Guest Photographer: Olivia

Our nine-year-old granddaughter, Olivia, is here in Santa Fe with us; and she is using her new camera Vivitar Vivicam for the first time.  Because the instructions are minimal, we have yet to figure out how to correct and to eliminate the date from the photo. We posted her effort, nonetheless, because this portrait is typical of the people we see on the streets of Santa Fe during Indian Market: western-style shirt, cowboy hat, and bola necktie. Plus I think she's doing a great job of capturing images!

  2. You granddaughter should be very proud indeed, as I am sure you are. I think women are perhaps better at capturing portrait photos, perhaps because of their keener insight in to the personality and moods of others. Your granddaughter shows that talent at an early age.

  3. As good as Gran if not better.

    Re date:
    Push the Home button, select Setup, from that Menu Date, then set date and time correctly (otherwise it'll screw up your sorting order in iPhoto or similar) and then select "Off" to supress the dispaly on images.
    And don't forget that you have to reset the date when you get home. And for DST...
    $10 for this valuable training session, ta v much....

  6. He looks really friendly. Maybe you can crop out the date stamp until you figure out how to get rid of it?

  10. Regarding your comment on my site today, I was probably imprecise in identifying the group as family, as I think it was more than one family and the number of children probably included cousins, not just brothers and sisters.
