My wife takes better pictures than I do?

My wife has never been in to photography much. She can appreciate a good picture but she isn't one for handling a camera.

I love cameras so I wanted to convince my wife to start shooting pictures too. She really liked the white GF1 here in Japan so I got her one with the 14-42mm kit lens.

We spent the last few days in Gifu and Nagano where she used the camera for the first time.

She is an absolute beginner, I showed her in the morning how to zoom the lens... yes she thought it was auto zoom and how to compose, focus then shoot.

Below are a few of the pictures she took, raw files exported as jpg (80% quality and resized) but no post processing at all.

I was surprised as she took some pretty good pics.

After seeing her own pics suddenly she likes photography and we're heading in to Tokyo in a couple of weeks to take more pictures hang out in town.

Good investment that little GF1!
