Project 52: Landmarks

June 29, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “Landmarks.” My favorite landmarks are always the natural ones – the bits of earth that you can look at at know exactly where you are. Gnarled old trees, weathered stones, or in this case, one of my favorite waterfalls are all landmarks that guide us through the forest. At … Read More

Project 52: Blue

June 8, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “Blue.” I discovered this perfect, hidden spot in the woods last week and have been looking for an excuse to bring Flint back there with my camera. The green forest didn’t quite fit this week’s theme, but I grabbed a blue bandanna and we were ready to go! Flint … Read More

Project 52: Headshots

April 20, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “Headshots.” You can tell so much about a dog by looking at his eyes.  Flint, for example, is quite full of mischief. He also turned 6 months old this week.  I can’t believe how quickly my little trouble maker is growing up. Ready to see more of this week’s … Read More

Project 52: A Day In The Life

March 30, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “A Day in the Life.” Flint’s absolute favorite part of our daily life is his afternoon walk in the woods (it’s my favorite part too). I usually leave my camera and my phone at home so I can enjoy time our walk without any distractions. Flint is growing up … Read More

Project 52: Silhouette

February 23, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme was “Silhouette.” We’ve had an usually warm week here in New England (it was 70 degrees in February!) so Flint and I have been spending as much time outside as possible.  Wednesday evening, we went over to the cranberry bogs for our silhouette photos. Things didn’t work out quite the … Read More

Project 52: Depth of Field

February 2, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “Depth of Field.”  I love using a really shallow depth of field, so that the background is blurry and the subject is in focus.  I find it’s an effect that draws your attention right to the dog in the photo.  This week, I managed to convince Flint to hold … Read More

Project 52: Catchlights

January 26, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “Catchlights.”  Catchlights are the the white highlights in the eyes that really bring them to life.  See the difference between Flint’s eyes (on the left) and Eva’s eyes (on the right)?  Because Eva is looking down, she doesn’t have any catchlights. Flint is looking up and you can see … Read More

Project 52: Fill the Frame

January 19, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “Fill the Frame.”  Getting close the subject and filling the frame are great ways to show off the little details that make our pets so unique.  I decided to focus in on Flint’s amazing, adorable puppy eyes.  I swear, it should be illegal to be this cute. Don’t forget … Read More

Project 52: Rule of Thirds

January 12, 2018Project 52

This week’s Project 52 theme is “The Rule of Thirds.”  Moving the subject off-center (to one of the “thirds”) is my favorite way to make a photograph more interesting.  Of course with a subject this cute, every angle is a good one. Would you like to see more “Rule of Thirds” themed photos from our … Read More

Project 52: Blank Slate

January 5, 2018Project 52

It’s the first week of a new year, and I’m so excited to introduce my new little “blank slate,” an English Shepherd puppy named Flint.  As many of you know, I lost my heart dog, Iris, early last year.  Life just does seem quiet right without a dog, so a few weeks ago, I drove … Read More
