My son Mark has "man flu" and I find a great way to keep him occupied is to tether the camera to Capture One Pro 8 on my Mac and allow him to shoot selfies controlling it all through the Capture Pilot iPhone app.
Yesterday we went a little further, adding a grey background, strobes, and some reflectors. Stopping every few shots so he can check them on Daddy's computer.
He shows great interest in pressing buttons and seeing a picture come up on the screen - it's a start, he's not 2 yet. Although I wish he hadn't dropped the camera!

Since the 'problems' with the birth of my son almost 2 years ago, I've neglected all my friends over here on G+ I hope for that to change next year. I will be making more 'Daddy time'. I'll wish you all a very happy, and productive new year and hope to catch up with many of you soon :)
WELCOME TO "THE GATHERING CIRCLE" CHRISTMAS EDITION!!
Year 2014 is coming to its end and once again I want to thank you all for your nice, positive and kind comments, for your support and just for being there, day by day and week by week.
It's been a while now since I first posted on Gplus and since I began with my "Gathering Circle" Promotion and many people come and go but you are always here no matter if it's raining, snowing or the sun is shining.
For the good and the bad. No matter if I post a flower or a girl levitating you stop by and say hi.
You are friends because you always give and never ask... I know who you are and this post if for you all.
Sometimes I can respond you all one by one and some other times I can't but I want to let you know I truly appreciate you're making this wonderful trip with me and I feel your presence.
I hope you all had a wonderful year 2014 and I wish you the best from my heart for the new year 2015. I am glad I went through this year with you all and remember you are not alone and that there is a ship called "The Gathering Circle" where there will always be a place for you. (As long as you share the circle LOL... joking)
Seriously, big THANK YOU and big HUGS for you all my friends... take care, don't drink too much and enjoy life. Love you guys! ;-)

My FB Profile:
I'd like to enhance the quality of this circle by including only profiles with a person behind. If you choose to add the circle (which is up to you as always), I want it to be a nice experience, I don't want to flood your stream with ads or spam, that is why I weekly review the circle. Should you find any Copyright Infringer at any time, please, provide proper evidence and let me know ASAP in order to remove and ban the user. We support interaction and friendship not robbery!
THANK YOU GUYS for all your plusses & shares, and for being there day by day, it is highly appreciated!
Would you like to be in the next one and be part of the FUN? Just follow these simple steps:
1.- Plus the post.
2.- Share the post publicly in your own stream.
3.- Please leave a comment so I am fully aware of your participation.
4.- Please follow me.
1.- I am promoting and sharing this circle in my stream so, please do the same from your side. Do not share it in your "Circle Sharing" page, use your stream.
2.- In order to keep "The Gathering Circle" as "clean" as possible from spammers, aggressive business pages or profiles who don't share anything else but spam, ads or just circles please be aware that I will directly remove and block anybody asking for inclusion and meeting any of these cases:
A) Your profile or page mainly has circles. I'd like to include in my circles people who, at least have something to say or post, I can't understand why a profile or page just post circles and nothing else, not a single picture, opinion or whatever, please say something, I'd like to see there's a person behind. This is a gathering between people, not circle pages.
B) Your page or profile mainly has spam links to some kind of business where they you lend money or stuff like that.
C) Your page or profile mainly doesn't have anything else but spam, ads or links to commercial sites.
D) If you crop, modify in anyway, remove signature or upload someone else's picture as your own you will be automatically removed from my circles, banned and reported.
Nobody can surf all the posts in every profile and check uploads continuously so I'd appreciate your help detecting wrongdoers in order to quickly block & remove them from my circles.
Those of you helping me in this task may be included in a special circle of "Circle Moderators". People included in this special circle will automatically be added to "The Gathering Circle" promotion every week. ;-)
E) People creating and selling their own stuff like their own Porcelain or Ceramic creations will still perfectly fit in the circle, I like promoting artists creating their own stuff, that is what we photographers also do anyway. I just want to keep away the spammers who flood our streams with lots of annoying ads and we all know how these profiles look like. ;-)
I want this circle to be more a community, a gathering than just a bunch of people who doesn't know each other.
Thank you very much indeed for your friendship and cooperation. One Circle for all and all for one Circle! ;-)

just found two old PK mount teleconverters I'd forgotten I had in a cupboard. They were both broken, but have managed to get one working, and the other can be used as a macro tube ;)
These shots taken with Canon 600D and Chinon 50mm f/1.4 film lens connected with the converters :-D
