Benjamin enjoyed yogurt Tuesday while finishing up two sick days home from school. I was playing around with my cameras and lenses to see which combinations would work best for the shoot I volunteered to do on Wednesday night. More on that later.
Sitting next to him on the couch, I asked Benjamin to look over at me. It’s the informal pictures like this, capturing a moment in a good composition, that serve as the random rewards that keep me clicking the shutter. For this shot I used an old manual focus 28mm lens on my Nikon D100 DSLR. A lens that came with a used Nikon FG body I bought used several years ago, it is more versatile when using existing light. It is more difficult, however, when photographing a wriggling child, because even the exposure is manual.
Good thing he was lethargic that day.
