SHE'S GOT THE "EYE"

Well, at least to me, she does.

My oldest daughter loves to take pictures, and honestly, I think she takes better ones than I do!

I'm thinking I should give her a DSLR, and I keep the point and shoot!

She loves taking close ups, and I trip out on how well her pictures come out (with the angles and all).

Here are more random pictures she took a few days ago (with a point & shoot). I can imagine how much better they will be with a DSLR.

There are so many of you wonderful photographers out there. Do you have any beginners advice for her (and me too)?

What beautiful photographs.

I think she will have to give me tips!!!

Buckeroomama said...

Oh, she definitely has an eye for great photos.

Aren't you glad we have digital photography these days? Imagine the money saved from having to buy and develop film. :)

I agree with you... she certainly does have it!

Wonderful photos! I love her choices of subject matter...I do really like the doorbell one!

Blessings & Aloha!
(& oh, please let me know if you post about the Happy award, so I am sure to come see your 10 happy things list...I try to keep up with my blog reading, but sometimes get soooo far behind! And I love reading lists like these :o)

Mommy, I'm Home said...

Wow! Yes, she does have the eye. Maybe she should be doing my Project 365...

Those are great! I love the sidewalk chalk pic! Great job!

Looks like you a natural photgrapher on your hands! :) I know the pioneer woman has some great tips in her photo site. Our rec. center in out little town is offering a camera/photo course so I am thinking that a nice big city would have some great beginner classes somewhere for not to much money. I think it is wonderful you want to encourage her in this! :)

I love the doorbell one and the chalk one! She is good:) I have no advice except practice, practice, practice! And maybe take a class. I am starting a four week photo class in March!

Lorrie said...

What great pictures. I love the doorbell, the chalk, the bird of paradise. She should take a college class in the summer if there is enough time. She's a natural. Also a book on composition would probably do the trip too. Blessings.

Amanda said...

WOW! I think you are right! Her perspective is unique and insightful and beautiful!! What talent for such a young lady!!

Blessings-

Nice...looks like a real talent blooming! I love to tak photos of flowers up close as well, she shows a very good eye for intersting things (love the doorbell and chalk)

Muthering Heights said...

So tell me...are any of your family members NOT talented??? They are all amazing!!! :)

Susie said...

I think she does need her own camera, Mom:-)

JamericanSpice said...

Wow. I agree. She has got the eye. These are so bold and the angles just right!

LifeAtTheCircus.com said...

You are right... She has a great eye! Maybe the 2 of you could take a photography class at a local comm college. Could be a fun mom/ daughter bonding time!

Debra Kaye said...

My friend, thank you for your encouragement and kind words. Mainly, thank you for your prayers. I need them so.

She does have an eye. Great shots. I love the doorbell shot too. Very cool.

Crystal said...

These are great!!! WOW!!

mama's smitten said...

Looks like she's on to something!And how cool , you can enjoy this together!

Veronica Lee said...

Great talent runs in your family, Alicia!

Cathy said...

She's doing very well, Alicia! My daughter is a budding photographer, too. I bought her a new camera for Christmas and am amazed at what she is able to do.

Keep encouraging her and providing her with opportunities to develop her creativity. She will soar! =)

danette said...

Those are great! I especially love the flowers and the chalk. She definitely has natural talent :).

Life with Kaishon said...

They are GREAT Alicia! Wow. I would say this, let her rock that point and shoot. There are so many ways you can take good pictures with them. When you feel like she has maxed that out and learned everything she can about that then it is time to move on. I kept my point and shoot for 3 years just learning. I am a big fan of learning to use what you have and being resourceful.

I think she is doing GREAT! I wonder if you could set up a blog for her and let her participate in I Heart Faces every week. If she has some assignments that can only make her better. : )

There is definitely good composition and creativity in these shots. :) Is she excited about photography?

Lisa said...
