Testing out some gear

I have been playing with the idea of upgraded my Pentax Optio WG-2 waterproof camera from the Pentax to an Olympus Tough TG-2 , and my friend was kind enough to lend me his. I decided to do some test shooting with the pups, these were taken in the “pinhole” mode which I normally wouldn’t use but they turned out pretty fun.



Silly shots of the pups, Luna has so many “pretty” photos I thought this one needed to be shared. Her nose is always going, you would think she was a hound dog, not a bird dog.


Playing around with some different angles.



SO glad I captured this expression, it’s a very typical “look” but it’s not easy to capture the expressions she gives as they are so fleeting when the camera is out.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANot bad with such strong backlit light.  Overall I was happy with this camera, I didn’t get a chance to test it out in the water as we had lots of rain so no paddling or swimming due to high water levels.  I like that it will offer me more manual control options as I take this camera out quite a bit when exploring with the dogs.  I went ahead and ordered it, now I just need to find an owners manual and sell my little pentax waterproof.
