My daughter the photographer

January 30, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

When my daughter chose to enter her school's Reflections contest in the photography category I couldn't have been more proud. The theme "The magic of a moment" seemed perfect for the medium. She's been running around with my old Olympus c2020, one my first digital cameras, and snapping away, I think she has quite a bit of natural ability for a third grader. Some of her photos are better then a lot I've seen from adults. This is the photo she chose to enter.

The Magic of a Moment

The Magic of a Moment

Here is what she wrote about it...

"The magic of photography is that each photo captures a moment, The rose in my picture is the last rose on the bush, on the last day before it died, in the last bit of daylight on the day. Photographers have two special hours each day. They call them the golden hour and the blue hour. The golden hour is in the morning. My rose picture was taken in the evening and that's when the blue hour is. That's how i got it to be blue. To me it's magical that this rose survived when the other ones hadn't."

All of this she came up with on her own. She made it through the school and council levels to district but didn't get further then that. Still pretty good for a third grader going up against fourth and fifth graders. My daughter is only nine years old and she's already winning photo competitions. Is that cool or what?
