Thanks shutterbug and NHL.
I think the hands on the hips is a way of telling papa he takes way too many pictures.

Wonderful shot, Mike. No, you can't get too many pictures of these little creatures. Nice lens, I know you're having fun with that A850...

Hey thanks Robert,

nice to hear from you. I'm sure you and your granddaughter share similar moments. Sometimes these little girls start tipping their head or putting their hands on their hips or giving some fake pose. In other words, we have taken their pictures so many times that start to behave differently when they see the camera pointed at them. They grow up so fast and it's getting more difficult to get those candid shots.

The a850 is an incredible camera. And some of the older lenses really shine while attached to it. Full Frame just seems to give (especially for portraits) that extra 3D appearance compared to the a700. Probably because of the greater control over depth of field.

But, you are absolutely right, you can never get too many pictures of them.

That DOF is superb. It's almost as if she has a perfect spotlight of focus on her. Thanks for sharing!

Very good shot, Mike

The fun body language and cute smile make for a great subject.

You've composed and controlled DOF very very well.

Also a positive that it's sharp and contrasty, with vibrant colours, yet still natural looking.

Thanks for sharing your cute grand-daughter. Outdoor portraits I prefer over studio / posed ones. So you've captured an example to be proud of.

Paul

Great job. The thing that strikes me in particular is a small point, but one that I routinely fail to do right -- you have aligned yourself such that there is backlighting behind your child's head, which provides the definition that would be missing if you were a few feet to the left or right. This is the kind of thing that I unfailingly notice right away in post, and forget to think about before I click the shutter!
