Stitched shot taken in the kids area of GoMA. Pedro had relinquished his dSLR to Rachel and was explaining the finer points of camera grip, while Ana took an opportunity to capture the moment.

    LOL, seems like I'm remonstrating with Pedro, but that wasn't the case - I was absolutely thrilled he lent it to me :) Any other offers of loans will be greatly appreciated :)

    hehehe indeed Brian :)

    This might become a regular Meetup event Rachel, could be interesting to see what you come up with when using other peoples cameras.

    I guess my 6 year old son is spoilt then - I taught him how to hold an SLR about a year ago. We're starting with how to hold it and what the shutter release does; I don't think he'll be quite ready to learn about things like aperture, DOF, focus, shutter speed, motion blur, exposure, artificial lighting, film speed/ISO, white balance, colour tints, post-processing, etc. for a little while. Maybe next year... :)

    who's not to let go? the owner of the camera to the person who wants to borrow it? lol!! :-D

    - how exciting that he's learning so young! he'll be amazing by the time he's just ten years old. :-)

    My children aren't allowed to touch the dSLR. Kara's been allowed to use the S2IS, and has a little Kodak of her own.

    - smiley, my three year old, is allowed to use my old, mostly broken (you can barely see anything in the lcd screen) sony. i hope he learns something about photography through using it. :-)

    Seen in my recent comments. (?)
