No big rambling post today. Obviously we had a good covering of snow yesterday and I just had to get out there and photograph some dogs as you never know how long the snow will last.
I snapped them on my way to the bomb crater where I was going to meet up with my kids who were sledging.
There’s seven new dogs that I’ve not come across before and one that I do know.
I was really pleased to come across Dizzy, as I’ve not yet featured a Dalmatian on this blog and this was the perfect day to photograph one. She was quite a little truffle pig with her nose very much in the snow most of the time, but looks great with her head up in a snowy backdrop. I’m not sure whether I prefer the original colour files or the black and white conversions. I like the way there’s a little splash of colour in the last remaining leaves, but having a white dog with dark spots on a largely white backdrop just works in b&w too.
Nelson, German Sort-haired Pointer – essentially this is nightmare to shoot – black dog on a white backdrop while trying to retain a bit landscape detail. Ends up looking like a studio shot. I ended up going in close to just shoot a portrait as the wider stuff didn’t work.
