The great thing about kids is that you can convince them to do about anything when it comes to getting photographs. A piece of glass to press your face up against, a puddle to jump in or maybe even a screen door to get behind. Super Dynamite was in town and I took the opportunity to make a few pictures. Very few actually. This entire edit was ONE frame, the one you see here. Oh well, win some, lose some. One is enough for me.
“Press your face up against that screen.”
“No, I don’t want to.”
These last two images are with the M9 at 640 ISO. This camera is VERY sharp. I hear a lot of talk in regard to high ISO with digital cameras and the ability to shoot at speeds upwards of 25,000. I guess that is great. Personally, I’ve never had a need or desire to do that. As you know by now, I’m an oddball. With digital I RARELY shoot over 640. Digital sees in the dark, WAY beyond film, so if I can’t shoot it at 640 ISO and 1.4, I’m probably not going to shoot it. In most cases with digital I don’t go over 320 ISO, including all those weddings I did over the years. I’d go to 320 ISO and pop in a little strobe. The M9 is razor sharp at these speeds, probably higher if you feel the need.
