IrishPogue on

What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? Homework instructions were to use perspective and the rule of thirds to draw in the viewer. I wanted to show the focus and drive of the cattle dog breed and to reveal the unflappable intrepid curiosity of the cat.

Can you tell us about any special equipment or techniques that you used? Camera (Canon Rebel) and my beasties.

What are you most proud of? The beasties were very tolerant of the camera in their faces and I feel as if I got some interesting angles to showcase both animals.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take TONS of photos, get on their level, keep them interested and engaged.

Thanks, Louise, Anjea is absolutely full of expression, isn't she? She is very toy driven and I was holding her favorite just out of reach on the stair landing with one hand while shooting the photo with my other! To answer your other question, pogue is the Anglicized version of the Gaelic word, pg, for kiss ;)

The computer didn't like my Gaelic word and shortened it to pg! Should be "pog" with an accent over the O !

I love this! What kind of lense is this?

how do you prevent Pet glowing eye's when using a flash?

03/25/2015 Flag

I like to use natural light so that this issue is moot! But if I need to use the flash I snap a photo when they're not looking directly at the camera. There are also editing tools such as 'remove red eye' features in most software programs. Do you have any tips?

Love the Blue Heeler! My Aussie is one of my favorite subjects, too :) Great work!

Thank you so much! She's a mushy love bug but when there is a treat or a toy her focus is undeniably intense!
