Your probably tired of my studio shots but it's cold outside. Next week we will be in the 60's so I promise I'll go outside and take a picture of something. Here are a few more shots from my studio. I was playing around with a brown background. I liked how it turned out and the best thing is that It was totally wrinkled but I was able to get he background to blur enough that you don't even know. Hurray! Especially because I like my backgrounds out of focus. I have one day left on my Kelby Trainning, watched a bit today and started making a wish list of things I want. I only need about $3500 to get what I want. The guy I watched today was using a lens with f/1.2, which for me would mean even more blur and the opportunity to shoot with less light and a lower ISO or film speed, the lower the ISO the less grain you have in the image and the larger you can enlarge your prints and retain the detail. That lens alone cost $1600, more than my camera. Crazy Enjoy the pics.

I am expanding my portfolio! I was lucky enough to get to photograph 5 Great Pyrenees puppies, 8 weeks old. This was my first time photographing dogs. I tried all sorts of things to get their attention, even peak-a- boo. It is really hard to get their attention, an maybe it's the breed of dog. Their temperament fits their look, like a big teddy bear. Their heads are big and I think heavy for them to hold up, they couldn't hold them up for but a second and usually because their owner assisted. The kids enjoyed seeing them. My little one received his own lick bath from one of them. It was fun! When these dogs are full grown they are very big! If they stand on their back legs they are as tall as the average adult. The breed are used as guard dogs in sheep herds. They are friendly with a good temperament and if you want an indoor pony or a dog to help you herd your children you should look into this dog.
