Dogs & Cats

Navi & Mighty, to be exact - my most co-operative models!

With my new understanding of exposure/aperture settings, I decided to set up the studio for a bit more practice. Navi was first up on the stool since she recalled getting lots of cookies there!

I WISH this shot had not been blurry - it would have been awesome!

Later I caught a few shots of Mighty on my desk. This gave me a chance to play with exposure, and since she doesn't move much (unlike the dogs, who can't hold still), I could do some longer exposures on her (since the room was dim) and still get sharp pictures.

I used f/4.2 on this one and focused on the eyes to make the face sharp and the paws and body soft.
