    Your niece has a good eye for light. That third picture is rich with it.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I thought so as well! I was shocked, since she hadn't shown any interest in photography before.

    they were all taken with the 12-60. i was shocked how good they turned out (other than the lower light, higher iso shots, like the water tower)
    its easy to foget that in good light, most cameras you could find to buy on ebay somewhere would take amazing photos. lol!
    must be all the GAS... its effecting my brain!
    "this old camera is JUNK! must buy this new shiny one!"
    ha!

    the b&w photos grain was primarily added in with silver efex
    tho the #2 b&w was already grainy enuf, since it was lower light, so i took out as much as i could, lol!

    lol luke
    i just noticed yer sig line! ha! :D

    i AM thinking (still) that i need an x100s! even tho i wasnt super impressed with the af speed while playing with it at precision. it wasnt amazing light, but i wouldnt say it was LOW light.. and it still was slow feeling. i already have slow feeling with the rx1. lol
    i need an x100s! exclamation point! lol

    Very nice....she clearly looks at things a little more intently.

    Leave the bait out there and encourage a little.....hopefully she picks up on it.

    back to niece #2... she snagged the em5 for some shots during theatre the other day. most of them are of her friends making the exact same "lower jaw sucked back and looking like a doofus" face, as i call it... and they all seem to think its the new duck face.. its kinda like a bucktooth duck face. or something.. anyways
    i thought these 2 turned out pretty nice PA310096. PA310117.

    Yeah those are interesting head shots. If she gets why, then she could be onto something. Go girl go!
