    Tell me what you think...if you like it. :)

    Here are a few pictures I took of my dad's dog last weekend. I was experimenting with my new flash I bought. I thought I would give the wireless capabilities a whirl. I thought I would throw them to the wolves here and see how they faired.

    By the way I was taking these pictures of him by myself, so it was quite interesting tying to get him to cooperate. In the first picture I was able to get him to stare at the red light on the flash (I was holding the flash in my left hand as I took the pic with my right hand). It's kind of funny because he thinks it is his laser dot that we play with all the time.

    I think you did a good job. But, what do I know I though some of my shots were good. LOL

    Thanks Frank! I have looked at a few of your pics on the flickr.com account and I think you have a lot of good pics on there!! By the way I couldn't get the photobucket.com link to work.

    Lightbulb Tightened up on the subject

    The images are well done ... but on the second, I went for a more cropped look.

    A little more intimate ... it makes the dog appear .. more important, that way.

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    The first shot is spot on. Good focus, nice exposure and nice toning. I'd have done a bit of PP to darken the eye, but apart from that, one out of three with animals is not bad.

    Not too bad IMO. The lighting is a bit on the harsh side. I think some shots during the daytime would yield some nice pictures.

    Nice shots. If you look at my flickr stream you will see my dogs are one of my favorite subjects.

    I really enjoyed the head on one, with the nice bokeh.

    The third one is natural light but, as you can tell it was starting to get dark fast. I agree with Don on the second one about cropping. It does look better without all of the concrete in the background. And again, these are all spur of the moment shots and I was by myself.
    Thanks for the feedback.
