What a handsome face!  The blue background makes this image for me.  Choosing the background first when composing images is a good tip for photographers who want clean and uncluttered photographs.  Simple is best in my book!

 



Fun with Framing

Framing is a composition technique in photography where you utilize other elements within the image to draw attention to the main subject.  In this image, the handler’s body and arm are framing the Russell Terrier who is totally focused on the bait being presented.  Using a shallow depth of field ensured that the handler himself is out of focus, further causing your eye to look at the dog’s face.  Love this little Terrier!

The Best Camera…

…is the one that you have with you.  This photography quote is so very true in this age of technology where it seems that everyone is a photographer – shooting with anything  from very expensive professional high-end cameras, to cell phones, to tablets!  Here’s a photographer at the Harrisburg Kennel Club show making images of the Cocker Spaniel breed judging last weekend with her tablet!  It still looks very awkward to me to see someone pointing a tablet at their subject and taking photos!  I can’t get beyond the cameras that don’t have view finders!  I MUST have a view finder!  I guess I’m just old school.  Or maybe just old!  :-)

These two sweet therapy dogs were hanging out in the Meet The Breed area at the Harrisburg Kennel Club show on Saturday.  Visitors to this area of the show have a chance to be up close and personal with dogs and their owners to learn more about the breeds. When I stopped to say hello, this pup sat up on her back legs and looked as though she were saying her morning prayers.  So cute!

 



Smile!

Dear person who schedules events at the Harrisburg Farm Show Complex…..a dog show and a cat show on the same weekend?!  Really?!  Photographing BOTH events was exhausting, but totally fun and I had a great time!  Nonetheless…could you please maybe schedule them for 2 different weekends next year?

Brewster is keeping a watchful eye on the squirrels from his favorite spot in the window.  Can’t you just hear his tail swishing with excitement?
