Les Boys au Parc!

Frederic Jacques

Eric and I took the kids down to the parc while Chloe was with her tutor. After getting Les Boys bundled up and making sure their little monkey hats were pulled down tight over their ears, I grabbed the camera bag and a full cup of coffee and headed of to meet Eric. SwingsThe girls had a great time plying on the swings and in the sandbox.Even in their snow suits, the sand is irresitable. Eric even managed to take some stunning macros pics with his point and shoot. We were both kind of questionning if this was even possible without and Aperture setting, but Eric powers of figuring out small Gadgets proved the theory possible.

Swings

So this is the stunner he took:

Canon Point and Shoot DoFAnd this is the shot I took with my Pentax K200d in RAW with my manual 70-200mm Macro Zoom lens.

Ok so you can see that both shots have some and impressively shallow Depth of Field. Of course my shot was taken in RAW sor the colour capture is a little more vibrant and I was able to control the exposure a little better. But in truth, Eric’s shot is awesome and his composition using the Rule of Thirds is very impressive. So it just goes to show the camera does not make the shot, it’s still up to the eye.

On a seperate note, I am very proud to announce that Eric has officially joined the 2Fatdads.com crew and has already submitted his first article. Please take the time to read it here and have a party in his Comments.
