Yesterday I took my 10 year old granddaughter, Kayla, to a nearby stream filled with Canada Geese and ducks and showed her how to use my Nikon Z50 with the 16-50mm lens. I set it at 50mm, 1/50sec, aperture wide open, auto iso, and back button focusing. She had no problems getting sharp images from the start. Her compositions improved during the stay and only had a couple of questions for me. I was using my D850 with the Nikon 70-300mm lens. Frequently, she wanted to compare shots - we both liked hers as well or better! This was her first time out!
I need to up my game to keep face!
Here's a sample of her shots.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!

It looks like she has an "eye" for composition.

At first glance I thought the first shot was going to be your complaint on trash in the river. After a closer look I realized it was the leaves and the white rocks that look like plastic bags. Funny how your mind plays tricks on you until you realize first impressions are completely different than reality. Something to remember. All shots are good. I like the one with the bridge the most.

Thanks for viewing and commenting.
It's difficult to find something to do with young children especially in colder weather. I'm so glad that she took to photography - we'll be going out again!

Good stuff! You might be ahead now, Elliott, but with this start it is only a matter of time (and isn't this what we wish for our family?). Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

You're consolation should be she at least used your camera. The important question: What did she think?

In the words of a ten year old, “this little camera is so cute”. She really enjoyed doing this together - until her fingers became too cold and then it was time to go out for a treat.
