Great, simple tips for sharing photography

Great, simple tips for sharing a love of photography (even the technical aspects) with beginners. Varina and Jay Patel are two well know photographers that I have followed for several years on Google+. I love how in this article they find a way to share photography with their 13 year old in a way that is not at all difficult or complicated to understand. The moral of the story is that the technical aspects of manual photography does not have to be scary or difficult. I hope that in #GC3400 I have the opportunity to share that with @ClemsonGC students as they begin to find their way around manual mode on their DSLRs.

What is our philosophy to teach kids photography?….Simple hand them the camera don’t tell them there is a auto more. The results from this approach are wonderful. Now only if we can get adults to forget that there is something other than the manual mode.
