his morning, the clouds decided to part for a couple hours and hundreds of canines dragged their owners and families to Fish Creek Park for the 10th annual Calgary Humane Society Dog Jog Fundraiser. I was asked to come take photos of my friend Christie and her "A Walk With Whippets" crew (China, Toby, Casey & Abbey.)
I've been trying to take more pictures of actual people, so I guess that dogs are a stepping stone along that path. I think that part of the trick of taking good canine photos is taking a lot of photos, and taking the photos quickly, before the subjects get distracted and start sniffing and/or licking other subject's butts (this may be a problem with human subjects as well, but time will only tell.)
I've been trying to find new and different perspectives, which as a 6'5" man, usually means getting down and rolling around in the dirt. I also used some natural topography to get below the subjects (a little ravine, fallen tree trunks).
