Photography

I keep forgeting to post this.  There is a dog photographer who is posting tips on getting better pictures . She also talks about the different camera setting ect.  Here is her link.Carol Beuchat  You will have to look back at her post  to go to the first post  on photography. The series is  called "Shoot the Dog"  .  Some stuff isnt knew to me, but I did learn a few things.

Here are some pictures from yesterday.
When I went to the park yesterday I wanted to take pictures with this green spigot.   I think its cool looking. But I wasnt very happy with the pictures when I got home. I wanted to get the top of the spigot in the picture. To do this the dog had to stand on a cinder block to give them height.  The dog doesnt look happy and the lighting wasnt good.  It was morning and probably not enough light. So I went back around 11 am to retake some shots.  I just took Miley the second time because I was going to the club afterwards to work on some agility stuff.  Guiness would be more comfortable at home.  Anyway, when I went back to the park I took Miley's bed. 

Yes that green ottoman is Miley's bed.  I got it at Good Will.  There was no chair.  It really was to be used to help the dogs on and off the bed.It sits right next to the bed , near my side of the bed.   Miley decided it was to be her bed. 

 I like these pictures so much better than the other ones.  Lucky there was only one other family there so see this crazy lady carry an ottoman to take a picture of her dog. LOL

Miley's foot still isnt better.  I really do think something is in her foot or there is a deep bruise.  I probably shouldn't have taken her to this park. To may uneven surfaces. I had to carry her sometimes because of the rocks.  I wanted to go to the flat park with the cement walkway but they were have a "Dam Race" that ended at the park. So I didnt want to deal with all those people.   Im not sure what do about her foot.



 Oh, yea here are a few tree pictures. I think trees look so cool. Esp. the dead ones. Sometimes the way the light hits the trees is just beautiful.

Thanks for the link to the photographer! And I love the idea of lugging a green ottoman to a green spigot so she can pose with props! Such a photogenic dog!

I love the picture of Miley's profile, with the spigot blurred (great DOF!) and the bokeh is really nice.

I just compared the pics of Miley's foot...is it just the camera angle or is the bruise getting bigger? Hope she gets well soon!

LOL. I'm sure you are the only person to ever lug her dog's ottoman to a park to take a photo. Hysterical.

SOrry about Miley's foot. Do you think she'd tolerate a boot? Probably not....

Those are beautiful! I really like the ones with the ottoman. It makes a more professional looking photo.
I've been the crazy one hauling props into the woods before -LOL!

Ashley, I think it is bigger. I went out an bought a magnifing glass. It looks like a small ulcerated place is on the pad.

Sara, I did go out a buy a boot. She refused to get in the car to go to the park and walk tonight. Will see if she wants to go tomorrow and Ill try the boot.

Diana said...

No they didnt xray it because she didnt show any response to pain. But I guess thats the next step. Its been going on 2 weeks now.

great pictures and thanks for the link, I want to see pictures of you hauling out the ottoman, LOL. Thanks for the link!

Poor Miley! She looks lovely on the ottoman though - and the mental image of you carrying it through the park to photo with it is just priceless. :)

I also love the photos of Miley on the ottoman - only you would carry it into the park! LOL! Sorry about Miley's foot and hope you find an answer soon.
