In the midst of all this, Bodie, the 100 lb. Labrador caught some sort of allergic reaction..to... grass?..and needed antibiotic and a daily foot wash. Now, as I age, wrestling an 11.5 year old 100 pound dog for a foot wash is not that easy since he is 80% lame already and with a foot infection that caused a further limp..Oh. He can be so stubborn. Finally I had to yell at him, "HEY..stop it. I am trying to help you!" I think that this is almost cured...7 days in from infection. Today was true spring. I saw Bodie run a bit.
In the meantime, photo assignments using lighting. We are learning about light balance. I have no patience for using white balance while shooting, but at least I know the button is there and how to adjust.
Some experiments to follow.
