Assault by compact camera; 24 Mar 2012.

At a party recently, our little friend – now aged three – got hold of her dad’s camera and started taking flash pictures of me.  At which point, still being quite a child myself, I started pretending that each of her camera’s flashes was almost knocking me off my chair – which she loved and found hilarious.

So here she is, simply delightful – and maybe one of tomorrow’s photographic movers and shakers.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Good for you! Super! 🙂


  2. You caught some really decisive-moment images. She is so intent in the second shot and so obviously pleased with her results in the third. These are great!

    She was, as you reported, already moving and shaking you, and I’d say that’s a great start. Love it when they start young. I remember my first Kodak Brownie. I went around snapping at everything I liked, even when there was no film (VP 127, as I recall) in the camera! I can still feel it in my hands and hear/feel the click of the shutter.

      I know just what you mean in your final sentence – I feel the same about an Olympus OM-1 that I used a lot in Kenya. The viewfinder is rather mouldy now, but the shutter still works, and its just a delight to hold the camera, squeeze the trigger, and hear the very soft click that the OM-1 was famous for.

This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
