Thank you...There is no exif data on these as I copied and pasted from Flickr(don't do that often). The setup I used is Sony A300 Dslr with the Minolta 70-210 f/4 "Beercan". Used fill flash on a number of the pics to lessen harsh shadows, since most of these were taken in bright sunlight just after noon.

ps All pics were shot wide open, at f/4

People look at you funny when you use an external outdoors, but it can make a HUGE difference. Indoors, with bounce from ceiling or wall, it's just phenomenal!

Thanks Mike and Ruthless, and to all who responded, I'm frankly blown away! I do the best I can with what I have, and it's very encouraging to get this kind of positive feedback. Thanks again!

Quick question for the pros on here...

Which lens and setting do I need on my canon xsi, in order to capture pictures like the OPs?

Thx

a few posts before the OP said this:
