Akita Kanto Matsuri – Kid Portraits

Digital Discovery #1

The LCD screen on the back of the camera is a great way to interact with the people you are meeting. Take one shot of a kid, and then show the image to the whole group. You then have 10 kids who want their photo taken.

Having a whole group of kids wanting you to take their photo could be a problem my old camera.

With digital I could happily shoot everyone (and delete images later).

I handed out business cards to the parents of these kids, so if you are one of their parents please contact me so that I can mail you the digital file or prints.
