Day 2 of answers from #AskReagandoodle :
A lot of you asked for camera info, so today, I’ll focus on that. 😉📷 Settings for this image: ISO-500, 40mm, f-13, 1/640
CAMERA: For most shots, especially indoors, I use my Canon 5D Mark 111. It’s a pro level camera, and probs overkill, but I LOVE how well it does in low light. I’m able to bump the ISO really high with little grain - so to me, it’s worth it JUST FOR THAT. I have all the lenses 😬 but my go-to lens is the Canon L Series, 24-70mm f2.8. It’s fast, small, and light, and the 2.8 makes for great bokeh (that gorgeous background blur). Back to the part about it being small and light - I should add that the size & weight are relative. It’s light compared to the giant lenses, but still feels like I’m hauling around a brick. 😜 When I’m on the go, or don’t have the big camera with me, I use my iPhone 7 Plus.📱 SO impressed with the camera on that baby! I do videos with it too. It’s a powerful little thing. Again, “little” is relative. It’s huge for a phone, but tiny compared to a ‘real’ camera.
EDITING: Yes, I edit my pics before posting. What?? Isn’t that cheating? Nope. Just like most humans get dressed, brush their hair, and some even apply makeup before going out in public, I do the same with my images. I shoot in RAW, so I manually adjust pics for lighting and such before I even download them. Then, if they still need a little attention, I further adjust them in Photoshop. I’ve done it before, but I rarely let my pics go out in public without getting dressed first.👔 PHOTOGRAPHY SKILLS: I love taking photos and making images. Photography is my passion. It brings me joy. I’m basically a self-taught photographer. I’ve never considered myself a professional photographer, even tho I did have a little photography “business” taking portraits of friends and family. I’ve taken multiple on-line classes and attended seminars, both on photography, and editing techniques. I love the whole process. And I’m really happy that I get to share my pics with you, the Instagram world. 😊
My favorite food from my favorite friend. 🐶❤️👦🏼
Wow! You guys rock! Sooooo many great questions on my #AskReagandoodle post yesterday!! I’ve grouped them in categories, and will answer one category each day. I’d answer them all today, but that’d be a LOT of reading, and ain’t nobody got time for that! 😉 The 9 categories are:
*Camera/Photography, *Little Buddy and BabyGirl, *Grooming, *Favorite Foods, *Clothes, *Training, *Breed, *River liver life, *In the Works, and *Everything Else.
Because, for me, the world revolves around treats (Mmm Mmm - I’d do just about anything for a Klondike Bar) I’ll start with my FAVORITE FOODS: 🍪🍕🥓🍔🌮 I eat Orijen dog food. It’s super good for me, helps keep my coat nice and shiny, and I LOVE the taste. Granted, I love the taste of almost everything, but still. I eat from a “Slow bowl” because I’m a gobbler and the bowl helps me to slow down and (sometimes) remember to chew before I swallow.
My favorite human food is whatever Little Buddy is eating. Let’s be real, I love any and all treats. I especially love peanut butter. We get BP2 powdered peanut butter. It has 85% less fat calories than regular peanut butter, has no added sugar, and tastes delicious. My people feel good about giving it to me, and they love it too. The other day I made peanut butter oatmeal cookies and they were scrumptious.
Because the vet says I’m a little too “fluffy”, It’s a good thing I also love carrots. 😉🥕
Got questions?🤔 Ask away... I will compile all the questions and give you answers tomorrow. From grooming to cameras used to Little Buddy and BabyGirl, to life on the river... anything goes. The sky is the limit. Because inquiring minds want to know. 🙂#AskReagandoodle
Little Buddy is puckering his tu-lips to show me some puppy love.🌷I am one lucky pup, surrounded by nature's beauty, and enjoying a beautiful relationship with my best friend. 🐶❤️👦🏼Little Buddy came into my life 2 years ago through the foster care system. We bonded instantly and have been besties ever since. He adds ☀️to my life.
Going on my daily dock walk. Every day, rain or shine, I walk the docks at our marina. It's just over 1 mile. I get to say hi to the other river livers, and I always wait in front of one particular boat house until she comes out with my treat.🍪😊

Peek-a-Boo! I (can't) see you. 🐰🐰
This Easter, some bunny wants you to know that #RabbitsAreNotToys. They're small and cute but they're also living and breathing creatures who come with a big responsibility. They can live up to ten years and deserve to have the same love, care and attention we give to other beloved pets. 🐰💕
Every year, thousands of rabbits are abandoned to shelters or released outdoors where they will likely die. Up to 95% of "Easter Bunnies" don't make it to the age of 1. If you're thinking of buying a bunny, how about a stuffed toy or a chocolate one? 🍭🍫
