I purchased my DSLR camera so that I could take quality, high resolution pictures which could preserve our family history.
There was no guarantee on the camera box that wiggly two-year-old subjects would cooperate. There also seems to be an unwritten rule among the younger set that physical stillness must always be accompanied by a firm frown.
Some of these problems could be remedied if I would turn on the flash and increase my shutter speed.
Flash is for wimps.
