About the Book
In the age of smartphones and selfies, why not learn from the pros how to take great photos to share with friends and family! Here's a fun, fact-filled, kid-friendly guide that is jam-packed with all the essentials for budding photographers. From how to set up a shot and stage the lighting and from the best software to short assignments, you'll learn all the important photographic concepts and basics of equipment, lighting aperture, lenses, depth of field, and more. This wide-ranging book also has sections devoted to composition and photographing different subjects (animals, people, sports, landscapes). Before and after shots offer visual explanations while tips and photographs from National Geographic photographers are featured throughout, making this the best photography guide out there today for children (and adult beginners too!).

My Take on the Book
I loved how this book really walked young photographers step-by-step through the process of taking better pictures and provided tricks and tons of tips for becoming a stronger photographer in the end. My daughter has been taking more pictures lately and I gave this to her. She loved it. She read it very quickly and found that she was practicing what the book was preaching along the way. I have noticed a marked increase in the quality of her pictures and I have to say that I believe that it is because of this new instruction. Well written and great instruction. Filled with amazing images, the reader will come back again and again to reflect on the resources presented and will continue to learn from it far into the future!
