Photography Assignment

  • Our Daily Challenge - July 26, 2012 - "Sport"

Sorry boys, Bitey-Face is not an Olympic Sport this year.

The Plan

The plan was to get a Bitey-Face picture that would work for "Sport" as well as the Daily Dog Challenge of "Neat or Messy".

The Problems

Unfortunately, none of my Bitey-Face shots showed the usual flopping of fur that would work with Messy.

I obviously played a bit with sliders on the one shot, but I never did get what I was looking for.

The Solution

While I will try again tomorrow for the DDC "Neat or Messy" shot, I was rather happy with how pictures at the top told a story that needed no extra verbiage from me.

Editor's Note: Worked on the Lighting page for BZ Dog Journal, adding in some examples from my Flickr stream as I ran across them.

I'd really like to consider lighting for every day's shots,  not just when one of the groups assigns it as challenge. I'm hoping having a page of sample images will help me do just that.

I think lighting is the one thing that I'm really conscious of. I took pictures yesterday, but didn't get time to post them. Stupid stepbrothers visiting from out of town! Anyway, the boys look fantastic as usual! I hate when I can't get pictures to turn out the way I imagine, which seems to be happening a lot lately.
