Re: Coronavirus time...

Re: It Was a Matter of Time

Thanks Yildiz. Yes, the wood chips at the playground were the perfect background for Cheerio. Makes her eyes stand out. You read that right, Cheerio. Her name derives from the fact that whole grain Cheerios were the only thing she would eat when we brought her home. She has since moved on to regular...

Re: Sigma 17-35 and Sony A99M2

One thing I notice about your work is that you are not shy about discussing your technique. I don't recall the same passion for composition. Is th...

It's the lens.
She really isn't that cute.

It Was a Matter of Time

before my wife had to get another dog. She made it 3 months after our last had passed. The signs were there. Interacting with the dogs in our neighborhood. Then checking out designer breeds on her phone. And then it came. There was a puppy in Eastern PA that she wanted to investigate. Soft words for...

I have found that the wider the lens, the closer the subject. But if you can't get close to the main subject, then you must have something interesting in the foreground. The last image gets pretty darn close to my way of seeing the world. This, of course, begs the question of whether my way of seein...

Re: DC by Night

Thank you both for the advice. It sucks that Lightroom has forced this choice.
The upside is that I get better from the beginning.
Time to get to work.
