"RE: blowing bubbles"
That will depend on your artistic desires.Personally I would start with f/5.6 and adjust from there to get the depth of field I wanted (probably more shallow).I would start with 1/125 (or higher) to freeze most of the child's motion, assuming she is relatively stationary. Adjust as needed to get the bubble effects you are looking for.Lastly, I would adjust the ISO to whatever level was needed to make the above settings work.Don't be afraid to experiment. Digital film is cheap. ---------+---------+---------+---------+Joseph KSeattle, WA, USAD700, D200, D70S, 24-70mm f/2.8, VR 70-200mm f/2.8 II, 50mm f/1.4 D,17-55mm f/2.8 DX, 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 VR, 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 DX
