When I find myself struggling creatively with the week’s theme for the Pet Photography Project 52 blog circle, I almost always find myself coming back to composites. A composite is created essentially by combining several distinct images into one. For this particular assignment, that was done in Photoshop using an image of my Siberian retriever Hunter and Read More

Pet Photography Project 52, Week 40: Orange You Glad It’s Fall

Orange you glad it’s fall? I am! C’mon, you know I can’t pass up an opportunity for a pun, especially when this week’s Pet Photography Project 52 theme was orange!

Pet Photography Project 52, Week 38: The Eyes Have It

“When I look into the eyes of an animal, I do not see an animal. I see a living being. I see a friend. I feel a soul,” said Anthony Douglas Williams. Pet photographers, particularly, know how true this statement is. When it comes to capturing the heart and soul of any animal, the eyes Read More

The participants of the Facebook Pet Photography 52 Weeks Project group have been pounding the pavement this past week to create their images for week 35’s theme, street.

Pet Photography Project 52, Week 32: Happiness is a Warm Puppy

“Happiness is a warm puppy,” or at least that’s what Charles M. Schulz in his book by the same title. One look at these photos though and you may also agree that happiness is a fluffy, snow-white, six-month-old miniature American Eskimo puppy named Zara.

Pet Photography Project 52, Week 29: Sky, Before & After

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a before-and-after, so I thought week 29’s sky theme was a great opportunity. You see, while I intended on using Hunter for this week’s photo, living on four heavily wooded acres doesn’t always allow for the best views of the open sky, so I turned to a favorite Read More

Pet Photography Project 52, Week 28: Comic Pop Art

Comic, huh? Well, what direction to take this week’s Pet Photography Project 52 theme… I wanted to create something different, but what. My mind kept going back to art. I brainstormed a list of ideas that included everything from a comic book-inspired look to a watercolor painting. Suddenly it popped into my head! Why not create a pop art pooch Read More

Bokeh is the focus (pun intended) of week 27’s Pet Photography Project 52 post. Expect to see some major puppy prettiness going around the blog circle with this theme!
