    Very nice! i have a camera shy dog that always goes the other way when I try to take her picture.

  • Thanks :)
    With a lot of patience and of course delicious treats, you’ll get there. I’m doing a project with him this year, 52 weeks for dogs on Flickr and now he found out that the black box means treats and lots of attention. It also depends on the lens, the big ones he doesn’t like a lot.

    Karen Hi, Fabulous crop whether in camera or post, I love this imagery of a favoured breed ~ So full of all things owner and really pulling on the love of canine

  • Hi Rick, thanks for kind words. It’s not a crop, I shot it this way. Later I tried it portrait orientated, but it didn’t work the way I wanted it to.
