Yes, Gordon, it is great exercise. I hope she continues with it. Schoolwork comes first, though. And she can kick correctly when she wants to. She has a tendency to forget in all the excitement!
Gale, thanks for the comments. I am trying to get more comfortable with that lens. There are a lot of parents that saw some sample prints and would like to order some. I guess I am learning a little bit anyway.
Those are such clear shots....I'm jealous! My daughter is playing soccer this fall, and both my husband and I are coaching. I took a break to take a few pictures on Thursday night and got nothing but blur. I'm still at the point where I need to think an awful lot about my camera settings, and apparently I didn't take enough time to do that :lol: Great job on your photos...I'll bet your daughter enjoyed seeing them! My daughter (age 6) looked at mine and said 'those aren't very good.' Gotta love kids' honesty!
