Sony RX100 Black & White : Camera vs Sil...

I love this new Sony RX100, it’s a fantastic little camera.  I’m impressed with the quality and that is saying a lot since my other camera is a Nikon D800.  The D800 does spoil you with pixels and huge dynamic range, and you really notice the advantage when you start processing raw files from another camera.  However, the RX100 takes infinitely better images when I leave the big camera at home because it doesn’t fit in my pocket. This post is just showing three images from the RX100,  I was shooting in RAW+JPG in black and white mode.  The first image is straight from the camera.  I used default settings, but you can...

Another batch of puppies and dogs available for adoption from Vancouver Animal Control. You can see the animals they have available at PetFinder.com (not just dogs but rabbits, lizards, and at times even more strange things).  You can also see previous shelter dogs I photographed here.  Don’t buy a pet through Craigslist or other online sources, adopt a pet from your local animal shelter....

Merry Christmas

No holiday season would be complete without dressing up the dogs. Jammie is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, and despite the look on her face is happy to be Santa’s Little Helper.  Cedric is a mix and is grumpy about the whole situation.  He complies as he knows there are cookies involved for being a good dog. Shot in fairly low light with a Nikon D800, Nikkor 50mm f/1.8G lens at f/2.8, ISO3200, 1/100s.  Processed in Lightroom and...

When needed, I try to help out at the local animal shelter (Vancouver Animal Control) by taking photos of their dogs available for adoption.  I believe the quality of the photos makes a difference in the dogs adoption so I’m happy to help out when I can.  It helps me and helps the dogs.  You can see the animals they have available at PetFinder.com (not just dogs but rabbits, lizards, and at times even more strange things).  You can also see previous shelter dogs I photographed here. Yesterday, I went to the shelter to photograph a litter of puppies.  They look like little polar bears, so damn...

Nikon D800 Macro with Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 VR

Today I got my Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 VR lens back from a friend who borrowed it.   Since I haven’t used it for a while I decided to bring it with me on my beach walk at Acadia Beach in Vancouver.  It was a cold morning and I was hoping to get some interesting macro shots of frost but I didn’t find any.  I did take a few photos but I’ll have to try another day to get some frost. All shots hand-held, ISO800, processed in...
