Daily Creative Photography for kids week three
The hope in that each of these ideas will add a little creativity into your child’s day.
You should be able to fit then in between home schooling and working from home.
During the week we’ll be using some skills already learnt and utilising some of the images already taken.
Each week block has 5 different ideas for you to try. You could do all the ideas over a single day or a weekend if you wish. What is important is that it is easy to fit into your daily life.
All of the projects can be done whilst on lockdown and fit into government guidelines.
What age children is this appropriate for?
All of these Creative Photography for kids ideas have been developed and tested with my 5 (and a half) year old daughter during lockdown. If they can understand the basic concepts and have the ability to press the shutter button on your phone’s camera then they are old enough. There’s no upper age limit as this program is certainly appropriate for adults.
What equipment do I need to use?
For many of the tasks all you need is a smartphone. Some of the task might require certain apps but we will always try and find cheap or free versions.

Photographing Toys – Tiger Photoshoot
This is our first big photoshoot so using objects that are readily available just makes things easier. If you don’t have a zoo with a multitude of toy tigers then don’t worry, any toy that that stand and be posed works well for this project.

Double exposure Photography
This is a fun special effect which almost as old as photography itself. Double exposure photography can be done with a simple iPhone or if you have one, an instant print camera.
