Fun day yesterday. I received a text from Mark wondering if I’d like to me Charlie? That’s Charlie in the image above. A beautiful Golden Retriever female that is so full of energy and curiosity that some of it actually rubbed off on me.
Mark and Julia got Charlie a couple of weeks ago and this is my first time to meet her. After I played with her for a long time it was time to take some images. More about that in a moment as I have three images for today.
Mark has always loved dogs and now he has his own dog to share that love with. I decided to use the Nikon 105mm f1.4 lens for the shoot yesterday. I haven’t had enough practice with it and it shows. Even though I shot at f4.0 I still struggle with what’s in focus and what is not. Plus I am used to shooting with a zoom lens and so I sometimes forget that I have to move my feet. 🙂
The 105mm f1.4 is a great portrait lens but not so much for photographing a wild puppy.
Julia is also a dog lover and grew up with a dog in the family. I’m going to enjoy watching and photographing Charlie as she grows and matures.
Enjoy your day and be careful.
