesting button on the dashboard and he pushed it. It ended up that this was the starter button. The car would turn over but it wouldn’t start without the key turned on but the car would move. He ended up moving the car out of the driveway and into the middle of the street.  continue reading

Making best video memories of your kids

 When your precious baby is only a few months – it’s better to find some time and take interesting and bright static pictures (the way kid becomes bigger, in colorful costumes in front of funny backgrounds, first of everything etc.) But when child begins to move – the time for video shooting definitely comes. Get your camera or smartphone always near, so you can turn it on quick and quiet.
