Love my boy

He seems to be getting used to my camera. Either that or he loves me enough to want to stick close. So while Nina was nosing around on the perimeter, I grabbed some lovely shots of my big boy yesterday.  By the way, I shot these setting my own white balance using Kelvin rather than my ExpoDisc (which I still love) or the automatic white balance (never use) or any of the presets (nearly never use now) and did not have to adjust my white balance at all in post production. I’m really getting the hang of it, and it’s made my post-production so much easier!

Taken on a very cloudy day (post rain storm) at about 6pm at night. ISO640, 50mm, ~1/125 sec, f/1.4.  Kelvin set at 7050.






  1. You’re lucky. My 13-year-old girl is still afraid of the camera–well, maybe not afraid, but certainly disconcerted. We have a whole collection of pictures of her tail, tucked deep between her legs, as she slinks away from a pose.


    • Oh, I’m so sorry to hear that. Buddy doesn’t “like” the camera, but he does love me. Trust me, I have shot a zillion look-away images, hind ends, etc! I got a bit lucky yesterday!


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
