Ross and I have been experimenting with action shots. He likes coming up with "moves," and I'll ask him to repeat the trick a few times, so that I can shoot from different angles.
Last night I realized that this is a collaboration. My son has definite opinions about what will look cool, and about which shots came out the best. If I think a trick isn't going to be interesting, I may suggest that he do it differently, or I'll try to find a better camera angle to see if I can make it better. There's a give-and-take between us, and we're learning to listen to each other's opinions. It's much more interesting than "mom knows best."
Here are some of his park antics.
