The summer holidays are here!

The summer holidays are here! And what better way to entertain the little tykes than a day out learning the art of photography? It’s one thing to teach the knack of the proper use of aperture, shutter speed and ISO, but the choice of lens also opens up a world of exciting ideas.

On sunny summer walks, a macro lens will open up a whole new world to little ones and allow them to explore the miniature world of flowers, bugs and creepy crawlies, which is always fun, even without a macro lens!

If the kiddies are interested in birds and animals then a long zoom lens will let them get up-close to the critters and capture images they’ll be really proud of. Go for a lens with a smaller aperture to keep size and weight down.

Alternatively, why not let their imaginations run wild with a super wide-angle or even a fisheye lens? They’ll produce images with other-worldly perspectives and it’s sure to spark an interest in photography!

Lastly, aperture can be great fun to play with, especially if the kids are used to simple phone snaps. Playing with a shallow depth of field can turn an everyday object like a pebble on the beach or a hermit crab shell into a real frame-worthy image.

Whatever you decide to hire for your holiday jaunts, you can be sure we’ll have an option that’s fun for all the family!
