This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Jenny!
John Crippen’s book, Cameras for Kids: Fun and Inexpensive Projects for the Little Photographer, is full of information for a budding photographer. The book explains common camera settings and basic lighting and composition. It includes ten projects for photographers to practice their skills on, as well as five photo craft ideas. The book is written using simple language, and I do think kids as young as seven (the lower end of the suggested age range) will enjoy the book. It is clearly organized, and I consider the range of information projects diverse enough for any child photographer to learn from the book. I do wish the book had been edited more carefully; it included a number of typos and switched between addressing parents and children, sometimes without clear reasons for the change. I recommend the book to anyone who can overlook these flaws.
I was provided a copy of this book to review, as well as a second copy for a giveaway. This is a worldwide giveaway; anyone with a valid postal and email address can enter. Just leave me a comment sharing your favorite photography tip, or something you learned from the Cameras for Kids website. You can also get entries for following this blog, and for subscribing by email. Just leave a separate comment for each one, and make sure that your comments include a valid email address so that I can contact you if you win. I will accept entries until 9am EDT May 10th, when a winner will be chosen using random.org.
