Hey Guys,

This is a set that I took of an older Birmese Mountain Dog this weekend. It was done with the 5dii. Over-all, I was pleased. I have a bunch of photos taken of humans at ISO 2500 that are amazing. On another note, do the colors appear to bright and saturated, or just perfect? I can soften the brightness just fine...I am just trying to make sure that my monitor is 100% perfect again. :P

James

Those are really nice, I especially love the second one. I was thinking how nice the color was. Not at all flat and not at all overdone.

James,
Maddy is a Bernese Mountain Dog and she looks quite lovely. While the black looks a bit warm on my monitor, I'm not sure that's inaccurate. Many of the Berners I see have a lot of brown in their black.

Nice series of portraits.

"Maddy is a Bernese Mountain Dog and she looks quite lovely. "

LOL, I new that! I am just horrible with spelling and that seemed closest. :P

Thanks for the feedback. Oddly enough, when I look at things on my monitor in IE or Mozilla, they look warmer than they do in Photoshop. It is an oddity I have been trying to understand recently. I upgraded my Mozilla after Jim mentioned that he thought it could be a calibration issue with the program, but I see no difference. Right now, for example, I am looking at them side by side between PS and both Mozilla and IE. The colors look perfect in PS, but almost radioactive red in IE and Firefox.

James,
quick question: have you had a chance to play around with the video capability and what do you think of it?

Hey Jim,

The video capability is a nice tool. I have not started playing with video files yet and editing. Honestly, I am not even sure where to start with that.

BTW, of interesting note...it is JUST my desktop where it is a problem. I am looking at the photos on my laptop and they look spectacular.

James

PS Jim, another issue with the video...trying to figure out how to make it part of the business. I think it might be easier with what you do, i.e. pet show photography. I can only imagine how nice it would be, for example, to have a video of Dot in addition to a few photos!

I'm not positive, but I think you actually have to turn on color management in FF3 for it to have any effect. I've not used it in quite a while so I'm not sure.

Yes, it would be cool to have a video! I want one of those flip video things.

Anyhow, as far as color management. I can't get CS3 calibrated correctly. I have tried and it has been a problem both on the desktop and the laptops. Windows and firefox show correctly, but no matter how I tweak the settings, CS3 is off. I have been on NAPP forums trying to get it figured out and nothing has worked yet. I just don't screw with my color!

Nice shots of that Birmese, I was expecting a cross between a Birman and a Burmese. Looks like you are putting the new camera to good use. Love the colors and the way you capture the 'expression' of the pup. My only nitpick is that I don't like the shadow under the chin on the last two...looks more like a dirty chin than a shadow. Thanks for posting.

How have the larger images affected your workflow? Is your computer holding up under 21mp images?
