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.
After rolling around in the dirt and grass Oshie developed an itch. Now that I think about it the fire ants could have been the culprit. With the warm weather we have had lately they have come our of their slumber and are everywhere in our yard. I don’t think that was the case though because I didn’t see any on him and he hasn’t scratched at the same area again. If you have ever been fortunate enough to experience the bite and sting of a fire ant…well then you know how itchy it is.
Enjoy this short series of shots of Oshie mid itch. I recently upgraded my camera to a Canon 7D Mkii and have been experimenting with the amazing 10 frames per second it is capable of shooting. My last camera (Canon T5)was maybe 3 frames per second. This is will be excellent for capturing action shots of Oshie to share on the blog! Enough rambling about Cameras, here’s Oshie!
Sun in his eyes and disgusted with the camera man ha-ha.
