Whether your child is using the camera on a cell phone, a digital camera, or another camera-capable device, digital photography provides opportunities for creativity while practicing valuable skills. Due to the ever-increasing simplicity of digital cameras and photo apps, any child who can “point and click” can become a great digital photographer. Cameras come in a range of models, each with different capabilities and features. There are options for young children, casual users and professional photographers alike, making the use of digital photography suitable for children ages 4 and up.
Developing a systematic approach for setting and achieving goals.
In order to take a great photo, photographers need to plan out where they will position the camera, what lighting they need, and all the other little techniques that help to make a photo beautiful.
Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.
Digital photography offers countless features that help make each photo unique. With all of these options, your child can take multiple photos of the same subject with each photo having a completely unique look and feel.
Arranging and coordinating materials in order to complete a task.
Digital photography allows users to take more images than film cameras allow. As a result, your child will need to keep her photos organized in folders or other organizational tools.
Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings.
Digital photography will allow your child to explore her interests, develop a passion for art, and think critically about her place in the world around her. Through looking at her photos, she may discover new things that interest her, and make valuable observations about herself and the aspects of the world around her that she is photographing.
