Behind The Lens

This image was taken on the ice at Shelburne Pond, Shelburne Vermont.
This image was taken at 5:07 PM on 2/10/12
This image was taken under natural light, during an overcast winter evening which provided beautiful diffused even lighting.
This image was taken hand held, using a Pentax K5 camera with a SMC Pentax FA 50mm f/1.4 lens, with an aperture of F/1.6 at a shutter speed of 1/1000th of a second with an ISO of 80.
A lovely winter afternoon on the ice at Shelburne Pond, I had taken my Shelties Oso and Carabella out for a walk with a new purchase of a FA 50mm F/1.4 lens to try out, and while watching my dogs romp and play, I captured this image of their lighthearted roughhousing.
I Used Photoshop CS 5 to process this image by adjusting the contrast, vibrancy and white balance of the image to make it seem a bit "cooler".
In my camera bag
I shoot using Pentax gear, using a K5 and K3 camera to capture images. I have a wide variety of both old an new glass, and I put as much into my bag as I can carry whenever I go out.
Always bring your camera with you! This is an image that was captured on the fly, as happens when dogs romp and play. I always try to stay on the same "level" as my dogs when I'm shooting them, as they are Shelties and are actually really rather small dogs, so by staying low and at their level, or shooting slightly up, they appear much larger than they really are!
