A few days ago I got my best pictures of my little princess so far:

I'm falling in love with the Sony FE 85mm f 1.8, it has the subject separation of the telephoto end of my Tamy 70-180mm f 2.8 but the wideness of the short end. It's just nom nom nom delicious bokelicious.

At this point, she lost her steam and smile so I stopped "fooling around" with her to get images. The AF-C and Tracking are better than everything I had before BUT not significantly (10 to maybe 25% faster) but only if I shoot at 10 FPS rather than, the limited, 6 FPS (but I got more keeper because of the statistically more pictures at the higher FPS. But this is just an initial impression, I need more testing and time to get comfortable with the lens (for pet portraits and action).

My Nuggie's birthday present has arrived:

An LTT Wag Hoodie. It might be a bit too small or she's not very confident wearing clothes. Hopefully, with a few months of usage and a couple of washes, it will loosen up a bit more. Bright orange inside, a doggie bags pocket on the back, a roomie hoodie with a pin to the back, double stitching edge and a hole for a lead.

Going to go out today and see how well it fits her. I am hoping to get the matching WAN Hoodie for my birthday this October:

"Can I have a hug?" The neighbour's new little puppy peeping through the hole in our fence.

Went out for our usual walk and she had so much fun she was mud head to paw... until we run into the floods and she turned into my little submarine.

The little wet fluffer still didn't stop her from having fun.

I think there was a flash flood because the fields had so much water she was going DUN DUUUUN DUUUUUUN DUUUUUUUUUUN.

Hey Ovi... your doggie action shots are really good.

Ovi, I recall there was a fellow at the other site that had made so much progress with his pet portraitures that he was getting to go full time. See if he is available for online questions. Have you asked if anyone here can offer any insights?

Not at the moment. I have been getting more comfortable and confident with the Sony setup and I have started exploring ideas with more success in the results but I have more to go and practice to do. (My life has started to pick up and move forward since the start of the year but problems are forcing me to make priorities when it comes to time and finances, most of my attention and effort right now is losing weight for the next 9 months and other health issues. My free time is spent with my dog and walking/hiking.) I am a patient person and I can wait to go full-time when I am debt free, this year is the healthy year.

All the best with this, Ovi.

I have also been deliberately losing weight since Christmas. Have lost 6.6 Kgs over the 6 months. It's bloody hard! Cut out chocolate, all sweet things, all biscuits, and cut our meal size at dinnertime by about one third. Only another couple of kilos to go until I'm the same weight I was at around 25 y.o. - 75-76 Kgs. Of course, the muscle:fat ratio is markedly different ... :( .

Unfortunately, full cream ice cream is an essential part of my diet (total colectomy in 2001), and the necessity for high calcium intake from ice cream and cheese because of my osteoporosis, which has gone backwards in the last two years :( . I sometimes overindulge, which usually shows on the scales the next day.

Losing weight is probably one of the most important improvements we can make to our health outcomes (assuming that we're overweight to start with ... ).

Being debt free is every bit as good as not being overweight ... ;) .

And BTW many of your doggy photos are excellent.

Just got a Nikon 70-210/4 lens and tried it out on the Fuji S3 Pro in the backyard.

The first 2 are RAW files processed in Lightroom and Topaz Photo AI
