Took a few shots of my freinds little girl tonight - first time in a good few weeks that I have had a chance to use the FZ10. Here's threee shots out of about 7 taken - ISO 100, f2.8, aperture mode + Sunpak 383 ext flash. There's some noise in a couple of the shots esp around the neck but I was still happy with them.

Nice photos. I like the first one the best.

I see that almost everyone here prefer color over b&w.
wonder why..

nice work. i love b&w photos. i think color kinda detracts from the photo a bit.
but of course any opinion is subjective.

Thanks for checking the other pics - That pic is of Mr.B a street artist - I say artist becuase he could play the clarinet, Sax, flute and a whole other bunch of instruments. He seems to have moved on which is a real shame as we had built up quiet a good friendship and I would love to do a real shoot for him, however he really prefered the shots in colour!

Cheers

PS

Here's a B&W from today... Pic 4... System crash ! A wee bit soft - teh FZ10 seems to have locked focus on her jumper. Oh well, thats where the FZ30 and that high res EVF has the edge.

Actually, I think that soft focus is sometimes nice to make photos more emotive.

Softfocus and simple compositions make for stunning photographs.

Nice portraits, Harjtt. Did you use direct flash or bounced your Sunpak off the ceiling, or addedthe omnibounce attachment? I like the lighting.

Thanks mate for the compliment on eth shots. I just used the sunpack - no omnibounce just bounced straight of the ceiling at 90 degrees as that to me seems to give the best esp with the pretty light coloured floor. I was going to use a large white card as a reflector but decided against it as I just wanted to keep the shots as natural as possible.

Cheers
