Kids’ birthday parties are all the rage in our neighborhood. A bunch of indoor play halls with loads of inflatable structures and other kiddy games have opened these past few years around here, and they are very popular for birthdays. For a non negligible but well justified fee, you can organize your kid’s party and keep the mess of a dozen hyper 5 yrs old securely away from your own home. That’s sweet.
I had taken the NEX 7 along, with the SEL35, and nothing else. With fast jumping kids and crude artificial light, one needs all the help they can get. The camera’s output at ISO 800 and 1600 was not to be faulted, and despite struggling with the fastest and most brutal spins and take offs, the AF globally did capture most of the moments.
I’ve been shooting this baby for the past 5 years. I had interest in photography before, she turned it into a raging passion. I well intend to keeping on documenting her growth exactly the way I’ve done so far. It’s a photogaphic project, as well as a life one. And it makes for a lot of cool memories.
