Just a few snap-portraits of my son...
Posted By: heliphoto, 09-06-2009, 09:10 PM

Just some snaps 'round the yard...

(this one's a touch blurry, but I love the expression...)

If you tell my boy to smile, you'll invariably get this look (blue steel I think it is )...

instead, you need to let him hit you with the swing - this delights him...

All shot with the K-7 and the DA* 16-50mm/50-135mm zooms.

Boy he's growing fast Josh, I think last time I saw him, you were still carrying him everywhere.

Nice work with the swing shots. Haven't tried the swings yet with my K7 but my poor old k100d COULD NOT auto focus on swinging subject at all.

Well, the K7 was only achieving focus at the apex of the swing where the motion is slowest, but it still beat my K20d.
