The Challenge: looking high or looking low.
Yesterday's shoot didn't go as planned. I was hoping to get some interesting canine snout shots from below. Instead I got this quiet moment while laying on the ground. This is so typical of Loki, talking and leaning on his favorite person.
While the image appears to have the background cropped out, it's not. The stark white background and light on their heads is actually the effect of the white ceiling and natural light bursting in from the sky light above. The details of the ceiling and the skylight are lost during the development process.
Most of my best shots are by accident. I'm very bad at composition. I know a good shot when I see it, but setting it up is always difficult. One of my favorite examples is the shot of the little girl talking to the tulips. Mr. Wild Dingo took it because he had the camera, but it was my eye that caught it and I'm all, "Hurry up, get that shot!" I still get a huge smile every time I look at that photo of the smiling girl talking to the tulips with the wind blowing through her fine strands of hair.
I think this shot will always elicit that same feeling.
