Default FZ40 Dog Photos

I Took a few shots of the dogs today, using the fz40 at 80 ISO and trying to make the most of the low levels of natural light. These were all at very slow shutter speeds, fortunately the dogs were happy to pose quite still:

1. Zoe on the arm of the sofa



2. Roxy in her bed



3. Zoe at the window



4. Edited Composition

Thanks saly, the dogs are nervously waiting for a flooded-out friend to come stay with us; she has a HUGE dog...

What cuties! Beautiful colors on the photos; this camera really does extremely well with available light, doesn't it?

Stay safe!

Thanks csa; yes, if you can keep it steady for long enough it does really well. I looked at some of these at 100% and they had amazing detail.

We're safe, but we know numerous people who have houses that went under; some by 1 metre, some to the roof - either way the damage is massive.

Thanks Raghu,

They are mini foxies (miniature fox terriers)

We had Roxy first; our friends moved to New Zealand and so we inherited Zoe who matched very well

Mick-

You made the ISO 80 "formula" work very well, and got some very good captures. Congratulations. I am glad to hear that you and your family are safe from the Brisbane flooding.
