Badlands and Black Hills trip

We drove through  South Dakota after my brothers wedding in Colorado this year. It had been awhile since I had been to South Dakota and it was really cool to see something that I remembered as a child.

Pancho At the Dog Park

I spent some time on Saturday morning playing with my new Sony Nex 5T. I wanted to try and get some motion shots of pancho running around at the Dog park with the 50-200mm zoom lens. I don’t know if I’m a fan of the autofocus. I like having the touchscreen to quickly select a point to focus on but for more detailed shots it was tough to get the right focus point. It will take some getting used to. I think I still prefer manual focus with metering in red. The camera has much better picture quality than I’m used to. All of my older photos tend to look overprocessed in an attempt to cover up for poor image quality and the goal with the new camera is to shoot with a more mature, natural style.

Teko, originally uploaded by rPawela.

Here’s a shot of Teko from My Canon G7. I did some color adjustments with photoshop got a pretty good light burst by blocking the flash a bit with my finger.

Unfortunately in April Teko was having some health issues and we found out she had cancer in her liver, spleen, kidneys, and lungs. It was too late to do anything so we had to put her down.

Rest in Peace Teko. We Love you so much.
