very well written article and the photographs and technique are great! You have motivated me as you have others prior to me to pick that body up and go shoot the little one(s). I know it's an older article but it is so well put together i thought it needed a year and half long bump :)

@Dave18: Sorry for the long delay responding. I never subscribed to the threat so I missed your question back in July. I believe I shot all of the images with autofocus lenses. I found I needed that extra bit of speed to cope with a fast-moving child.

A relatively simple approach would be to
1. go to the original post
2. select "Quote" and
3. when the "Post Reply" window comes up, delete everything above:
{I}{SIZE=2}{COLOR=yellow}How I Became a Daddy Photographer{/I}{/COLOR}
4. scroll to the bottom delete everything below:
{SIZE=3}{COLOR=yellow}Harry{/COLOR}{/FONT}
5. Hit "Preview Post" button.
6. Right Click on the preview window and select print.

P.S. I replaced the regular brackets with curly ones.

Hi Jocelyn - the article was written by Harry John, so all credit to Harry . I hadn't thought about a "printable" format. The only way I can think of how to do it is to cut and paste text and images into MS Word or similar. I'll have a play with it....

Cheers, Frank

Harry, thank you for this article. I started shooting with an SLR when my wife was pregnant, and I have taken some amazing pictures (to me, anyway) of my now seven-month old. One trick that this has helped me with is to remember to ZOOM IN!

Thanks!

Harry
Are these images taken with manual focus or do you use auto?
