Well, here goes, my first photos on here. They were both taken by my youngest son who is too young to sign up here himself.


My Mam.


Grandad & Dad.

Please feel free to comment, any advice & tips will be appreciated.

Hi Horden,

Great that your youngest son is trying his hand at portraiture. Not easy, as there is so much to think about, let alone getting the sitters to pose the way he wants. Those who practice the art are much better qualified than I to give advice so I will just restrict myself to saying I like the black and white one best. One of the joys of digital photography is that taking photos is virtually free so he can take lots of shots and then sit down with them on the computer and try and decide what works and what doesn't and, importantly, why the good ones work. 8)

If you just bend your knees a little more and aim the lens just a little higher while shooting the picture of your dad and granddad, I think you'll be pleasently surprised. :)
I think its great that your father stimulates you at such a young age, keep up the good work.
