    was testing the 28-210mm Vivitar, and take these pictures of my little neighbor, an adorable but very naughty boy.The bukeh is soft, so I like the result.

    ISO400 1/50s F/3.5

    Hi Freddytto,
    you've caught the kid's expressions really well !

    The bokeh really suits portraiture.

    What zoom focal length did you use? At 1/50 sec, a safe maximum focal length would be from 28mm to say 40mm. If you zoomed more toward telephoto you will need a higher shutter speed to avoid camera shake (but this might not be possible because of the indoor low light)... so you did very well.

    Your first photo is very good and takes a very steady hand to shoot that at 1/50 - and I also like the composition better. The second photo has camera shake so it looks a lot softer (see the ridge of the nose and the boy's left eye has several catchlights).

    They are both very good, but the captured facial expressions do not describe the title 'naughty,' because those photos show that he is very well behaved... :)

    Great shot buddy, I think you really captured the emotions of the particular moment.

    thanks friend, and l use 35mm 1/50s, f/3.5 the place was a little dark to be honest so l used ISO 400 proved a major success and as for the second photo it shake the camera a little bit,
