Nice try Shaju, but I wish you were a bit closer when you took that shot . I think the face is a little out of focus.


I got my hands on some glassware last night and am dying to try some lighting techniques on them. Tonight, the experiments begin!

You tell me whats your plan, I am free on Saturday and happy within the city somewhere.

Its 35mm at f/1.8 and the kid was moving. Very tough to shoot kids with it, unless you know to hypnotize them ! I think I need to use the birding techniques to shoot them in focus (AF-C and faster shutter speed) Your tips are welcome.

Were you talking of hair gels?

I'll let you know. Would you be interested in doing a portfolio for a friend? (A girl, so don't get ideas about me now) :P.

Coming to shooting kids, what I generally practice is to keep the camera in continuous shoot mode. So, I move in and out usually around the minimum focusing distance and keep the button half pressed. As soon as I get the focus confirmation, I shoot frames continuously and I end up getting a series of in-focus shots with different expressions. I tend to use f4, as that gives me enough DOF with the 50mm. You might be able to get enough DOF even with f2.8 because it's a 35mm. Give it a shot.

Thanks for the invitation, I will try to find some birds around my place than spoiling your portfolio . But I am interested in people above 50, let me know when you do something of that sort. Your tips confirmed my thought process about the same. Will test it out next time.

And while we are on emotions/expressions of little ones, here is one from my side:

Oh that classic mischievous smile.
