Great images and very cute boy!
Pentax... C'mon dad... Get the kid a Leica...
You better start saving for a EOS 1D Mark IV!! It proves that it's never to early to start 'em up.:smile:
I have one... But, Hands Off for now....
Prefer he uses the G1/17 if we go out together.
Yeah, he's young yet.... Later when he learns about Leica, I'll steer him to the M9...
No thanks needed...Lol
Your Treating ?
I'll give him the M5 in that case
I'll spring for the 35/2.8 Biogon, so he has a lens
Thank You-Thank You-Thank You-Thank You-
good subject... the images would be much better in black & white and a shallow depth of field to isolate the subject. Ultimately, you'd want to eliminate the flash and go with nice soft light, coming through a window, for example. But I realize you didn't have that option here.
In the final shot, I would probably crop in a little tighter on the 'face' and try to implement the rule of thirds (but that's my personal preference in most cases).
I also think shots like that are best when you can get a little of the person's expression included, or eye contact. That's why I strongly prefer your first shot. Great expression!
Leicas, Canons and lenses oh my!....my first camera was a brownie bullet ( still have it )...cute kid though....
Am I seeing crazy sharpening halos?
Thanks for the suggestions, I'll try BW, options..
I usually go past the ideal, and back off the sharpening a few times as I adjust the radius and threshold,
Mine was a Voigtlander Prominent with a 50mm f/1.5 Nokton...I was 15. Wish I had it today
