Comments:

The first shot was posted to illustrate how using an aftermarket flash (in this case, the Vivitar DF 200) with the weaker flash models (FZ1, FZ10) really helps improve indoor shots. As you can see by the dof, I was far away from the subject. This was an experiment to try to get that 35mm film look, blurred background/isolated subject.

The second shot, I was just screwing around (get it? :G) stacking a macro filter on top of an IR filter, produces some neat effects, I think.

All pictures taken with the Mighty FZ-1v2.

Nah, my bad. Had a little trouble posting it, past the 244 kb limit (though that's not what PS said...) so I had to bring it back up in PS, which - as you know, takes 10 minutes to boot.

Best way to shoot kids is to get them when they're emersed in some TV show. They're in the theta state and completely oblivious to you and the camera, even with the flash.

Thanks for your kind works, all!
