hi guys, please don't get sick of me. I am practicing ( and getting frustrated while doing so!)! LOL. I played tonight with my puppy who lovingly indulges me every time. I upped the ISO to ISO 800 and also turned on more lights. F 5.6 and shutter speed at 1/2 sec, which still seems low to me but this was the best result I got. This is not a shot for composition, just pure technique, as I am wanting to get good at the indoor, dark outside shots. I believe I used manual focus in this one. She is looking at a treat laying in front of her. I wish she had lifted her head a little, but like I said, this was just a practice my settings.
