A number of greyhounds were bundled up against the dry, brisk wind that went through the vendor tents. Greyhounds aren't as resistant to either heat or cold as, say, your typical dog. You'll sometimes hear it said in greyhound adoption circles that if you're cold, then your greyhound is cold, too. On the other hand, I've seen where greyhounds who live in northern climes are just fine running and playing in snow during the winter, and jackets aren't worn until the temperatures drop to near freezing.
I wandered from tent to tent looking for faces to photograph.Here are a few that I saw:
I haven't gotten around to fixing any of these yet. I used center-weighted metering more than I used matrix metering for the first time, I think. For dogs I like how it's better at bringing out the eyes. None of the metering choices I have (matrix, center, spot) are perfect for every lighting situation. I just have to be a little more aware of how the light is, and what mode will give me what I want. Most of the time, up till now, I use matrix. But with greyhounds I tend to have a problem with the eyes being way underexposed when using matrix. In other situations matrix does a good job of exposing the eyes properly. I'm still learning, but it's fun.
