Family Photos

These conversation ideas can help give kids an appreciation of composition and purpose in photographs.

When revisiting old photos, notice composition. Ask if they can find some that best capture a brother or sister or a friend’s real spirit. Discuss the advantages and otherwise of the posed vs free form. The advantages of super close ups vs full figure.

Put them in charge of capturing pictures at an outing. Review & discuss.

Consider giving them a specific project – perhaps for the holidays. Or supporting a family newspaper.
