Good lord. He definitely has a wonderful eye. I agree, get this child a camera for Christmas and encourage him! I'd pay for any of those shots of his to hang on my wall!  Bravo little man!

They make some cameras for kids (check out this link) that are a little less expensive than the Rollei goodie posted earlier (I WANT THAT!)

Thanks for answering the question about post production Smiley I'm still amazed at how wonderful those are given your son's age. I'd be sorely tempted to buy a couple of those if I saw them for sale.

He takes better pics that most adults I know.  Very cool.

Wow...a five-year-old did that? Those are amazing, beautiful shots. Those really look like things that you would see at a nice art gallery or on post cards. You have a very talented kid Smiley.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Wow, what a talent! I especially love #3 and #4, but they're all good shots. "A five year old could do that!" suddenly got a whole new meaning, as this 22 year old is hopeless with the camera and really wish she had your sons eye for motives. Smiley

I agree with everyone else that he really should be encouraged to keep on, and I love your album idea. Yay for crafty/artsy parents!

(And aren't digital cameras wonderful? Lets kids shoot as much as they want without it costing heaps to get the pics developed! The best way ever to discover talent at an early age.)

Wow! Looks like he has some potential. This reminds me of the time I taught my 7 y.o. sister how to take pictures, it was sort of hilarious. Most of the pictures were of things like feet and people's mid-sections. lol
Anyways, keep that camera in his reach!

Congratulations on having a talented 5 year old that can be trusted with the digital camera!  I know at least a couple gadget-y types with fancy DSLRs that know all about f-stops and exposures, etc. and who just can't grasp composition (and usually don't know they don't grasp composition) - it's awesome that he's a natural, because the rest can me learned.

Also, sounds like he already has your old camera, so why buy him one at this point?  Reduce, reuse, recycle and all that.   Kiss

I've done photography professionally on and off for 15 years.  I got my first camera when I was about 10.  It's a great way for kids to really see the world around them (even if they don't know that's what they're doing yet Wink
