Mini Militant Models for the Camera

Behold, The Boo!

In this picture, Mini Militant gets down to academics on his new desk. For a small little man, he's got surprising crayon dexterity.

I'm sorry about the picture quality. Mini Militant is wise to cameras now - and squeezes shut his adorable brown eyes before the flash goes off (leading to some very unfortunate pictures!)

The trick is to take them with the flash off - but when it's dark outside, the result is the sepia-tinted picture above!

The other problem between digital cameras and the old fashioned film ones is that when you press the button on a digital SLR camera, there's often a delay before the shot is taken - and that split-second can make all the difference when you're dealing with a little man as wriggly as ours!

I think the answer probably lies with purchasing a more advanced digital camera than ours - something like a Nikon Coolpix, a Canon PowerShot or a Panasonic Lumix. However, given our 'robust' lifestyle (and the average life expectancy of our camera equipment) this isn't an investment we're willing to make at the moment!

So expect plenty more pictures of Mini Militant - but don't expect them to be very good!
