Black and White environmental wedding portrait.

I of around 5700 frames from a wedding I shot at Wintererthur in Delaware.  I was very happy the couple trusted me to get into this non-traditional spot.  They were very good at posing themselves.  I can’t tell you how much time this saves.  Having to stop and show someone how to stand really cuts into your time.

I took this image Friday after a rain storm.  It was really had to focus on the dandelion petal with the wind blowing.  When shooting this tight of a macro image you have to be really patient.  Not only did I have to wait for the wind to stop blowing I have the get the camera in the same plane as the bottom and top of the image.  I will be adding this to my for sale gallery on Monday.  I have one framed and ready to go if anyone is interested.

A few photographs I took last weekend of my 11 week old bluetick playing in a cornfield.  The key to most images is a clutter free background.  The biggest difference between a professional and an amateur is the background.  Most inexperienced photographers see only the subject.  A professional looks at the background first and positions themselves to have a clean background behind the subject.

Wide Angle Dog Photography

I took this image this morning.  I have been trying to get something with my wide angle.  It was tough shooting without looking through the lens and making sure what I wanted was in focus.  I loved using my F4 was a waist level viewfinder. This was one of 200 frames most of which were junk.  The Beagle always looks this vicious while playing and the Bluetick is hard to get with her head up.  It looks nasty but they were have lots of fun.

I took this image on Monday.  The lesson was over before the sun really set with nice colors.  The photograph looks flat and gray to me, so I added many layers of textures and effects.  The finished images is vibrant and a whole lot more interesting.

A Cute Puppy Face

This is a great example of how a catch light can illuminate eyes.  It is very hard to get detail in the eyes of this puppy.  In this case she stumble over to a concrete wall with freshly fallen snow.   The white ledge worked as the perfect catchlight for the 3 second she stood there.  You can see the catchlight in the bottom half of her eyes the reflected the ledge.

A few pics of Anabelle my 8-week-old bluetick coonhound puppy and my beagle Jack.  I try to get a variety of nice shots when ever I get a new dog. I love the puppy images I have of my Bloodhound who passed away in December.  Direct natural light is the way to go for dogs that are black or dark colors.  The trick is to illuminate the eyes and bump the shadow up in raw.
