Dog Photography

After looking at some inspiration of dog photography, I decided to take my own dog out to get some test shots in a variety of walk locations that could be implemented into the final product, to see if I needed to spend any time developing my photography skills in this area before starting the project next semester.


In each one, I tried to capture both the dog as a subject alongside the space he was in, incorporating both the landscape and portrait styles. I experimented with using a 1.8/50 prime lens to give focus to the dogs face which proved to be useful in providing a sharp focus to the subject whilst keeping a look on what was within the background of the composition.


Whilst editing the photographs, I found that a black and white filter proved to be very effecting in capturing emotion and sense of place, so I plan to use this technique throughout various sections within the website.
