Welcome to the first of four pet photography challenge series, brought to you me, Jolanda Boekhout teacher of our Pet Photography class. Join us each Monday for a new photo challenge.
1. Intimacy (unawareness)
Animals can so beautifully blend into their own world. Capturing animals while they seem miles away in dreaming creates stillness in a shot. It is almost as if they pose for you.
On a walk in Bihac, Bosnia, this stray dog followed me all afternoon. While my friend was inside the bank to change some money he waited patiently. It gave me the chance to capture him unnoticed.
Camera: Nikon D700, lens 50mm 1.8
Setting: f3.5 ,1/640, ISO 400
Challenge: find a ‘stolen’ moment of your pet and capture the silent beauty in his being.
Tip: try to make yourself ‘invisible’ by focusing your attention on anything but your pet and click when your pet settles down and thinks you’re not watching.
