Click! If kids read this book, it's the sound of a perfect photo being taken. If not, it's pictures of friends without heads, a dog's tail without the dog, red eyes, and a lot of photos out of focus. With the easy-to-use cameras that are around today, every child can take fantastic photographs. Before starting, you should cheek out this exciting beginner's guide. It goes one step at a time through the very basics of photography, from choosing the eight camera to understanding and knowing when to use your flash. You can make the most of your skills by trying your hand at some of the projects, and by getting ideas for future "shots". The focus is on a simple compact camera, but you'll be amazed at the incredible things you'll be able to do with it. Handy checklists make sure to highlight the important points, all shown by cartoon character Talbot Fox and his series of Talbot's Tips. Start with finding out all the different types of camera and how they work. Then go on to film, and how to load and unload it. When you're ready to take a picture, tips on centering and flashes will make sure your pictures are perfect. Bonus: Learn how to use filters to turn the sky purple, the grass blue, and your parents yellow. By the time you're through, you'll be coming up with all sorts of cool compositions!
