"I want to cheese it, Daddy"

3yrs old and obsessed with cameras already. I'm looking forward to developing his roll of TMax tomorrow (he let me get 4 frames out of the roll)

I understand what is happening here Jim, today I ordered a point and shoot for my eldest son's fourth birthday present. In the last few weeks he has been using anything he can lay his hands on to take photos with - my K-7, our compact camera and my wife's and my phones.

Yup, samski, he has been camera crazy pretty much since he could walk. We got him one of those Discovery digital cameras and he wants nothing to do with it, but any of mine or the wife's P&S or even my BlackBerry and he starts twitching.

Thanks, Barnster. He really took to it naturally. All I've done is make the camera accessible, and safe, for him and offered help and encouragement when he shows interest.

Here's another one from yesterday. I put a roll of Ultramax 800 in after the TMax and he took over with the K20D.

And a sample of his work (I rotated the camera vertical for him, he did the rest):

How wonderful your son is so enthusiastic about photography and that you're encouraging him. Great shots, too. I hope you show us some more of his photos.
