    cute



    and it brings us to todays lesson


    where to meter and how your meter works

    see how a couple of the pictures are severly overexposed in the backgrounds? This happens because the meter in camera is a reflective meter, metering the light reflecting off the subject. It turns whatever you meter to 18% (middle gray) in the overexposed shots, you metered off the dog itself, which is obviously not middle gray. The result is over eposure. Same thing would happen if your puppy was white, he'd be in a gray picture.

    You want to meter of things that should be your mid tones. Green grass, a dark blue sky, the palm of your hand, things like that are good.

    Theres no exif info, so I dunno waht camera you're using. On a black animal its difficult to show his texture without over exposing.Using fill flash or natural light and seeing the light is key.

    Now go take some more and play with the puppy :)


    Example of fill flash

    Great shots but I wouldn't even want to show these to my wife they are that bad.


    Bad in that she'd want another one. I wish mine were still that small...mine's 2 now and weights about 75lbs.

    aside from the over exposure there are a couple with focus problems...but overall nice pics :)

    and beautiful dog. I am considering getting a yellow or chocolate lab soon... either that or a GSD.

    ya i know they were over exposed, its hard with such a dark subject.

    im using a canon rebel, and i was using a flash (canon 580 ex) on most of those shots as well.

    Sorry, the pictures are terribly over-exposed and the focus is way off (how you missed that I don't know).

    You only get kudows for the cuteness factor.

    might try a full scene metering mode then.

    its just trial and error, and focus on the eyes. Just keep having fun with them and the pup
