Hi everyone,

I'm a first time poster/Digital Camera owner. Here's a shot of my dogs that I took yesterday- it was one of my first shots ever.

What do you think?



I'm still getting used to my camera settings.

Nice shot. The one on the right certainly looks like he enjoys having his photo taken.

Hehe... you should have seen them with yellow eyes, I really don't think they liked the flash. Sorted that out with PSP, though. I have another on my comp where their eyes are half-closed. Looks really funny

That's strange my dog usually gets blue eyes.

Now do you see what I mean about them hating the flash?!

nice photo. about the flash, I try to avoid using it most of the time, I set my camera to a higher ISO and Im happy to have a little more noise than those horrible green or red eyed photos that you seem to get with animal shots.

well...that problem is solved in photoshop....

just select as best you can....the area around his iris (avoiding hair if possible)

and then go into "Variations" and add one click of the opposite color that the eyes are (across from it....may require hitting two colors...) and then switching to shadow and highlights....you most likely won't have to change the highlights though...if there aren't any

lol

or you could "hue/saturate" it....but that might be harder to get the dogs exact eye color....

Heh, thanks guys. To be honest, it was far easier to use paint and to add the little 'reflections' in their eyes (White paint ). Though, I'll trytaking photos without the flash in the future and see what that's like.



Thanks.
