Mrs. Butterfield High Peaks Kindergarten December 18th, 2006 Play
Hope you (and others) didn't mind the click-click-click picture taking at
the Kindergarten Play this morning. Out of the couple of hundred pictures
I shot, here's two that might be decent enough for you to forward to
the parents - just send around this URL - http://www.komar.org/beth/ - if you think it's of interest to 'em. I've provided links
to the full-resolution images in case anyone wants to print 'em - as noted
below, they should look pretty decent in print.

P.S. One challenge in the group picture was that there were three kids
(I won't say who! ;-) who were fidgeting almost the entire time,
so there were actually only a few shots where all faces could be seen.
Also, they were looking down low at the people in the front row, whereas
I was shooting from up high. I didn't want to interupt things, but if you
want to next time, doing a quick "hey, look up here at the camera"
would address both of those issues and provide higher probability of
getting a good shot.
PPS. For the photo-hounds out there, pictures were shot with
a Canon Rebel XTi DSLR with 17-85mm IS lens. I opted to go w/o flash
(didn't want to strobe the kids) and therefore had to bump the ISO to 1600
(exposure was F5.6 at 1/50 second) ... so they are a bit grainy at full-res;
but should still print quite well at least up to 8x10.
And for grins, I saw a coyote as I drove home on Valmont
This was a quick shot from the car window before he bounded off
