My wee son, who is usually all about kicking a ball or wrestling rather than doing anything artsy or crafty with his poor old mum, has taken a shine to photography. Last weekend he laid claim to our old digital camera when we went to a local heritage/living history villiage. I've applied a filter, adjusted the contrast and rounded the corners but otherwise these are totally his shots. I'm thinking that for Christmas this year I'll compile his photos into books that he can give as gifts to family and friends.

On to the photos...

I'm addicted to DDR. I need a 12-step program.

Good grief, he takes better pictures than I do, and I'm an adult and have taken a photography class (granted, I didn't really pay close attention...).

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

I really like those! I love that it's at his perspective and very well done. I like that you're planning on making an album for everyone. Tell him he's done a wonderful job!

I'm hitting 'this rocks'! Your child has got such a good eye. If he is this good now I wonder what he will be like in a few years time. And I think your idea for presents is brilliant. Maybe you could use his Photos for cards too. Well done to him.

Too many ideas, not enough funds!

Great composition! Your son must be a natural. I hope he continues being interested in photography because these are wonderful.

May I ask what filter you used? And what program did you use as well? I love the rounded corners and the vignette. Great job on the post production Smiley

I opened up a flickr account for his pics and used the picnik editing tools. I used the cross process filter, vinette and then rounded the corners. I'm a graphic designer by trade and usually use photoshop but I wanted something that he could use that was pretty simple if he ever wants to play around with his own images.

I love when children get their hands on cameras! These are really good. I like letting my girls "play" (as they say) with my digital too, it's nice to see the world from their perspective.

Seriousy, get him a camera for christmas.
You should encourage him in this. He has an eye for this.
