I mentioned yesterday that after my Roller Derby photo shoot I also took some pictures with my friend Brittany and her dog Dakota. Dakota has been very sick lately so I was glad to be able to give Brittany some good shots of her. And Brittany was thrilled to see Dakota get a burst of energy and have some fun in the sand.
What I Learned
-Dogs (or any animal) will never EVER do exactly what you want them to! Fast shutter speeds and continuous shooting modes help!
-That "golden hour" of light right before sunset can sometimes be a little TOO golden.
-Its easy to spend so much time concentrating and hurrying and getting the right shot before the dog moves, that you completely ignore your horizon lines or your composition altogether! I had to severely rotate and crop a lot of these shots!
And because Wednesdays is "Black and White Wendesdays" here in blogging world, here's this shot again, in black and white.
