Default Photographic Tools

Always handy to have a gray card and a white/black card while out on photo expeditions. Colour balance and exposure clipping is a thing of the past with these tools from days of film.

Of course, it helps if they stay still long enough to get your measurements for the scene.

Gray Card, our standard poodle Kula


And our new edition, Texas, a border collie for measuring hilights and shadows.


We've known Tex since he was a pup and life has arranged for him to come and live with us. He's a bit older but is still focused on frisbees, balls…

The first shot of Kula is a classic thoughtful intelligent look of a smart breed. The second two of Tex convey the focus and readyness to play like it is his job. They say when you photograph animals well their personalties show through and you've done an excellent job at that.

What lens did you use?

Thanks for the comments. I have tried to capture the poodle's silly streak but she just bounces too fast for the PL1 to follow. And even when she strikes a "thoughtful" pose, it is usually only for a moment. Having a border collie in our lives again is fun, they are focused on play and will do anything to get you involved. They are a fun pair

Reminds me of my miniature Sheltie I had years ago, a very smart dog and never even thought of leaving the yard. Sadly she had to be put away due to cancer. A very sad day indeed.
