I have had a chance to play this afternoon with the new camera and some of the photos turned out OK. After doing my homework this is the first time I have used the camera fully manual and felt like I was controlling it as opposed to being completely out of control. I am happy with that.
Here are the first lot of photos.
This is W. He is watching TV, hence the vacant look on his face. Please excuse the filthy clothing, but he doesn’t generally stay clean for more than about 2 seconds after dressing him. When he wasn’t looking at the TV he kept crawling straight to me and then on me. That made it particularly difficult to photograph him. Cheeky fellow.
That last one was a bit of a disaster. Great face with a distracting background made worse by trying to fix it. Boo.
Gotta love a baby that can put up with his mother following him around photographing him all the time. He just works around me. Beautiful.
