A New Photog

The following are some images made by a young friend of mine. This is his first foray with a camera, and he did a fine job--especially using a fully manual camera. Actually, this may be a contributing factor to why he did well; thinking about how to make an exposure look good, including manual focus, is key to making a good picture and sometimes all the auto settings rob you of the best pictures. Knowing how to do it manually is a boon I'm glad I learned on my cheap Ricoh with Tri-Max 400. If Mr. Barbera could see me now...

Nikon D90, 55mm micro lens, f/3.5-22, 1/80-1/200s, ISO 200.
