Dobermans: great photo models

Dobermans make beautiful photo models.  They stand quietly and gracefully, alert about everything that's going on around them, and yet calm and peaceful.  They are naturally beautiful dogs, and their personality makes it easy to reflect their beauty on the photographs.  Starting today, 2nd day of NaBloPoMo, I will be regularly posting photos of my 2 dogs. Only the photos that I find worth sharing: beautiful, funny, or otherwise interesting. ...more

Black & White Photog Tips!

This might appeal to like 10 of you... but I thought I'd post a bit about my photography background (or lack of ;) and give a tip or two.A friend (Manda) texted me this photo of one of my pictures that had been chosen in a contest a year or so ago;  with moving to Florida, I was unable to make the grand opening of the center, thus losing my chance on viewing what the judges had picked.  Here's the picture: (the models are my crazy beautiful cousins, maddie & keegs) ...more
