Here's some pics from the various holiday get togethers. I stuck with the smc-f 50mm 1.7. It's definitely a learning experience when using a prime lens. You really have to be more active inorder to frame the shot that you want. As Daniel once put it so well, "you zoom with your feet!" Some of these shots were actually taken at ISO 1600. Holy smokes, I normally never go beyond ISO 800, but I was at this one party where there was terrible lighting in the living room. Shooting in RAW definitely saved these pics. They were still grainy, but I was surprised that the pics with ISO 1600 were still quite useable after one application of Neat Image. No flash was used.

A twinkle in her eye.



Mommy can I open my presents now pleeeeeeeeeeeeease?


When I can't fix the color balance even with RAW, I turn it into a classic black & white. LOL!


Oh soft natural lighting, how I love thee.


This is my daughter's first christmas. My wife found it amusing to stick wrapping paper bows onto Megan.


She seems to really like the present that I got her.


Step 1. How to open the box.


I really need to get a infrared remote shutter release. This whole setting the 12 second delay and running back to get into the picture, gets kinda old after the 10th take. Little Megan kept on looking away or moving.

Anyways, on behalf of my little family, we would like to wish all the Steve's Digicam Pentax Dslr forum members a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Cheers all!


Come on Megan, will you smile already?! Hehehe

What a nice family - love your pictures. My favorite is the 4th one, though your last family portrait is also beautiful. Well done!

Couldn't agree more.

Thanks for sharing, happy pappy. Lovely pics of lovely family. What are those fascinating light dots in #1?

So now you've discovered the charm of taking available light shots! Let us see more!

In reference to the 6th picture. I'm surprised. At that age, they usually like the box the toy came in, or the wrapping paper better than the actual toy. Lucky!

Congrats - great shots/great looking family.

Good idea turning a potential failure into b/w though. Tend to forget this as we are all so used to colour these days.

Great shots, I agree that the lighting in the 4th shot is excellent. I have a 50mm f1.7 M series lens but I am still looking for a good deal in an F or FA lens (AF is a big plus when speed is an issue).

BTW love the pose in the black and white shot, very effective.

Happy New year

Ira
