Default Abby's first photo outing

I just wanted to post some pictures she took on her first time out. Unfortunately, I had the ISO on her K10D set to 1600 for some reason and they are not as good as they should be and it's my fault... I think they are pretty good considering she's 5! First couple are of her taking pics and the rest are from her camera.

We will work on slowly weaning her off green mode later. I am just letting her get used to shooting and focusing some for now.

Abby's going to make a great photographer!
She sure is a cutie.
The image quality on those are better than anything I ever got out of my K 10 at 1600 ISO.

Life's a breeze on a Goldwing...

Very well done! It's amazing how these Pentax cameras can come up with excellent shots even if you don't know huge amounts about photography - in many cases all it takes is a good eye. Your daughter obviously has a very good eye.

Abby is clearly on her way to being a distinguished photographer. It's wonderful to have a hobby you can share with your child!

That shot of her sitting on the steps is so precious ! Needs a touch straightening though

She did remarkably well ! She looks like she has a natural portrait photographer's eye !!

Isn't it great to be able to share the fun together! You are giving your young'un your most valuable possession, and what she needs most - your time & attention.

And she takes some mighty nice photos too!
