Did the Gent walking on the sidewalk in that first shot agree to have his picture taken?

One thing I think is she shouldn't just walk up to people and take their picture without permission. Some folks don't like that for a variety of reasons. A girl I work with is from Malaysia and she DOES NOT want her picture taken like that and she will certainly let you know. It's a cultural thing I think.

I know everyone is saying prime, which may be good for her. However, I say let her use your primes and a kit zoom. Let her discover the focal length(s) she likes and not the one you or someone here likes. That plus you being a good teacher will help her find her style.

I agree with this in that by letter her using a zoom you may find she has a preference for certain focal length. When you see a pattern in her photos you can get her a prime to match the focal length that matches her style. Now, I know there are those who will argue that using a prime with teach her how to frame a photo better. All we can do is offer suggestions; ultimately, you know how your daughter will react best.

You must not only think about her photography career, but also her physical ability. A 1DX combined with the EF 24-70 mm f/2.8L II USM will give her a workout at the same time as she takes pictures! :-P

Albeit a bit tongue and cheek, but this is very true. My daughter has a T5i, the 18-55 kit, the 50 1.8 and the 100 Macro. Even though I let her use my 5Dii whenever she wants (I just couldn't part with it when I bought the 5DIII as the prices I could sell it for just didn't make sense), she will be the first one to tell you that she prefers the t5i because of the weight/size. Now, if only they could make the 5DIV the size of the t5i, but that is another story.....

No. She was at a distance. I doubt the man knew what she was doing
