This is the first weekend in 2009. A few days ago I borrowed a Canon 450D and did some candid shots. Surely, a compact can do serious portraits. But the DSLR is still undeniably something that a compact cannot match for now at least in terms of high ISO performance and the focusing speed.
The photos were done by pre-focusing the camera on a 200mm lens at ISO 1600, except for the colour ones in which the girl was less active. The two girls were playing peekaboo with each other and with the camera. The light was just right so that I could manage to get catchlights in their twinkling eyes. Have a nice weekend. Enjoy!
