The assignment for this afternoon was to take some pictures of my neighbour’s six week old golden retriever puppies. There were eight puppies and all have been sold bar two. A photographer’s life is not so bad, lying out in the sun and watching little bundles of fur playing and capturing the moments for posterity.
Obviously no flash today and a fast shutter speed. F6.5 at 1/350th gave plenty of depth of field. I wanted sharp and was able to shoot at 200 ISO. Finally I had chosen my 18 to 55 Nikon lens so that I could get down with the little critters and catch them at their level. They tire easily and quickly so time was of the essence.
I was able to produce 26 edited images within 2 hours from shoot through edit which can be seen on my Flickr Photostream .
Here are two of my favorites.
