canon 50mm 1.8
Damn, I love this lens. It is an overcast day, and this is (obviously) an indoor shot, using reflected cloudy day light. You can see my light source in the reflection in his eye.
This was shot wide open at 1.8 to get as much light as I could. He is sitting on my lap, and I am holding the camera away from me, trusting the camera to focus and all. I love how the nose is slightly soft, as are the ears, but the eye is tack sharp.
This is probably a little underexposed. If I were to print or otherwise use the picture, I would putz with the levels in photoshop. For the sake of pictorial integrity, or whatever, all I did was resize it.

Well, this is what I use the photos for. Not precisely on topic, but here it is...

As a non-photographer, I am struggling with both tasks. Sometimes, though, the painting turns out decently in spite of all my relative handicaps.

I'm a huge newbie, experimenting with my first digital camera - a Canon A510. Any tips appreciated in taking better shots!
This is one of my cats, Caitlyn, in her favorite pose. Around here we call it "Rude Ears".
