Technical data: Fuji FinePix 205 camera, 640x480 resolution, f/3 @ 1/250 or so, P mode, focal length 5.5 mm.
Taken inside a bus in Spain by my son Pablo, one week before this third birthday. He pulled his camera out of his pocket, pointed at the people on the bus, the flash surprised everyone, and this is what he got. He liked the guy on the first row and focus on him for the second shot.
My contribution was to adjust curves and convert to b&w to make them worth posting here
He's now 7 and has lost some interest for photography. Hope it comes back, as he's got some talent as a street photographer.
Only a child could get away with such a shot in a bus full of people! I love the way everybody along the the bus seems to be straining to look at Pablo as he took the shot. Just to show how a child can get away with such a direct approach, he then points the camera and takes a second shot. He's a born street photographer! You need to work on re-building his interest in the art.
Steve (Bedfordshire, England) My Nikonians Gallery- please visit and leave a comment A Nikon in the hand is worth two in the bag!
Steve, thanks for the comments! I wouldn't dare to put the camera with flash to a bus full of people, but he didn't even had to think about it. Now he's more into sports and friends, but last year he enjoyed building a pinhole camera with me and doing the chemistry thing, using ilford paper as negatives and doing contact prints as positives. I hope I can get him back to like making photos.
>Sorry, we'll have to move this, you can only post Nikon camera >based images in the forums.
David, are you serious? I didn't know that only images created with a Nikon camera could be posted. It was my understanding that only those paying their dues can post images, any images. The fact we're Nikon users doesn't mean we *only* use Nikon. This rule would seem overrestrictive to me.
I apologize for not responding to your question earlier.
Here is the relevant ToU
3.2. In the forums, do not post any images not made by a Nikon camera or a Nikon-based hybrid camera. If you want to share images taken with other cameras/formats, these pictures can be be posted in the Other Camera Systems forum only.
