One thought on “Camera Position 165 : Forget The Gear”

  1. Shocked to hear my name.
    Recently, while teaching my computer wise grand daughter how to use a SLR I notice she was losing interest fast. Just too much information. So I just put the camera on auto and taught her a few composition basics and stopped. That worked, she is have fun with her camera and taking photos.
