I was home alone yesterday, and it was a nice day out after our first snowfall of the winter, so I was out for a hike with my camera and dog. I've got a pretty awesome backyard, just have to walk out my back gate to enjoy this. We were out and about for the whole afternoon, and had a great time.

Nice backyard Kristian.

Don't post much, as we stopped fostering dogs after we adopted our third black dog. This is Izzy, our second one. Staring at me to get me to throw the ring.

Thanks. I'm fairly fortunate to have what's called crown land adjoining my my property. It goes for many miles, and is there for anyone to use. There aren't all that many people living around here though, so it's not often I see other people out there. One time while out walking the dog we met a neighbour with his, so we figured we better hold onto ours until they got to know each other a bit. He said not to worry, she sometimes goes with him on his walks when we're not home, and the two dogs get along good.

Testing the K3III focus in a dark room. This is something the K5II always struggles with.

Trying out a strobe with my old dog Finn. Need a bigger room, really tight in the room we were in, but I like the effect.

I really like the effect. And I'm not talking about the drool either. Nice shot.

I have to agree. Looking exactly like my dogs do when I'm eating as they sit patiently with pleading eyes and drool!

Nice! I always have to remind myself for careful focus placement, the camera really wants to focus on the dogs nose.

Thank you both. I'm happy with how it turned out, it was with a 36" grided parabolic softbox, with a MS 300 godox strobe. Puts out nice light!

That's a good one. Well done. I like the soft fade to white around the edges. Would make a good print.

That's a great shot. I wish my dog would sit still for me long enough to do something like that, but I have to settle for longer lenses and staying further back.
Luckily she likes laying in the yard where I can see her from the deck. But as a bonus, I get more practice with my longer lenses.
This one was with my K3 and A 400 f5.6 at 1/180s and f6.7, and I was braced against the railing of my deck. Gotta love the in body stabilization.


This one was taken with my K3 and Tamron 55B 500 f8 mirror lens. It was taken well after sunset at 1/30s and ISO 1600 using my tripod as a monopod with the ball head loosened up to track the cat moving around. Being a cat, she's fairly lazy, and can sometimes be a decent model.


This one was taken with a body cap that I turned into a pinhole lens with a piece of a popcan. I was surprised the cat sat still as long as she did.

This is Mia. She was dumped at a Sydney pound at 3 years old. Fortunately the pound was able to identify the breeder and a rescue mission over a couple of hundred kilometres was organised. So she ended up with us. She was an incredible character and the most hyperactive Cocker we have had. She left us just shy of her 17th birthday. *istD, Sigma 70-200 APO.
