Here are some outdoor pictures from the long holiday.

(Given that temperatures have hit the 90's, humidity is up, while rainfall is down, I'm creating a "summer" tag to use.)

Subject:Dog Park, March 9th 2007
Time:12:43 am
Last Friday my girlfriend and I took the puppies to the dog park. They had a great time, but the dwindling light made photography a real challenge.

The shooting conditions were difficult -- sunset and after sunset. The horizon after the sun had gone down.Collapse )

On with the puppy pictures!Collapse )

Lessons Learned:
  • More light is a good thing
  • Flash may not have been a bad idea for some of the closer pics.
  • While the S3 is capable of ISO 400 and 800 for low light shots, the results are mixed.
  • Anything less than 1/60th of a second still shows the puppy as a blur.

I'm happy with the results. Almost 500 pictures were taken, and over 3 dozen were "keepers" -- far more than I expected.

There are 30 more pictures in the gallery!

Subject:New camera
Time:11:32 pm
I've been working with my new camera: a Canon Powershot S3 IS. The A520 is a good camera, but the S3's features really sold me.

It's a lot harder to use; where the A520 would just say "no", the S3 will at least try. It's a very different beast.
