I know this is primarily a site for black and white photography, but I DO have a color camera and mostly shoot my grandkids with that. It also has the advantages of being an autofocus camera, which my monochrome camera is not, and has a fixed 28mm lens, which gives me a better chance of getting them in the frame, given that they’re in constant motion.

I took the shots in this post earlier this week. In this first one, I was sitting at the dining room table, and Kai wanted me to pick her up and put her in my lap. That’s the reason for the beseeching look.

Then we went on a walk in the afternoon and the light was soft and warm. In this shot, Eva spontaneously gave Kai a kiss.

They were taking turns leading each other by the hand. Then Kai took off running.

At the end of the walk, Kai stopped and turned and looked back for her sister.

Good light plus good subjects goes a long way toward making successful photos. I had both that day.
