Mariam's flower (11 yr old!)

  1. While at Hagerman Refuge, Mariam was enjoying my D50 with the 70-300mm attached. I had the camera set on AUTO for her. Here's a couple she got. Hope my ps isn't too bad!

    Another good one from Mariam. It apears she can hold the camera steady, Good work:wink:
     
  3. Thanks! We all shot from the car. She propped the camera on a small blanket on her window. At some point, I think we'll be getting more bean bags for some other little car window thingie. She seems to be a natural - holds her elbows in close, and I think she actually considers composition. I'm trying to teach all 3 kids about lighting - something I struggle with too!

  5. very impressive! give her my best
     
  6. Thanks ya'll! She's been wanting to use my D50 for the longest, but I was afraid to let her. Now, I won't be so nervous about it. I watched her - she holds her elbows in, she looks before she puts the camera to her eye, and then she doesn't hurry the shot. I'm very proud of her for sure! And you can bet she's reading her posts!
     
  7. Very nice.

  9. Thanks! She's really getting hooked on the D50. I have a feeling she's gonna be after the D200 before long! :eek:
