If You Give a Kid a Camera

Every afternoon, nine-year-old Jaylon walks from his elementary school to The Salvation Army Cedar Crest Community Center. He says he has been coming to the center for two years.

I asked him what he likes most about going to The Salvation Army during after school hours. He said, “hanging out with his friends and shooting hoops!”

I asked Jaylon to be our guest photographer for this blog post. His assignment was to capture all the things he sees happening around him. He could also use Captain Kettle as a prop.

By the end of the session, Jaylon not only grasped how to properly hold the camera, but starting taking really good pictures. He said that he wants to be a police officer when he grows up, but I think he might have a future in photography.
