Photography Challenge for Kids

"Mom, can I borrow your phone for a minute?"

"What for?"

"I want to take a picture."

"Sure."

And off five year old K runs, only to return a few minutes later to show me his latest photograph: a picture of the words Angry Birds written all by himself on the whiteboard in his bedroom. He is so proud, not only of his written words, but of his photo. He is 100% happy in this moment. As am I.

His interest in photography has really grown over the past two years and he has truly captured some amazing photos of me, which, if you are a mom, then you too probably have few pictures that include you in the shot.

Since around here, we chose to follow our children's leads and interests, I came up with a list of 30 photography prompts for kids so that K could continue to practice his latest passion.

30 Photography Prompts for Kids

While K is happy to take photos with just my phone or iPod, he is mostly interested in shooting with my DSLR camera. Sometimes when we are doing activities for the blog, he stops playing, grabs my camera, and asks to take some action shots of me playing too. 

Future blogger, perhaps?

The point is he is happy to take photos using whatever device he can get his hands on. So if your kids are starting to show an interest in photography too, then use a camera that you are comfortable giving your children, whether it is a smartphone, a point and shoot, a DSLR, or something else.
