    Kids Candid Portraits!

    I have never felt comfortable with portraits, formal portraits especially. But I enjoy taking candid moments. Lately kids have been of my interest. So here are a couple of shots I have liked. Wish to see your comments & critics

    Very nice, Robert.

    I'm a fan of the "Pleasantville Effect" and you did a nice job with it and nice DoF to set it off.

    Great shots everyone! Terry, your shot is super sharp. What lens were you using?

    Here's one of my recent shots.

    The look on that face is just priceless, Chris. Great capture there.

    My nephew was shot with an EF70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM. Shot at 200 mm.

    Thanks Terry, I love doing selective color work. That shot of your nephew is amazing. The EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM is a great lens. my Christmas present to myself this year is going to be a 1D mark IV and an EF 200mm f/2L.

    Merry Christmas already!

    This past year I've "made due" with my 50D & 70-200mm f/2.8L for a lot of sports & motorsports work. The 1D mark IV will make that much easier/better with it's dual digic 4 processors and 45 AF points alone. The 200mm f/2L is more of a creative indulgence lens. It will be ok for the sports stuff but the 70-200mm f/2.8L is much more versatile. I might consider a 300mm f/2.8L to compliment the 70-200 instead.

    Great shot Steve. I like the grayscale. What color was his shirt? I'm thinking that this shot would make a pretty good selective coloring image if the colors are right.

    Ah, the “Innocence of Youth”.

    Makes my Heart soar. And you guys do such a compelling job of it capturing it. Makes me glad I never really grew up and I hope I am never expected to!

    Steve, I don’t know how you handled the eyes on the young man of “Impasse”, or if you did anything at all, but that shot snaps for certain.

    Had to chuckle, Steve! Not only was it a “Kid’s Candid”, but added the “the other element of cute”, the cuddly fur ball!

    Bagged two of the most difficult subjects ever!

    What cute kids on the thread.
    Chris, just love the expression of the kid, in your shot.
    Rob Douglas, the DoF * selective colours in your shot look great!

    Rob, the t-shirt was pale yellow and grey. I do use selective colouring every so often but never thought about applying it to a people pic. Although, it does work extraordinarily well in your pool photograph above....mmmm

    Steve, I don’t know how you handled the eyes on the young man of “Impasse”, or if you did anything at all, but that shot snaps for certain.
    I would be very surprised if I had n't applied a slight USM. I usually do with the eyes.
