Nine Months Today by fbailey

Nine Months Today

Been really busy today so no time for outdoor pics. Took this in the house with the new lens - not as easy to focus with it as I'd hoped, especially when the subject keeps moving!
She is gorgeous!

@4rky Don't know where the last 7 months have gone to - the house is being systematically demolished and my hair is greyer! Puppy's fine:)

@huvesaker She would love to - this silly girl thinks everyone in the human race is wonderful and loves every person she meets unreservedly - quite unflattering really!

She looks very adorable. More importantly, tell us all about the lens!

@peadar Big learning curve for me at least Peter. Because you can use f2.8 that much more light comes in, especially when you up the ISO but I'm sure you will know - how do you change the shutter speed with a manual lens without taking the lens off and adding the kit lens and changing to S mode? Is there a way at all? If I put this lens onto S, the camera just says 'no lens attached'. Do enjoy battling with lenses, one day I might know what I'm doing!

lovely shot - certain amount of energetic mischief there
May 10th, 2019  
Phone me about shutter speed, might have a solution for you...
She doesn't LOOK like a demolition squad!

You and your new lens have done a wonderful job with this. Gorgeous. Fav
May 10th, 2019  
Such a beautiful image.
May 10th, 2019  
@fbailey Felicity, surely if you have the camera set to full manual you can adjust all the settings at your pleasure? I'm not a Nikon man, but I'll have a look online.
May 10th, 2019  
Fantastic portrait of this beautiful dog Fav
May 10th, 2019  
@fbailey I think you have to select full manual mode and adjust aperture and shutter accordingly?
May 10th, 2019  
I adore Dulcie but there is a challenge in her expression!
May 10th, 2019  
She is gorgeous! A lovely portrait!
May 10th, 2019  
Fantastic portrait!

@peadar Peter, thank you! I don't really know my way around my camera settings too well. When I started to venture out of Auto, a photographer told me to set landscapes up at 200/f.5.6 and Vivid. That seemed to work quite well. When I played about with long exposures the internet told me to use SP and set the shutter that way. That worked not too badly either. Then when I got my first Manual lens and I wanted a long exposure, I thought I had to set to SP but of course the camera couldn't detect the lens. So I used the long winded method above. What a dummie - my only reasoning I can think of is that I always thought the shutter was the aperture because it let more light in and the little f stop was a bonus to let more light in too ... I am really embarrassed writing this, but if if helps any newbie out there who sees it, it's worth it! Thank you again, at least I won't have to swap lenses over in the future ... bet anyone who reads the above will be rolling about holding their sides with laughter, but hey, I've learned something today thanks to you:)
PS Am going to investigate on the web and attempt the manual, but if I can't work it out, can I ask you about flashes as well?

A great portrait shot of this cute looking dog.
May 10th, 2019  
@peadar Please disregard last sentence, sussed it!!
May 10th, 2019  
So sweet! What a cutie...fav!

beautiful felicity

@fbailey I use aperture priority on my manual lenses and control shutter speeds by adjusting the ISO on the camera and the aperture on the lens aperture ring !!! Jobs a good 'un. My only options for vintage lenses on my Sony is Aperture Priority or Manual modes !
May 11th, 2019  
@phil_howcroft I can't do this on my Nikon Phil - anything other than manual mode with a manual lens brings up the message 'lens not attached'
May 11th, 2019  
@fbailey have you googled it (or read your camera manual), there will be a setting / option in your camera menu setting to ignore the message
May 11th, 2019  
@fbailey i did a google, i don't think you Nikon has an option to override the message !!! Manual Mode !
May 11th, 2019  
Glad you are getting some tips re your lens. This is so sweet. Love her ears
May 11th, 2019  
cute fav
May 11th, 2019  
What a beauty!
May 11th, 2019  
So much to learn - will it ever end? No!! I guess that is part of the appeal. To learn how to shoot manual I made myself shoot only in manual for one year. Can't say I am an expert by any means but it did give me a bit of an understanding. Now I find it hard to shoot any other way!
Regardless, your photo is adorable - looks very expert!! Love the ears:)

Beautiful animal, such lovely eyes. Good work with your new lens.

Lovely portrait!

This is fabulous - looks like the dog just whisked around, ear cocked, to say "did you say you'd give me a treat if I posed for you?"
May 11th, 2019  
It’s a very nice portrait!
May 11th, 2019  
Super portrait!
May 11th, 2019  
ADORABLE!
May 11th, 2019  
Striking capture. Manual is a blast. 1- for flexibility and 2- for learning new things.
May 11th, 2019  
Love!
May 13th, 2019  
Wonderful portrait. She is beautiful. I am going to have to investigate an f2.8 lens. You should set up as a pet photographer! Just looks like butter wouldn't melt!
