Been lurking here for a while now, enjoying the ‘Daily Inspiration’, so I though I’d send you a few of my favourite pics. I mainly shoot dogs (that sounds bad) and street/documentary.
I shoot dog action with a Nikon D3 and Street mainly with my trusty Lumix GF1. I had an M9 for a short while, but let’s just say we didn’t get on. (Wash my mouth out ;^)
On to the pics…….
I call this one ‘We Come In Peace’. This is one of my whippets (Molly) who likes sitting on the stairs so she can keep an eye on everything that’s going on.
To me she looks like an almond-eyed, grey alien, descending from its craft. It was taken with a Leica M9 with a 50mm @ 1.4
I call this one ‘You’re Mine’. Whippets are small and very fast (up to 35 miles per hour) so they can be difficult to catch. Luckily, I have Molly & Fudge who are happy to model for me whenever necessary. Ball throwers are often not as enthusiastic to help out, but a few Scooby Snacks usually works a treat. On this shot, the grass was wet which made the ball give off spray as it bounced and spun.
Sorry, but I can’t find the exif data for this one. It was shot on the Nikon D3 with the 70-200 VRII.
And finally, staying with the dog theme, here’s a cross-over shot to one of my documentary images, taken in Birkenhead (Near Liverpool, UK) last year.
A police officer uses a dog to move peaceful protestors from the road. It was taken with the Nikon D3 with a 20mm Prime. Again, sorry, no exif data.
