Before taking any picture, you should first understand how the camera works. Kids should be sure to have their parents go through the basic functions like zoom, flash, and focus. If it's a digital camera, they may need to know basic functions like how to save and delete pictures , how to change the battery, how to back up pictures, etc. Also, parents should show kids the basics for taking care of the camera and protecting the lens. Scratches on a lens can ruin the camera and whole sets of pictures.
