AIRLINERS.NET CREW PHOTO SCREENER
My son is now 11. But his first photo was taken when he was 5. He "likes" going to the airport with his other "kid" (aka Daddy) but doesn't love it....trying not to push him into the hobby, hoping that he will find his own way. But with so many other distractions in today's world, it's going to be a challenge.

Quoting dvincent (Reply 11): John's son was probably six years old when he had his first shot accepted in 2008. He's a good kid!
Thanks, Dan! We think so, too.
Stephen was born in 2001 and is 8 now. He still has a few shots that need editing/uploading, so hopefully he'll have a few more on here in short time. He has a steady hand and can zoom in tight on subjects without chopping off the edges. I help with the editing, but for the shots themselves he's on his own as I'm usually busy taking pictures of my own! Since I bought a 400mm lens recently he'll have greater access to my old 300mm.
Of course, these days he's far more interested in video games than aircraft photography, but we get him out every once in a while.

Does "having a shot accepted" include the editing?
In my mind, editing a photograph is at least 50% of the complete process, if not more. Or maybe it's just because I'm a lousy photographer to begin with

Quoting andyhunt (Reply 21): Editing is part of the uploading process, but it does not matter who edits the picture, what is key is who clicked the camera to get the frame. IMHO anyway!
True, but I know an excellent photographer from NZ who could not get a single picture accepted here because he wasn't able to edit them to the A.net requirements. I absolutely marveled at the photos on his website, but none of them ever made it here, no matter how many times he tried. So it seems that sometimes editing is much more than 50% of "having a shot accepted". If you can't edit them (or find someone to do it for you for that matter) - forget it...
