During camp, I volunteered to take pictures of the weekends.Â Megan came with me and we really enjoyed trying to get pictures that were more than just pictures.Â I don’t think I did very well the first weekend, though I do have a few pictures that were what I was hoping for.
The second weekend had fewer campers and I was called “Mrs. Photographer” a few times.Â I was able to talk with some of the campers, getting to know them a little. I was surprised to have a few kids ask me to take pictures of them or their groups too.
Of course, I practiced on the my kids too.Â While they knew I had the camera-they seem to think I always have a camera-I tried to get pictures while they were not paying attention to me or the camera.
I am more comfortable with taking pictures of strangers, but still need a lot of practice!
