My friends kids at the park
Lens: da 55 1.4 Camera: k5 
Posted By: Vindemiatrix, 11-15-2013, 02:37 AM

My friend asked me to take some photos of her kids. I was pretty satisfied with the results and learned a few things, since I had never had the chance to photograph kids, they move fast, but they also do not care what their best angle is, they're just kids!! I was surprised with the da 55 autofocus.

These are lovely shots and a great illustration of a variety of shots that can be achieved using a single focal length (and no small amount of skill)

Excellent examples of Snaportraits... so much better than a studio shot of the kids.

This is why I ended up with a dslr in the first place, and you have the eye and the skills to really do it right.

I'm with Dave on this. The child's eyes are just priceless. Great series.
