    ...at my nephew's t-ball game.

    These were taken about a month ago, but I've finally got a few spare minutes to post them up. The kids are only about 3 years old, so trying to get decent shots was more fun than actually watching the "game".

    1. He wasn't a big fan of playing defense. I can't really blame him - at that age, the fun part is hitting the ball. Is it me, or does my 3 year old nephew look closer to 5 or 6 here?

    2. He may or may not have actually hit the ball, but he's running anyway.

    3. Inside the park home run I guess. Here he is on his way to third.

    4. Rounding third and heading home!

    5. Defense was no fun, so this how he spent the 2nd inning.

    6. End of the game, congratulating the other team.

    7. This boy ran up to me after the game and asked me to take his picture. I asked him to smile several times, and this is what I got. It was bright out, but not THAT bright, so I thought it was kind of a funny picture.

    The boy's mother (my sister-in-law) really liked how the pictures came out, so I imagine I'll be invited to future sporting events. Any tips on how to improve my shots?

    1-4: Bright background + matrix metering = underexposed subject. When you see situations like this, either use fill flash or bump the exposure compensation up a stop or two.

    Some are oof too, might want to stick to single point AF, focus, and recompose. Scenes like #6 the cam will almost always focus on the people closer in instead of the subject on multi-point af.




    Cute kiddo! no pedo

    I see what you mean on #6. I guess I wasn't paying close enough attention before, but I see now that the other kid's hand appears to be the sharpest part of the shot.

    Thanks for the feedback!
