Photography Girl

Following in the footsteps of her mother, A has recently taken up photography in school and I think she's really enjoying it. She does a very nice job (must be an inherited thing) and I think developing a good eye with a camera can extend into other arenas, including filmmaking. She already has a fair amount of experience with video making and I think taking still pictures is a good complement. The class also allows her to continue taking classes with one of her favorite teachers, KW. I think that's her name.

Either way, she's doing a nice job of taking pics, and I think she has a good eye, just like her mom. She's also learning the lost art of film developing, which nobody does anymore because now everything is digital. This makes it hard to find a facility where she can develop and print pics, but finding the actual film is a challenge, as well. Fortunately the school has a dark room and print film available to the students. The downside is that she can only do the work during school time, which is coming to an end with summer on the horizon. What's also nice about it is that she has inherited my old film camera, which was a pretty nice camera when I got it about 15 years ago. Now it's obsolete, but for her purposes it works just fine. Plus, she can call it her own.

Of course she's also doing a lot of work with digital cameras, taking the pics and tweaking them with various editing programs. It's pretty cool stuff, and I think it's something she can do for years to come, either as a hobby or something more, whatever that may be.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to vanilla_jo for the pic.
