Picture Perfect Pups

It feels like it's been forever since I've been behind the camera, so I decided to take some photos of Zoe and Lexi this evening. Surprisingly they both were content to sit and pose for me with very minimal prompting, and I think I got tuckered out before they did. Once again, I shot these photos with my 50 mm lens because the clarity of it just can't be beat.

With just a few exceptions I preferred all of the images in black and white, and decided to go for uniformity instead of adding one or two in color.  The irony is that I hemmed and hawed for a long time over the color of their scarves, and then it didn't matter after all.  Figures.




Getting a dog to position themselves just right and hold still to catch rim light around them is virtually impossible, but like I mentioned, the dogs were content to pose today for some reason.  So, I managed to get quite a few of both of them with it...





I usually post portraits of my fur babies, which fits Zoe's lazy personality just fine, but really doesn't capture Lexi's.  These last three photos show off Lexi's personality a little better....


Especially this one (which is my absolute fav of the bunch!) of the little goober barking at me.  I'm sure the neighbors were loving the fact that I was letting her howl as I snapped several sets of photos of her...
