Dog Blog Post #353: Well, it seems Zachary's desire for a rematch was fulfilled today. The Daily Shoot assignment was...
Make a photograph that features a grid of some sort today.
... and while I desperately tried to think of something novel, nothing came to mind. And so, out came the chess board once again. I did vary the game a bit, deciding that perhaps Zachary would rather try his paw at checkers.
He does seem much more confident in the pose above (todays) vs. last time's surprise defeat...
Feeling lazy today (or rushed, if you want to put a good spin on it) I dragged the ottoman into the kitchen and set the chessboard up on it. I was so pleased with the height and general arrangement, that you will probably be seeing in again some time.
The was pure "Leave it!" + "Sit" when it comes to skills, and Henry was no where near the shoot. I only had 2 extra black cookies, and mishap would have been disastrous and I knew Zachary would leave the cookies be if I told him to, even if they were skittering all over the floor!
I actually like the previous shot a bit better, as it pertains the assignment. I like the position of the board relative to the camera better, as it brought out what shine there is in the old board. That said, I can't resist Zachary's happy face in this one. :)
Question: So what size of files do folks shoot? I've been shooting 3-6M jpegs (depending on the subject) and was contemplating going to the very best quality jpegs, which I believe pushes them up to 10-13M, but I don't know if it's worth it or not. My computer is older, and it already takes a few minutes to download from the camera to the hard drive. Just not sure it's worth it.
Any thoughts? Anyone out there shoot RAW?
