Oshie's World

Life Through A Golden Eye



How To Learn Portrait Photography

Step 1: Go get yourself a handsome Golden Retriever who listens well.

Step 2: Practice until he is so annoyed with you that he will no longer look at the camera even when you bribe with treats and use all your tricks.

Step 3: Repeat

As anyone who reads the blog knows, I use Oshie quite often to practice photography. I think he is getting pretty sick of it ha-ha. Anyway here are a few shots from the other day. I am trying to get better with using my flash and lighting in general. Also really trying hard to get the color of his eyes to show. Enjoy!

Oh and photography people…tips and critiques welcome.

I think this one came out the best.
Caught him closing his eyes and focused on nose oops!
Potential here but not digging the reflections in the eyes.

Water, Water, Everywhere…

I don’t know what it is about water coming from a faucet but apparently it is better than water in a bowl. I believe I have mentioned in the past that Oshie likes to be hand fed water from the shower or bathtub faucets. If it is time for a shower he will always follow you in and look up at you with his big brown eyes waiting for a drink.

He does the same thing outside. If I turn on one of the external faucets he is there in an instant lapping it up. The funniest thing is you could put his bowl of water right there next to the faucet and turn it off. He won’t touch the water in the bowl. Turn the faucet back on and he will drink like he has wandered the Sahara for weeks.

Here is a series of shots of him drinking from one of the outdoor faucets yesterday after we ran around the yard for a bit. Silly dog…
