FANTASTIC PHOTOS: Eight-year-old Abbots Langley girl’s shots displayed in exhibition 

 Published on: 13th November 2020   |   By: Jake Levison   |   Category: Uncategorized

An eight-year-old girl from Abbots Langley showcased her unbelievable photography skills in a recent village display.

Honey Kingshott, whose dad, Darren, is an accomplished photographer, was the only child to have her work put on display in this year’s Abbots Langley Open Photography Exhibition at the Henderson Hub community arts centre.

Honey’s three framed photos were impressive shots taken in her garden during the first lockdown. They were on display from October 19 until the second lockdown began, forcing the exhibition to close early.

Darren has had an impressive 10-year career as a professional photographer, seeing him become a national award winner and member of the Guild of Photographers.

He said: “I could see Honey had a creative eye for things, so I started teaching her photography at the age of five.

“Over the past three years, she has developed an artistic eye of what to capture. Honey is very creative anyway, so photography is becoming a natural talent and she is taking photos at quite a decent standard. 

“During lockdown she was in the garden most days just practicing and snapping away and the butterfly and bee shots are her favourite photos.

“I feel proud when people ask her in disbelief: ‘Did you actually take those?’ That always makes her smile and feel proud of herself.

“I’m extremely proud of her and hopefully, one day, she may follow in my footsteps and have a career in photography.”

Honey, who is a pupil at St Paul’s School, Langleybury, uses a Nikon D7100 and 18-105mm kit lens.
