Consider this, I have a young friend, who is not really a photographer but likes snapshooting. During community events, when I have my basics covered, I give him one of my cameras and he comes back with expressions that I cannot ever get. The girls of his age are simply comfortable with him. 5-10% keeper but I adore fixing them in post. I simply get things that I cannot get on my own. Obviously, I am not a pro photog yet (amateurs get something "better" than me).
My son (
over-crops to high-hell most of the time. I gave him my 7D (yeah, I'm that guy) set up his settings, then told him to assist me when doing a dance shoot that his mother was in.
I got at least 2 shots (out of, admittedly, many) that could only have been taken by a child photographing his mother; precious. The wife didn't see the artistic eye in it, but I sure appreciated it.
