Alora's mom is a professional photographer. She often goes to different events to make pictures that later will be used in magazines and different social media profiles. Alora thought it is an amazing thing to do because her mom had a chance to attend world-class events and show them to others through her camera lens.

One day, Alora asked if her mom could teach her how to make professional pictures.
"Ok, Alora, but remember, it is not an easy thing to do."
"I know,"
"So, the first thing you need to do is to find a place that is interesting and beautiful."
"Ok,"
"Then, you need to set up your camera."

Alora's mom showed her how to set up the camera and took a picture of her.
"See how the light creates a shadow on your face? That's why it is important for the light to illuminate your face."
Alora then set up the camera in different positions before deciding which one she likes the best. She also learned about different camera settings like aperture and shutter speed which are important for making good pictures.

Later, Alora and her mom went to a park. Alora thought it was a nice place to take pictures because there is an interesting tree casting long shadows. Alora's mom helped her put the camera in the right position and told her how to make sure she has enough light.
"Make sure you change the shutter speed depending on the amount of light you have," said Alora's mom. "Remember, this will make your pictures brighter or darker."
Alora then took a picture of her mom with the camera settings she had just learned about.

"I want to take more pictures," said Alora. "Can I use all your filters?"
"Sure, go ahead," replied Alora's mom.
After Alora and her mom took a bunch of pictures, they looked at the pictures one by one.
"I think this is my favorite picture," said Alora, pointing to a picture of her mom.
"It's my favorite too."

The next day, Alora said goodbye to her mom before heading to school. She was eager to show her friends the pictures she took.
Alora's friends were very impressed with all the pictures. "Wow," said one of her friends. "You're good at this."
"I want to be a professional photographer when I grow up.", Alora replied proudly.
Alora was happy that her friends liked her pictures and she was eager to share the news with her mom.

"You took more pictures?" asked her mom when Alora came back from school.
"Not this time," laughed Alora. "I just wanted to tell you how my friends feel about my pictures."
Alora and her mom agreed that it was great that Alora's friends liked the pictures and that they would probably continue to take more of them together.

The next day, Alora's mom showed Alora's pictures to her friends at work.
"Do you see how happy she was?" said Alora's mom. "She didn't just take the photos for herself. She took them to share with her friends and she was so happy when they liked them."
"I'm so proud of my daughter".

The following weekend, Alora's mom was going to be a photographer at a wedding ceremony and she wanted Alora to come with her to see how it's done. On the way there, Alora was excited. She took lots of pictures of flowers and other things to remember the day.
When they got there, Alora's mom let her take pictures of the bride. The bride looked so beautiful in her dress, and she was very happy.
Then, Alora's mom took some more pictures of the bride with friends and family. It was a beautiful ceremony and Alora loved being there with her mom!

After the ceremony, Alora's mom took some pictures of the people waiting to hug the bride. When it was Alora's turn, she got a big hug from the bride, and then she got a big hug from her mom.

On the way home, Alora saw that she had taken over 100 pictures and they all turned out great!
Alora's mom was so proud of her and promised to develop some of them so Alora can put them in a photo album.
Alora loved being a photographer's assistant and it made her want to be a real photographer one day even more.

It was a beautiful day.
阿洛拉的妈妈是一名专业摄影师。她经常为不同的活动拍照。这些照片被刊登在杂志和不同的社交平台上。 阿洛拉认为这是一件了不起的事情,因为妈妈有机会参加世界级的活动,并通过她的镜头向其他人展示。

一天,阿洛拉问妈妈是否可以教她如何拍摄专业的照片。

"好啊,但记住,这不是一件容易的事哦。"

"我知道,"

"那么,你需要做的第一件事就是找到一个有趣而美丽的地方。"

"好的,"

"然后,你需要设置你的相机。"

阿洛拉的妈妈向她展示了如何设置相机,并给阿洛拉拍了张照片。

"你看到光线在你的脸上产生的阴影吗?这就是为什么有光源照亮你的脸很重要。"

阿洛拉尝试着将相机摆在不同的位置,然后选出她最喜欢的地方。她也学到光圈和快门速度对于拍出好照片很重要。

晚些时候,阿洛拉和她妈妈去了一个公园。 阿洛拉觉得这是一个拍照的好地方,因为有一棵有趣的树投下了长长的影子。妈妈帮她把相机放在正确的位置上,并告诉她如何确保光线充足。

"你可以根据光线量改变快门速度,"妈妈说, "这会让你的照片更亮或更暗。"

然后,阿洛拉用她刚刚学到的相机设置给妈妈拍了一张照片。

"我想拍更多的照片,我可以用你所有的过滤器吗?"

"没问题!"妈妈回答道。

阿洛拉和妈妈拍了一堆照片后,一张一张的看。

"我最喜欢这一张,"阿洛拉指着一张她妈妈的照片说。

"这也是我的最爱。"

第二天,阿洛拉在去学校之前和妈妈道别。她迫不及待地想把她拍的照片给她的朋友们看。

阿洛拉的朋友们都觉得这些照片很棒。 她的一位朋友说, "你很会拍照哦。"

"我长大后想成为一名专业摄影师。"阿洛拉自豪地回答。

阿洛拉很高兴她的朋友们喜欢她的照片,也很想和妈妈分享这个消息。

"你拍了更多的照片吗?"阿洛拉从学校回来的时候妈妈问她。

"这次不是,"阿洛拉笑道。 "我只是想告诉你我的朋友们对我的照片的看法。"

阿洛拉和她妈妈都觉得她的朋友们喜欢这些照片真是太好了。她们也应当会继续一起拍更多的照片吧。

第二天,阿洛拉的妈妈把女儿拍的照片给同事看。

"你看她多开心?" ,阿洛拉的妈妈说。 "她不仅自己拍照片,还和她的朋友们分享。如果那些小朋友也喜欢她的照片儿,她就更高兴啦。"

"我真为我的女儿骄傲"。

当她们到达那里时,妈妈让阿洛拉给新娘拍照。新娘穿着礼服美极了,也很开心。

然后,妈妈又拍了一些新娘和朋友及家人的照片。这真是一个美丽的婚礼,阿洛拉太喜欢和妈妈在一起工作啦!

仪式结束后,阿洛拉的妈妈又拍了一些等待拥抱新娘的人的照片。轮到阿洛拉的时候,新娘给了她一个大大的拥抱,然后妈妈也给了她一个大大的拥抱。

在回家的路上,阿洛拉看到她拍了 100 多张照片,张张都很棒!

阿洛拉的妈妈很为她感到骄傲,并答应会洗几张照片,阿洛拉就可以将它们放入相册了。
