Children in the snow
Lens: DA* 50-135 Camera: K-30 Photo Location: Texas ISO: 400 Shutter Speed: 1/350s Aperture: F2.8 
Posted By: K McCall, 02-25-2015, 12:33 PM

We finally got some wintry weather this morning, so I took my kids out with the K-30 and the DA* 50-135/2.8. My three-year-old did not want to pose, but my eight-month-old didn't really have a choice

All photos processed in Lightroom.

Great shots, and good looking kids. That red coat and hat is great against the white backdrop.

I love the look of your 8-month old trying figure out just what this white stuff is!

The first image captures beautifully the wonder of a child.

Thanks! I'm going to go ahead and admit that I think about how certain clothes are going to look in photos when I buy them. Not all their clothes, mind you, but some. And I think my son really was quite befuddled about just what the heck was falling all around him and getting stuck to his eyelashes.

That was definitely my favorite of the day. To be so lucky to experience so much of life for the first time!

Stunning captures, and I absolutely love the processing on these photos. Wish I could get the most out of my K-30 shots as you get out of yours. Your photos have seriously think twice about gettin... er, "investing" in a full frame system.

Thank you so much! I too am hoping to get my hands on a FF camera rather sooner than later, although I'm going to at least try to hold off until the price drops a bit. I keep telling myself that what I have is good enough for now...and honestly, I was really happy with these shots, so maybe I'm right!

If you're at all interested in the processing, I did a bit of a write up a while back on my blog about similar processing for a different snow shot. It's here: Father and Daughter in the Snow. I'll try to write up the specific processing for these photos soon and update this thread. Thanks for commenting!
