Thank you so much for your generous comments about my pic of Leonard.  It was just one of those lucky things but I learned something very valuable (to me, at least).  I had taken a short video of him and he didn't know it.  Then I taught myself how to capture the exact pose and turn it into a still shot.  You've probably known about that forever but I didn't.  Also, because he didn't know I was doing the video I was able to capture a very good shot of him which seems to me much better.  Again, thanks a lot - you're great!

You are certainly learning alot about your new camera. That is awesome, Diane... I'm proud of you.

I have never done much with videos --and that is an area I need to explore sometime.

Well you learned something I never even knew about Diane! I love taking pictures when the subject has no idea, you get the most genuine moments that way. I have one of my grand daughter that's my absolute favorite, and she had no clue. Awesome!
