Groups

We've recently had a new member of our family.  Her name is Dora and she is a Cocker Spaniel puppy born 13/02/13 so she is still quite young and very, very active.  People with little experience of Spaniels are surprised at just how active she is.  This makes training extremely hard because she has the attention span of a goldfish, well, slightly less than a goldfish actually.  In those rare moments of tranquillity when she is not tearing around the place or getting up to mischief, she seems to learn really quickly but seems to forget quickly as soon as something distracts her which can be something as simple as her own shadow.  I have already uploaded several photos of her and there are likely to be lots more.

I very much doubt there are many people that will stumble across this and read this but for those that do, I wanted to explain that I shoot RAW.  Some may not know what this means and the simplest way to explain is that some cameras can output different types of file formats, most stick to the Jpeg format but some do give you the option of having the RAW file.  The Jpeg file is what you get after the camera has added all the little tweaks that it thinks you want such as colour saturation and white balance, the RAW file is all the data that hit the sensor.  For most people, their camera's Jpeg is fine, they get a perfectly good usable image with very little tweaking necessary.  With the RAW file however, I have to look at the image and decide how I want the white-balance, exposure etc.  This gives me much more creative freedom over the end result.  I'm not dictated to by the camera.  RAW files are extremely large so I have to be absolutely ruthless when it comes to getting rid of shots that did not come out how I wanted them and this makes me think more about the shot I'm about to take e.g. shutter speed, depth of field, iso.  My only regret with shooting RAW is that I did not do so sooner.

You're welcome. Sometimes I can be unsociable and forget. It's not intentional.

Thank you. I've got myself a new camera but we've had really poor weather pretty much since I got it. I'm hoping to get out more when the weather brightens up.
