My little sister got to run camera for the first time at our Church’s Christmas service tonight. Naturally she was thrilled at being “Camera Two”, and taking orders over headset.
Learning by diving into to something is a family habit I guess. I ran the lighting board on my first paid show at the age of twelve, and John ran his first paid show on the spot light at the age of seven. No one batted an eye when we turned around and saw Elizabeth sitting behind a camera, we just waved and went off to find a seat. I love it that Dad trusted us with such stuff, and is willing to “hand us the keys” and then walk off and let us be responsible for whatever.
