Penguin

Penguin Awareness Day



Dog Blog Post #937



Photography Assignment



The boys broke out the November 2012 issue of National Geographic to give their pal Penguin a chance to see his brethren in the wild.

You see, January 20 is Penguin Awareness Day (who knew?) and what better place to read all about them than in the fine…

Alas, little did we all know until just before the shoot began, as I flipping through the pages to pick the perfect one, that this was an article of stunning pictures, and only a handful of actual...

That's what I get for feeling rather good about yesterday's Popcorn shots. :)

Yet another thing to look out for that I should add to my list.

After I make my list.

Guess I should finish that Editorial Calendar after all.

I really like the blue background. It's a good contrast to everything else in your shot (yes, Zachary, you too!).

Those are some great shots. Even the one with the penguin reading the magazine.
