Dog and Blue Jeans…In Black & White

Posted on

This dog was precious! I took this while 2nd shooter on an engagement shoot – this couple was adorable, but I couldn’t take my eyes off their pup. This was taken with my old Canon 30D, but edited using my new LR/PS CC subscription 🙂

Here’s another one – the lighting was harsh and the dog’s nose a little blurry, but I still like this photo:

While I love to photograph just about anything, I really love taking photos of pets. This dog, Fifi, could be seen with his owner just about every night on the Piazza in Cagli, Italy. If you look closely, you will see my shape in his eyes as well as two of the buildings surrounding the piazza.

My cat likes to sleep under the covers sometimes…and of course I let him because he is incredibly sweet 🙂 Unfortunately, all I had was my phone next to me to capture this…

Ralph doesn't appreciate being woken up by the camera.

Clifford just loves my camera! Oh, and I might be holding a piece of fruit in my free hand…

Franky (dog) is rarely willing to pose for photos, so I have to catch him when he is utterly exhausted. Ralph (cat), on the other hand, grew up with a lens in his face, so he tends to ham it up. That is why I love taking pet photos so much – even when they hate cameras, their personality permeates the shot.
