Recently wrote a post about using photography to cope, get out of the house, and get out of the car. This time my son wanted in.
To which I said gladly. He had recently been sent out into the wild with a favorite point and shoot and some Cinestill BWXX and he did a fine job.
This time I set him up with an SLR that does quote a capable impression of a point and shoot. The affordable and capable Pentax *ist.
Paired it with a great lens.
A pairing far better than it has any business being. Since we were going out on quite a sunny and pleasant evening I paired it with Fujifilm 200 and as usual, I developed it for him at home with Cinestill CS41.
Also edited them for him. A light touch was all that was needed. The occasional tilt and such. As usual the Pentax *ist nailed focus and exposure. I am biased admittedly, but the young man has an eye. On such a bright day I recommended he go with full auto, instead of my Av usual go to, so he would not have to concern himself with over exposure on such a bright early evening. Gave him one or two tips on framing and we were off. All 36 came out and here is a large selection of his captures.
Final thought. Easy. Great to share photography with others. Makes it especially gratifying when it is your own child.
