This week's Project 52 topic was perfect timing for me.  I too often grab my off camera flash instead of using a reflector.  I fear the reflector will get blown over or will scare the dogs or....some other excuse.  In reality, a reflector can be incredibly easy to work with, especially if you can attach it to a light stand.  I use a California Sunbounce reflector - white on one side and silver on the other.  With a special attachment I can mount it on a stand and not worry about it (unless it is windy!).

Hello and Happy Friday!  I am back with my Jack and Julie 52, a weekly project featuring my pups where a new topic is selected each week by a different pet photographer.  This week's challenge was paws!  How fun is that?

We lined up the pups like this: I photographed them from the side to see them in profile: Julie's coat right now is especially fluffy, so she got one of her paws showcased! Not let's see how other pet photographers around the world photographed this fun topic!  First up is Raleigh dog photographer, Tara Lynn, owner of InBetween the Blinks Photography.  Click on the links at the bottom of each post and follow the blog circle until you end up here!

Hello and Happy Friday!  I am back with my Jack and Julie 52, a weekly project featuring my pups where a new topic is selected each week by a different pet photographer.  This week's challenge was to incorporate doors  into our pet photography.  I felt it only right that I include our very own front door with their cute little faces poking out just hoping a walk is about to begin! And then I headed into the archives to share my all time favorite door image.  This is Jack at UC Berkeley in front of a most majestic door!   Now let's see how other pet photographers around the world interpreted this fun theme starting with Cynthia Wood of  Georgian Bay Studios in  Toronto, Ontario.  This is a blog circle, so click on the links at the bottom of each post until you end up back here! Happy circling!
