Default Air Force Armament Museum

Took the girls to the museum to practice a bit. Thought I would share some of the fun with my online friends here.

Looks like the girls enjoyed the trip, you had some fun also, I was at the same museum with my grandkids on a visit to Ft Walton Beach, nice place for photos. I liked the 4th shot best

Very nice series! Your girls are adorable. I love the first one - my favorite, but really all are very good. Just my personal taste/opinion, I guess the only one I'm not really crazy about is the 6th one (the first one you posted of the SOCOM mock-up). While its small dof is nicely done, it left me wanting to see more in focus. I normally love using large apertures and think that your tank mock-up picture is great fun, really like that, but don't think it works as well with the SOCOM picture.

Looks like your girls had a great time, and you had a great time chasing them around! You are skilled at capturing their expressions!

It's a great little museum and they run strictly off donations. And yes, I think these kids make it easy to get good shots of them. They've had enough time in front of a camera for sure!
