The Lucas Family in Nashville – Nikon S4100 Coolpix

July 30, 2012

My sister and her family visited us in Nashville last week.  I carried  Marlene’s little Nikon Coolpix S4100 for this trip.  Admittedly these are snapshots, but I think that it will illustrate what you can do with this fun little camera.  It does have a touch screen menu which takes some getting used to, but it works really well.

First up, my beautiful niece Sadie outside Ernest Tubbs Record Shop downtown.  This was snapped at dusk using the night/flash setting.  I think it performed really well letting us see some of the street scene while still lighting her up with the flash.

Please notice the brand new purse, this was a previous nights field trip to Opry Mills and they were BOGO, such a deal!  She was so happy to buy a couple of new bags to take to college with her and it was fun to see her excitement!  Plus, isn’t it so cute?  :)

No trip to Nashville is complete without a visit to “Music Row” to see the banners.  This is one of her favorites, so it was a photo op.  Note: best time to do this is on the weekend, far less traffic and stopping for these is so much easier.

At a concert in Gallatin, TN it was really hot that night!

OK, I have to admit I did a little (very little) post processing on these files.  I fixed some color and saturation issues, also softened the skin on those of us that would benefit from it.  Why?  Because I can!  I have to admit my personal choice is the Fuji X10, and I hope to add camera as my personal travel camera very soon.  The above two pictures were taken with the Fuji and I love it’s low light ability to make the images work no matter how tricky the situation.

Finally a family group shot of us with the Daily Jeffersonian from Cambridge, Ohio.  We did their family portrait and jumped in for one quickie of all of us.
