Don't Say "Cheese!" - Photographing Babies and Chi&hellip by Mary Lynne Ashley
5.0 out of 5 stars Good practical help, 19 Mar 2013
I am a grandmother who has the reputation amongst family and friends for taking decent photos and I work at improving my technique as photography is my hobby. Until I retired I owned my own business so I know how important it is to do things in a business, efficient and cost effective manner. I think this would be an excellent book for people trying to set up a business photographing babies and children. The detail Ms Ashley went into about lighting and equipment was just right for me and I loved her ideas for keeping toddlers in the same place long enough to photograph them and positioning babies so that they look attractive.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this lens, 10 Feb 2013
I am not a very adventurous photographer - what I want is a camera and a lens that will take professional looking images of my grandchildren. I bought this lens because the reviews said that it takes good images in poor lighting conditions - - - and it does. It focusses on the subject quickly and precisely and the background blurs beautifully. I am really pleased with it. I also like it because it is compact and fairly lightweight. I tend to use this lens all the time, not the Nex 7 kit lens which I used very happily until this one arrived. I would be interested to know how much better the Zeiss E24mm/F/1.8 is - I might buy this one as well.

This product arrived without an instructions but having had a remote which I used with my Canon Camera I thought I would give it a go anyway. I took out the slip of plastic to engage the battery and changed the Drive Mode on my Sony Nex 7 to Remote Cdr. I put the camera on a tripod and sat in front to test it out. Firstly sometimes the switch failed it make contact with the camera and nothing happened but more importantly it didn't activate the autofocus mechanism in the camera and took out of focus photos. I then replaced my face with a broom head, focussed manually and took the photo. I don't want to use it for macro type photography but for spontaneous group portraits so it no use… Read more
