More new dog images as promised!
These guys are Addy and Balou- miniature goldendoodles, or ‘shrimpy doodles’ as I like to call them. Addy looks like a weird blend between a wire-haired daschund, golden retriever and gsp. Her mom says she is of ‘questionable’ breeding, hee hee.
Nichole refers to these blue sky shots as my ‘high fashion photos’.
FYI: this shoot was mostly for Addy, which is why most of these shots are of her, but of course I had to take some of her buddy Balou since he was there. 🙂
I have been shooting straight into the sun a lot lately. It’s become a strong enough obsession that if I see the sun while photographing a dog, I try and position the dog between myself and the sun. And yes, you guessed it, I love lens flare. By the way, I did some research on shooting into the sun, and the consensus is it’s only damaging to your eyes- not your image sensor. Anyone care to refute the evidence I found in my research?
I was photographing Addy with her mom (that’s Ballou pictured there), when I turned and looked over at her ‘man-friend’. “Oh wow” I thought. “Um, excuse me, can I take your picture?” I asked. He happily obliged, and I was happy he did.
I have no idea what shutter speed I was using below, but it did some strange things. I like the downtown Seattle skyline in the background.
Holy intense eyes! I think Addy’s eyes are even more intense than Fergie’s.
Does Balou not look like a little old man on the left? For reasons I don’t understand he reminds me of a monkey.
