My child in fall...
Posted By: subidoc, 11-14-2009, 08:05 AM

She's a joy, she's fun, she's a riot, she loves to laugh, and she's my model. I decided to take off the Tamron 28-75/2.8, and try the SMC 28/2.8 I just picke up (National Camera Exchange, Edina, MN). Now I don't remember what my Tammy looks like!! (I hope I remember where I put it)

Thanks in advance for the comments. Images were just resized for uploads.

Great images! First one's a standout for me because of the framing. The expression in 2 is priceless

Well done

Nice photos! Really colourful and cute model.
Some great family moments for you to remember I'm sure.

Wonderful family shots. They will be more important as you get older. JIM

Thank you, guys, for your feedback. So far, In the 11,000 shots I have taken with my DS, I have never used any software to adjust images except for cropping or changing to B&W. If it is not good naturally, I almost always discard. I just don't have the time (or know-how) to process images. Maybe one day I'll get a book....

Thank you.... When I look at the images of that day, I realized all emotions were clearly represented, as all children do. Its a pleasure to work with kdis when they are not restricted, free to jump, play, sing and dance! I don't need a video camera when I shoot her pics, since she wears her feelings in her expressions!

Nice happy shots of you and your daughter
Technically not top notch with lighting, high contrast areas on faces, deep shadows etc
Fill flash could have helped here

Taff... you are so right. I actually HATE shooting in bright sunlight. I love overcast days for this kind of stuff. I am now kicking myself for foegetting to take my flash with me. Next time, I will try the pop-up flash for this. Do you change any settings when you use a flash?

Sailor, dcmsox2004... thank you for yur kind comments. I don't spend much time with her on weekdays, so I try to make up for it on weekends when I am not bogged down with work. I think she loves weekends more... Mondays are particulrly hard for her when I go back to work.

Hi subidoc
The camera's flash can allow for fill flash, but I always used to dial down the flash output when using for fill.
But i no longer use the camera flash as I have bought an Pentax 360 which is even better for fill
