Dog Photography

Bless my Daddy! He is as fired up and inspired to try and photograph the dogs as I am. . .
Mom simply laughs at us. It is like that phrase about "herding cats." I am obsessed with having a good picture with all the dogs in it, preferably with no humans. Lucky for me, Daddy shares this obsession.

Our first attempt with Abby, Cooper, and Dunken was in Louisiana. Here are 4 of the 30+ pictures.

What a perfect opportunity to capture the perfect doggie moment, don't you think? We had treats, a place where they were sort of confined, a camera, decent light, and sheer determination. I snapped 158 pictures of the precious puppies. Here are a few that did not go well:
