First haircut
Lens: FA50 f/1.4 Camera: K10D Photo Location: hairdresser ISO: 100 Aperture: F4 
Posted By: Mechan1k, 07-30-2010, 07:36 PM

Here's a few pics I took of my son getting his first haircut ... my wife was having a hard time about it. She didn't want to get the ringlets at the back cut ... but it looks like he has retained some of them.

Surprisingly he was really good with it all ... and was amused with looking in the mirror most of the time.

Wasn't the easiest to shoot as well as there was a decent amount of light coming in from the glass sliding door behind him.

Thank goodness for bounce flash I guess.

These are just straight RAW/JPEG conversions so i can get them uploaded.

I used my FA50 this time ... I normally use my Tammy 90mm ... but it was a little too tight to try and get the shots in with that lens ... was pretty happy with the results though.

Bec was happy that Jack still had some of the ringlets left

Wonderful set! The FA50 renders really well, and these photos prove it.

Thanks for sharing these keepsakes with us

Thanks everyone ... was the first time I have mated the FA50 with an external flashgun.
I normally use the FA50 wide-open or close to it with natural light only. But I was pleased with the results with the flash.

Actually quite happy with the FA50 stopped down ... first time for me to do this ... and it's sharper than i expected.

Just goes to show i don't use the nifty fifty enough to exploite some of it's true potential.

Plus i need to brush up on my PP skills as well.

Most excellent series. My wife and I like #5 the best also. Reminds us of our two kids and when they got their first haircuts. But then again, I am the barber in the family! Thanks for sharing!

I'm with cupic: images #3, 4, & 5 have each captured totally entrancing expressions. Wait until your kids are as old as mine, then you'll know the true worth of these memories.

AFTERTHOUGHT: Try cropping #5 this way: 1) along the bottom to just eliminate the arm at the lower left; 2) along the top just above those wonderful curls. That will convert the image to near square and I think it will enhance the overall effect by removing a few elements that don't really contribute to the image.
