littleSIDEKLICK begins

Finally I have my mom's old camera. We started taking pictures together today. I have always wanted to be behind the camera as well as being a model. 

This is my first picture on the D200. We will learn about editing later. I am using to make the pictures fit on my blog. Right now editing is a bit too much and I just want to take pictures.
I was taking pictures of Kieran when Clover came along and hung her toy rabbit over the couch. I told Kieran to not smile. 

Later on I took pictures of Clover and her doll in the same spot as the first photo of Kieran. I learned that the light is great there in the morning and the afternoon. We are starting to learn about how to hold the camera and light. I could see when the photos were too dark or too bright from looking at the screen on the camera and then my mom would tell me what I could do to fix the photo. Most of that I did not understand, but she said we will go over all that later on and that this is about seeing what I see.

I loved being the boss.
There are more posts coming to show you what I am learning and to maybe help other kids learn with their moms. The world looks different to kids is what my mom and I are finding out.

My mom and I want you join our project. You can join the facebook page (I can't because I can't have a facebook yet) and tag (#littleSIDEKLICK) on Instagram. We are working on lots of things besides just the blog posts, but the best part is that I get to work on it with my mom.

I can't wait to see your photos and meet the other littleSIDEKLICKs!

Gemma is shooting with a Nikon D200 and Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 lens. All shots here are manual settings, but auto white step at a time. - R

Gemma, these are great!!! I especially love the one of Kieran! I love the juxtaposition of his serious face next to the silly bunny :)
