Young Parents (Singapore) - - THE PLAY ISSUE -

There’s no doubt that be­ing a pi­lot and a reghter are among the most cov­eted “jobs” at Kidzania theme park, but don’t over­look the chance to be a pho­to­jour­nal­ist.

Gen­tly nudge your child in the di­rec­tion of the Canon Imag­ing Academy, lo­cated op­po­site KFC. He will be thrilled to be en­trusted with a pro­fes­sional cam­era that Daddy might not even al­low him to touch at home.

With a Canon EOS 750D DSLR slung around his neck, your child learns how to change the shut­ter speed when the sub­ject is mov­ing, as well as the aper­ture to con­trol depth of eld. The trainer will also teach the im­por­tance of ap­ply­ing the rule-of-thirds as your child frames and ad­justs the key sub­jects.

Now it’s time to put knowl­edge into prac­tice. Your child gets to go on an as­sign­ment to cap­ture pic­tures around the theme park un­der the trainer’s su­per­vi­sion. This 20-minute crash course is de­signed to in­spire kids as young as four years old with pho­tog­ra­phy.

At the end of it, your child will even re­ceive a glossy certicate, declar­ing him a “certied pho­tog­ra­pher” by Canon. Can you beat that, Daddy?

HOW MUCH From $25 to $58, de­pend­ing on age.
