My first 6D snap was also of my dog

This was the very first picture I took with my (then) new 6D.  Attached the 24-105 L, turned it on and snapped this.

Natasha ( nice name by the way ) is not happy with you on the photo:

- you didn’t buy the 6DMKII

- you eye the other puppy ๐Ÿถ

enjoy the new camera and take lots of photos of Natasha ๐Ÿ˜‰

You are so right! Grandpa could really use the tilt/swivel screen when trying to get Down to her level.

When my much loved 5D died I thought about replacing it with another, but the fact that  Canon no longer repair a 15 year old model pushed me to newer things. I love portraits so I needed a FF. I really wanted the 6DMII, but currently it cost almost twice what I paid for the refurbished 6D. So Tasha will have to forgive me for not wanting to dip into the retirement fund.

Thanks for looking

Hay cruff,

i was not exact in what I said. My first shot was the wood  cabimets in the den   Then some snapshots at a church social. A couple of those would have been good to post, but I did not have release forms. Natasha is my first good portrait legal to post.

Therefore you have the honor to have a beautiful canine as your first pix on you 6D.

Re: First portrait with New 6D

She's a beautiful dog, but I think the photo would benefit greatly from properly adjusted white balance.

Good point. As I said I did this on my phone with PS express. My desktop has bee giving me trouble, but if I get a chance I will try it there.

This is under incandescent light looking down at a dark tan carpet. She is more red than most Goldenโ€™s so it may not be that far off.

This may be closer to original but seems a little boring. I probably over did it on the first

post. Thanks for pointing that out
