Myself as an Early Photographer

Coming into this class I have some basic knowledge of what photography is and how to take photos. Basic ideas and concepts such as the rule of 3rds, shutter speed, lighting, contrast, and depth I have looked into. For me, taking photos isn’t just point and shoot anymore. I have to have the correct lighting and scene in order to take the picture.

I currently take the most photos of my dogs. They are a lot of fun to take pictures of but are also very hard to deal with as they are a handful. They either are too stubborn, too lazy, or too energetic to sit still and pose for that perfect moment.  When it does work the photo comes out great.

I am not saying that I’m the greatest dog photographer out there, but there is always more room to get better.  My current photos I think are passable, they work pretty well for what they are meant for which is to just post to instagram and twitter. I could step it up and fine tune the camera for the f stop, iso, and shutter speed but most photos that I take I won’t have that much time to set up a camera and have the dogs sit still.

I don’t try to capture any emotion or meaning in my photos. They aren’t art pieces, but memories. If I really wanted to capture a feeling it would be the feeling of the dog’s soft coat and wet tongue licking you through the picture.

  1. First off your dog is adorable. Pets and animals tend to be a subject people feel comfortable photographing because it is fun and even blurry results tend to be cute. I know I have tons of blurry photos of my own dog.
