    Hey guys,

    Here are some more shots. These were taken with my XTi and 55-250mm IS lens. Please C&C.

    Thanks!

    #1 I really wish he was looking at me when I took this.

    #2 I got this idea from a thread I saw on another forum.

    #3 This little girl just came up to my son at the park and started holding his hand. I like this one because you can see her holding his hand in their shadows. Oh and in case anyone is wondering..he is wearing a glove because he tends to suck his fingers :(

    #4 And here is a close-up of the little girl.

    I like them all, especially 2! I like 3 a lot as well, and if I were to nitpick, I would say that if you hadn't cut the top of the girls head off slightly, and you could've gotten rid of the bits of trash it would've been a much stronger picture. But I like it a lot anyway. As you said, I really like how you can see the shadow of them holding hands. That's really cute.

    Thanks for the comment! I actually have another version with the top of her head showing, but couldn't crop it down to a 4x6 without cutting something out :(. I can go back and try to crop part of the shadow instead of her head. Oh and I'll go back and clone out that trash. I didn't notice it when I was making my adjustments and saving for web.

    It was pretty easy! You basically get on it..set a slow shutter. I think I used anywhere from 1/40-1/60, but I might have also shot a few using 1/20, and after selecting your shutter..just have someone spin you. Make sure you have the focus on your subject. The hardest part was trying to stay on!! I kept sliding haha.

    I figured you used a slow shutter speed...I just figured your son would've had to be perfectly still so he wouldn't be blurry.
    I bet you had a fun ride!

    Yeah, he was pretty still! His mom spun us pretty fast to get that motion though so I am a bit surprised I managed to get that picture without him being blurry. The ride was fun! But I had this fear of sliding off and dropping my camera lol
