It's never too early to get started with photography, and that's why photographer Timothy Jones gave his 19-month-old son an old Canon G12 to play around with. "He wandered round the house and garden snapping away saying 'cheese' at everything. He even managed to switch the settings to 'sepia' at one point. I'm guessing he was feeling a bit pretentious and wanted to change the style of his shots. He looks through the viewfinder as well rather than use the LCD screen on the back. After he had finished and started to press all the buttons to see what they did I whacked the memory card in the MacBook and had a look at the pics," said Mr. Jones.
