My little cousin (actually, I think the true relationship is second cousin) had his 7th birthday on Saturday, so of course I nabbed my camera bag and off we went. None of these pictures are necessarily spectacular. In fact, with how fast these kids were moving, I simply didn't have time to setup anything the way I wanted. Some photos are a little dark, some are a little too light, but there were the best of the bunch. After reviewing them, though, I wonder if I like them because of the facial expressions, and because they're family and I love hanging out with family, or if it's because they're actually good photos. Eitherway, it was a good time. 1 hot link, 2 hot dogs, chips, candy, cake, playing with Legos, and lots of kids running around and laughing made for a great day in the sun.
Mostly shot with my 55-200 and my Sb-600 (for the outdoor and cake stuff), but a few of the portrait style shots were done w/o flash and with the 35mm f/1.8.
The Birthday Boy.
The wife and my mom. For some reason, my camera decided to focus on Jehn instead of both of them, so mom's face is a tad OOF (Out Of Focus). But still a good capture, I think.
