Hi Everyone a few shots of my daughter taken with my new to me Pentax KR using my F50mm 1.7. DOF a bit too shallow but didn't want to use the flash and wasn't
sure of the high ISO capabilities of the KR which i have since found are pretty good.

Congratulations - on your beautiful Daughter and the photos, I think No.2 is particularly good - the focus is spot on and the soft "feel" is lovely

My youngest was born 20 years ago today, how old do I feel

Congratulations!

I hope you dont mind me adjusting the levels in all of them, the colour balance in the third and the framing in first and third.

congratulations! lovely shots, I particularly like the angle in the first one. I'm looking forward to my own chance for the same sort of shots in the near future, any tips? I'm thinking my 35-70 might be the best choice of lens since I already know the K5-II has excellent high-ISO capabilities.

TBH, when my daughter was born I bought a Pentax Espio Mini especially for the occasion. Something discrete and worry free when you are stressed and elated! The last thing you should be worrying about is a DSLR.

Congratulations! She will be your main model for the next few years

I wouldn't use flash as well, and they all look fine for me.

Thanks for the comments guys and the tweaks Ken as for the lens i'm sure the 35-70 would be fine i used my 50 simply for the speed and sharpness.

I just made sure i had the camera pretty much ready to go and left the pics until the commotion had settled and we knew
mother and baby were fine.

Congratulations! You'll be glad in years to come you got some nice photos of the occasion, I think for someone who knows how to use one well, a DSLR is a must for an event like this.

I agree Jonathan if i wasn't going to use the best equipment i had for this occasion it really wouldn't make sense having photography as a hobby

Good first step but I've managed that one on my own :p

Thanks for the tips Malross, and the inspiration.
