Taking pictures of kids

I still don't know how much I would ever like taking portraits of kids. They are about the hardest subject I know of. But still, I captured this one of my daughter.

I had just got my new Canon 30D and was experimenting with the 17-85 mm lens that came with it. Both my kids really think cameras are cool, and Daddy's new one was no exception.

She kept following me around and we started playing a game where I'd take a picture of something and show her in the LCD. Well, at this moment, she really wanted me to take a picture of her. I've cropped my feet out, that's how close she was to me. The lighting worked great and her pose was unforced. A truly fun candid! Look guys -> I got the light twinkles in the eyes!
