Scott and I took two of the kids out with us on Friday night. They’re just beginning in photography and felt special to get the chance to come out with us. We went to Strathcona park in Ottawa. Both kids have good Bridge cameras and a tripod. I asked what kind of pictures they like to take, “anything, everything” was the quick answer.
On site i was the ducks in the river that first caught their attention. unfortunately the light was very low and even using high ISOs, they still couldn’t get a shutter speed fast enough to freeze the birds. They did try hard, though, and it will be interesting to see what they post.
The second most popular subject was the “love bench” with themselves on or behind it. The tripods and self timers really helped with this. The name comes from the big heart painted on the wooden bench.
Scott and I got a few pictures, I only have two that I like. The one at the top of this blog and one of some reeds posted to the Project 52 site. We’ll go back with Dave when the lighting is better. The kids had a good time and that’s the main thing.
