Emmi Portrait


Here is a photo of my uncles dog, she is called Emmi. I am not completely happy with the photo, but it’s also not a photo I would delete. I like the close-up shot, but I am unhappy that I did not frame it well, I’d prefer it if I would have shot it so that you can see a little bit more of the neck. The background is a bit distracting in one area, especially the bright area beside her right ear. But photography is about practicing and improving, and I take a look at the issues to take … Continue reading Emmi Portrait

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fun


This Friday, the WordPress Photo Challenge is about fun. I’d like to show off a photo that I shot last summer. I met my uncle outside and he had one of his dogs with him, and I was new to DSLR photography and wanted to try some action shots. I asked him if he could let his dog Jacko run, and I tried my luck to take some action photos. I did also take photos of my uncle that day, he looks so happy on the photos. I wish we could hang out like that again, but his brain tumor … Continue reading Weekly Photo Challenge: Fun

Black And White Dog Photo


I still have so many dog photos that I never uploaded, but I need to work on this too. In this post I have a black and white photos of a black dog, I have chosen to change the image to black and white as the image was extremely overexposed, and in this case black and white is often the last chance to make it look good. In fact, it’s often very surprising how you can fix overexposed images when you convert them to black and white. Apart from that, black and white looks good anyway.

Beautiful Black Dog


My uncle’s dog Emmi is very beautiful, and she is also very photogenic. Today she enjoyed the weather with us all in the garden, and she could play with Charlie. They both did use the lawn to play, but they also jumped through the plant bed and that was not so good. My mother and her husband planted carrots, potatoes, beans and so much more. The husband of my mother was not so amazed when the dogs jumped through the crops. Continue reading Beautiful Black Dog

A Black Dog Photo


Here is a photo of a dog I met yesterday during my hike.  First I thought the dog would be lonely, but the dog owners were just 30 meters away and followed up. The dog seemed to know the path, and enjoyed to show the owners the way. Also it was funny to see how the dog did carry the stick on his path. You can get some interesting photos with a 300mm lens, because you have enough distance to take photos in all kind of situations without interfering too much. I still like to take photos with my other … Continue reading A Black Dog Photo

Jako The Black Labrador


I showed you Jacko already once on my blog. It’s the black labrador of my uncle. My uncle, my aunt and the kids are often in the nature on the campsite with the dog on weekends. At times it can happen that my uncle is very busy even afternoons or evenings due to his company, but then the dog has a place to go too, my mother did take care about the dog when this happens, but it doesn’t happen too often. That means the dog is used to other people. It’s fun to play with him, he is really … Continue reading Jako The Black Labrador
