Red face My camera experiment. Lotsa Reggin.

I've been having some trouble photographing reggin in the sun. He is WHITE and way to bright in the pictures. I loose a lot of detail. I took some advice from a few of you and decided to mess with the exposure, aperture, and shutter speed.

The first set I underexposed the pics. 0.7 was not enough, so I used 1.0. The results were ok, but not great. The second set I used aperture priority mode, and I got the best results with that. In one picture I used shutter priority mode and the results were way bad, lol.

I had to look in my manual to even figure out how to change the settings. I always have it on "P".

I used a Nikon D40 by the way.

First set...

I like this one.


A little bright.


Chewing his nylabone! He never gives up on those bones.


Fetching his bone.



I have a lot more...

One of skittles. He likes to come outside with reggin and I and just hangout in the yard.


OK. These are on aperture priority mode. You can see more detail in these. The sun was VERY bright.

I guess now looking back I could have set the exposure comp even more than what I did. I was trying to hurry at the time. Eh.

You got some really good shots out of that batch. This is the best thing to do with any camera, is just to play around with it. I can't tell you how many pics I hvae that are just playing with exposures and settings and stuff.

Good job!

Do dogs learn not to get tangled on zipline type things? My dog manages to get tangled up on a simple 6 foot lead sometimes, I'm amazed that other dogs have figured out the whole "this is string..don't twist it through your legs" concept!
