In May this year we proudly teamed up with uFlourish fairs as media partners. I gave a camera to my 6 year old to be a photo blogger for the day. This is what she saw.
This generation of children are used to being photographed and recorded on a daily basis by family and friends. So it’s natural they should be keen to be on the other side of the camera. I gave Lulu an old Panasonic compact with a broken lens cover but still takes perfectly decent shots.
I didn’t have to give her much instruction. Just where the button to capture the picture is and away she went. I let her roam freely, snapping whatever she felt like it. At a busy baby fair, not principally aimed at her age group, I was curious to see what she picked out as interesting to photograph. As it turns out, the kids weren’t really that interested in the stands…what a surprise!
The kids’ desire to take photos and videos themselves raises questions about their privacy. What do really young kids understand about their privacy? I now ask Lulu if I can share a photo or video of her to my Facebook friends and explain who can see it. And in the future if she asks me to take pictures down, I will.
