Name: Editor Do you think photography is a good hobby for children? Do you think it has any special lessons to teach your child? Would you buy a camera for your child?

Photography is an ideal hobby for kids. Not only do they learn something but parents get an idea of their children' s interests through the photos they click.

Nice article. The idea of introducing children when they are very young to photography ( or any other thing) seems to make sense. Also, the point about allowing them to explore the medium and make mistakes to learn is quite valid. Such an effort leads to true learning. On the other hand, learning to follow a set of rules to the tee, when you have no idea why they are there is no learning at all.

One would think that digital is made for children and beginners to photography. But apart from the cost (which is not really a disadvantage) there is one main shortcoming in a digital camera. Modern technology has made it so easy to click a good picture - the camera is doing almost everything for you apart from the clicking - that people who start with digital never pick up the basics of photography and therefore never develop the potential to optimally utilise the opoortunties that the digital camera gives. THis is ironical, but quit true.

You are absolutely right. I am a hobby photgrapher who learnt my art the hard way. When I was growing up, there were only manual cameras. You couldn´ t afford to shoot unless you were sure of your settings.

While i still own my good film cameras, i have also recently bought a prosumer digital camera. I was thinking of getting my kids (ages 9 1/2 and 11) one of those small digital cameras. Your post has caused me to change my mind and i will give them one of my own (treasured) manual cameras instead. When they master this they can get the digital.

I disagree with this statement. For one it depends on the camera and the setting the person tries to use his camera in. Personally pro sumer cameras on manual settings will definitely let people learn how to use a camera

Subject:  My first Camera
I remember my first camera all those years ago. Was a rectangular Kodak camera which used to take 110 film. Used to be hard to get that film and harder to develop. Should we give our children a digital camera to start off with or go for a film camera? Any brands that are kid friendly that anyone can suggest?

I think digital is a good idea. There are quite a few options available. I would suggest Fisher Price kids cameras. They are available on Amazon I think this was a well written article. To prove a point theres even a community on kids with cameras, pretty easy to find on the internet which truly highlights the empowerment a camera can be for a kid.

Having being exposed to photography in early childhood, i can vouch for its usefullness in helping children develop.

I personally was shy and an introvert by nature who also grew up to be rather unsure and indecisive. However, photography helped me find myself, got me applause and recognition in school and later college, which gave me courage and also gave me a great career which today gives me my bread and butter too. Thanks for the article

RE:Reading Newspapers
How old is your kid as it depends on the age of the child and one cannot force a five year old to read the newspaper so if your child is above ten years then yes you should ask him or her to read the newspaper daily.... - Aditi [View Message]
RE:Reading Newspapers
I think you should not force a child to read a newspaper as this is not necessary at all and one must avoid it so please do not force your child and make sure you let enjoy your child in what he is happy in doing.... - Anju [View Message]
