A Pug Photo Post...


This week I am joining my friend Tricia at A Rosy Note for her first Photo Feature Friday Party !   I recently bought a new camera~ a Canon Rebel T2i ~ and have been having fun experimenting with it!  These are some of the first photos I took...one of my pugs, Sophie, is always a willing victim, and patiently puts up with me...  I used Creative Automatic, an auto focus that allows some flexibility with settings- I used a larger aperture, no flash, and the monochrome setting.  These are as taken, no adjustments...  It was fun to try something a little different than I usually do!  You can click on the images to enlarge them...





I'm enjoying experimenting with the camera and look forward to seeing what it can do!  Hope you come and join the party, too!  I'm looking forward to visiting the participants!



Until next time...
Linda

  5. Ahhh! She is adorable. I'm glad you're having fun experimenting with the settings. I got a couple of photography books for Christmas, but actually I learn more by just playing around.

I have had my T2I, so far I am pretty happy with it, if you need advice or how to's, shoot me a message. I take a lot of sooc photos but I love playing around with textures so I post process a lot of them too.

  10. Sophie is so cute Linda. I love her little face in that last photo. Your photos look so great! Don't you just love your new camera?! I've never tried that monochrome setting, I'll have to give it a whirl.

  11. Oh, I love pugs! I used to dogsit one named Hugo. I love Sophie's expression. Sophie is actually my nickname! ;-) It was my french name in high school and my mom and best friend still call me it, hee!
    I'm jealous of your new camera. My next camera will be a Canon (I have a Nikon D40.)

  20. Omg Linda, what a face she has! It's so full of character. You got some great shots of her. Mine just turns away when he sees the camera. I have to shot him she he's not looking! I have the same camera as you and I'm still learning!

  22. Your little pugs are so adorable. We are missing our little Rudy and are talking about finding another dog to keep Betsy company. Pugs are sure cute. I love your shutters. I've had some in every house we've ever owned. I have some white ones in the laundry room in the house we're in now. Love the wonderful things you got at the sale. I'm looking for some large (over 18 inches) letters for our playroom. If you ever find anything at a reasonable price let me know. (I'd like them to spell play) Thanks Mimi

  25. Sophie, you look so worried! Your pictures turned out very well Linda, clear, detailed, but of course you had the perfect subject! I may have to sneak a pug into the Boston household somehow - so cute! Ann

  26. OMG when I talked about getting a new camera on Friday it was a cannon rebel I think XS. I struggled through the magazine pictures and a friend who is a professional photographer came and gave me a crash course. I ended up doing most of my photo's on auto setting. Now that I have used it a little I will go back and read the manual.....Cute puppy, I would love to just squish him!!

  30. What a cutie!!!! I love her whiskers - so sweet.

    I just got a new camera a Finepix HS10 and I love it.... but I haven't at all got to grips with it yet.

    It only has an on line manual so I got it printed out at the printers and its about an inch thick!!!

  31. Oh my goodness! How cute! I especially like the last photo.

    My daughter moved back home last year and brought her Pug along. What love bugs they are! And very, very smart.
