Project 52 | Double Exposure

I got to try something new and challenging for this week’s Project 52 theme! The theme was “Double Exposure,” which is where you take two or more photos, and your camera blends them into a single image. It was a lot trickier than I had anticipated! I headed out to the barn before the sun went down so I could photograph Rydell for the challenge. He’s such a funny boy. He stopped eating his hay to watch me as I ran all over the barn, finding different angles and objects to photograph. I must have been very entertaining! Rydell is a big ham and loves to do tricks for cookies. Every time I tried to take a closeup image of his face, he stuck his nose into the camera and tried to give me kisses. A few times he smiled for me, too! I love how eager he is to please.

While most of the double exposures that I captured were pretty bad, I did end up with a couple that I was happy with. This first one is more subtle, combining Rydell’s portrait with the texture of a wood post. The second image turned out better than I expected, too. I’m definitely going to be playing with multiple exposure more now, it’s a great challenge.

Enjoy the images!

Project 52 | Head Tilt

The latest challenge for Project 52 was “Head Tilt!” Now, none of our dogs have a dramatic, adorable head tilt. They have a lot of other cute quirks, but the head tilt is not on the list! I figured Penny would be the most likely to tilt her little Boston noggin, so we headed out into the yard for her mini photo shoot. I made all kinds of noises. Tried the squeaker–nothing. Whistled–nope. Made all kind of shrill and strange noises, and Penny just stared at me like she hadn’t heard a thing. Then I hissed at her like a cat, and for a brief moment, we had a head tilt! Then I whined like a sad dog, and another little head tilt! Those were the only two sounds that worked, and they only worked once. But we did it, we got the head tilt!

Tara - You could almost make an entire project about – what does this noise do?
I recently photographed a tiny dog who wouldn’t acknowledge me unless I barked like a big dog :)

Where do you get the 52 prompts from??

Daisy & Tristan | Sarasota dog portraits

Daisy and Tristan came by for their closeup last month, and I had a wonderful time photographing them. The duo is owned by Meg Nichol of Positively Simple Dog Training, so not only are they sweet and photogenic, they are super well-behaved. Daisy–the shy, red girl with the big ears–was rescued by Meg after Hurricane Charlie. Shortly after Daisy came into her life, Meg adopted Tristan the Muppet–I mean, Havanese. :) He is Daisy’s best friend, a mellow and calming presence helping her to relax. He is one cool guy! Daisy and Tristan adore their mom. I loved how intently and lovingly they watched Meg and tried to please her. She is a lucky woman to have such a wonderful pair of dogs in her life. And I think I’m lucky, too, because I got to photograph them! :)

Enjoy the images! And if you’re in need of help with your dogs, please consider Positively Simple Dog Training. Remember Meg’s slogan: “It’s never too late to ask for help!”
