PostSubject: Photos with my new camera   Mon Jul 04, 2011 9:05 am

I recently was gifted a Nikon D70, my first digital SLR camera! It is BRILLIANT! The lens I have with it I can get JUST close enough to the animals to take good photos. (just wait til I get a zoom lens!)

Anyway, I've been experimenting and thought I'd share some of my photos. All horse photos (of course!) for now. Wink

Some of you might have already seen these pictures on Facebook.

I've been trying to get good photos of these two ever since I got them. Black horses are HARD.

Great job Kristie! The Barbaro and the Jumping Fjord are very nice with the sky background! D-70's great (I use a D-90)!
So I'm guessing the black dog is a lab mix? What is the other(Pitbull/Beagle/Lab)?
He reminds me of a Hanoverian Hound.
You look great up on your horse(What breed?) and your property looks very serene!

Thank you!

The Lab is mixed with English Setter. Her name is Hotdog. The other one is Ollie and he's half Beagle and half English Bulldog. And my pony is a Norwegian Fjord. :)

What a precious gift cheers

And if anyone deserves it and can benefit from it, it is you Very Happy
So many exceptionel photoes you already made !
You are so right, black horses are almost impossible to "shoot", but here they are Very Happy

He, he, I also love the picture of Jolly Ollie and Hotdog, - even if Ollie looks not-so-jolly, I suppose it won`t take long before he is happy again Wink

WONDERFUL photoes, -I look forward to seing more sunny

Ok, I fixed better footing and props for my Fjord jumper, but I'm afraid the sky today is grey instead of blue. Sad But I'm happy with it and think is overall an improvement!

And to keep this Schleich related, here is a closeup of the bunny.

Those are lovely photoes, Kristie !The gray sky gives a nice, quite background Very Happy

Your new camera is awfully good, - but still, it is the person behind who makes the picture, always your sence of angle and comosition Wink

Nice shot! Actually, grey/overcast is better for shooting, since it helps defuse the light(So less shadows etc.). I love shooting on overcast days!
Just out of curiosity, are you on the east or west coast?

O.K., so maybe you'll get some nice overcast & cloudy summer east coast days to do some nice photography with! Keep shooting!
