Re: Nikon D5100

I have a canon eos 650D with a 50mm 1.8

I used it at a dinner party. the 50mm was a bit to much there, i was way to close on my subject, so if you want your children full in frame, and not standing more then 3 meter away i do not know if you want a 50mm. for a nice shot of them full on the frame, and a bit other objects on the photo to tell a story i find you need more then 3/4 meter standing away from them.

appart of that, i was still forced to use my flash light. I need to say the light at the party was not the brightest in the world, but it was decent light, still my f1.8 could not do the job without a flash. so, if your kids are running around, I think you can forget it to take a nice image

well, this is just my opponion.

I am still a beginner in photograpy. but because you are also new on the DSLR world, you will face probebly the same problems, and i think you don't want to wait untill your children get 25 before you can take that nice shot of them
