    Fun With Photos

    My nephews went to see the Harry Potter premier the other night.
    They asked me to take some pictures of them and their friends.

    First my kids had to get in on the fun.

    Then my nephews and their friends.

    I know there are some unfavorable reflections and the background is not good. It was kind of a spur of the moment thing. I have very little experience with multiple subjects, and zero with 6! I thought I would share some fun photos that I took with my family and friends. Not bad IMO.

    I took these with my canon 50mm 1.8 which has a really annoying tendancy to front focus!

    Thanks Mary or Lucy
    Sometimes I think too much about getting things 'right', though in this case if nothing else I captured the fun of the moment.

    I'm just the opposite... I try to capture the fun or the moment and should spend more time thinking it through.

    I may have the capturing memories and moments right... but... I wish I had a bit more technical quality while capturing them. I'm working on it.

    I made a print of the second shot and all the dark on the bottom looks even more muddied

    Brian, these images made me smile. You have captured some beautiful unrehearsed moments. Treasure these times, for they will pass all too quickly.

    But all their faces, expressions and hand gestures aren't dark so they can't be muddied ~ and those things make the photo, so it's... perfect!
