DSLR as point and shoot snapshooter
Posted By: Igilligan, 10-17-2008, 02:40 PM

I handed the K100 and tamy 28-75 to my friends daughter to take a snap of her dad and I... showed her how to zoom to frame and half-press to get focus. I think it came out ok... (wish my wife would use it more often cause I am never in the pics!)

ps.. Of course I am the one on top! haha


She is a very funny girl and gave this 'cartoon' face when her dad was trying to figure out how to take a pic with my camera...


And here is a snap or two of my kids with the vivi 105







And 2 more with the 28-75





Thanks for looking...

These are very good snaps. Really like the one in the water. Only many years later will your daughter appreciate the crying photo. Good luck to you in the interim ;>)

Good stuff Gus. You should hand her the camera more often.....she handles it very well. Of course, having good subjects to shoot always helps.

I'm going to cry because mine isnt in color.

Sharp, excellant photo's. Have one Grand Daughter that is interested in photography. Any time I am going on a photo excursion and she is avalable to go, she will use one of my cameras and see some things which I would no notice and stop to shoot. jim

Ha! I love the insanity of no.2, and the evocative sadness of the last one, but so many speak to me. Great stuff!

Gus, these shots are truely wonderful. The funny face made me laugh and the one with the bubbles it fantastic. It is a new perspective on the blackmail bath shots we all have of our kids. Thanks for sharing these.

BTW the crying one is great also.

Very nice photos indeed. When I see shots like that, it reminds me that I need to work on my portrait skills.

Gus, you are handsome! Where the heck did you pick up your avitar? ;-)
I love the shot of your daughter in the bubbles. And the last one is absolutely priceless! Thanks for sharing these I enjoyed them all.

She was really just postering for an ice cream and I said no... I snapped this just before the teardrops fell... SHE GOT the ICE CREAM

No kidding, they are both refusing to let me take pics of them when I ask, so I think the 70-200 2.8 may be my only hope...

I really like that series, I just grabbed my camera when I saw her floating in the bubbles, and the series 1 macro was on it. Came out ok for a manual lens...

I would but she just got her first car.... we will probably never see her again... At least that is the way it was back in my day...

I cant wait until mine are old enough to pass some of my cameras to... They just see the world very different from us... and that is a good thing.

Thanks Jeff, the last one is one of my fave shots of the Menace... Those teardrops are just about to fall... She is really working me lately with the pouting and crying to get her way... And you can see from that shot she is very good at it!

Well thanks LaRee, that is very sweet of you to say... I have recently lost 35-ish lbs and about 10 of those must have been in my face, cause I can now see a hint of my old dimples....

That avatar is a wax head for some Art Deco show that I managed...


I finally finished the bubble series and this one ended up being my fave... just for the attitude!!!

Great shots Gus, you have a talent with those kind of shots (as well as macros!). That last shot, that tongue is just screaming out to have some PP work done on it.
