Not bad for a first shot, eh? He was thrilled with himself. Eventually I realized that for his tiny hands, the back button focus needed to go, so I switched it back to using the shutter release for focus. That worked a lot better for him.
I should also mention, I had not really anticipated being in front of the camera this day. Life has felt stressful and to put it plainly, I haven't felt much like fixing my hair lately. So this day was just a pull back into a ponytail day. But I suppose, this is real. The real me that they see, so it might as well be what he captures.
Then I asked the Little Lady if she'd like a turn. She said yes. And she was so stinking cute doing it, I just had to grab my stellar (sarcasm) phone to grab that memory. So these were taken with my Droid Incredible, which incidentally does NOT take Incredible photos (though my husband's identical phone does!).
The Lady took a lot more VERY out of focus images.... so none of me-shooting-her-shooting-me (mouthful) were even remotely recognizable. But she did get a few of Little Buddy and me.
I'm really glad that Lora mentioned how she got her Me & Mine shots. I bet Little Buddy will really enjoy shooting some this summer! I may have to ask my friend Rebecca to borrow back my D70 and 50mm f1.8 lens so he can play!
