A lesson in being preparedI half-heartedly took my camera bag around to some friends with the intention of seeing if I could get some shots of their Pomeranians. They have three, a mum, Bonnie, and her two puppies, Hamish and Willow. I've featured a shot of Hamish before but didn't really have a decent one of Willow.
But being half-hearted, I didn't check my gear before I left and when I got there and dragged out my bag I found I didn't have any batteries in my flashgun —doh!
Anyway, the only thing to do was to bump up the ISO to the max (it was late evening) knowing I'd get noisy images, but what do you do? The on-camera flash casts harsh shadows so that was a no-no, so I din't really have any choice. Even at ISO 1600, the colour one was f5.6 at 1/13th second and the bw one was f5.6 1/6th of a second.
I'm so glad the lens has in-built image stabalization!
Anyway, without more ado, here are the shots that made it...

You know, getting up and opening the door for them. Getting up and letting them back in again. Getting up and following them to the patio doors when they seem to be asking you to look at something. Getting up and opening the door for them, letting them back in again... and so it goes on!
