started out early

by Julia Gotz June. 09, 2007 7254 views

I woke up an hour early so I could get to the park before work. I've always been a night owl, so this is a big change for me. I didn't even need the alarm to go off, because I was so excited to get to the park.

Dogs - I love them so much, and miss having one. Seeing the new pups in the park was very tempting. The one year old standard poodle had an adorable bouncy run. I never really appreciated poodles in the past. They are lovely dogs. The mixed puppy in 7, 8 and 9 is a dream dog. Smart, friendly, attentive and so beautiful.

Somebody remind me of all the reasons not to get a dog. Please.

Number 8 is so amazing. The exposure is dead on and the expression on the puppy's face if wonderful.

Yes, I see how the puppy's markings are better in colour.

Thanks to you all for your great comments, and especially for constructive criticism and suggestions.

krx, no matter if I shoot colour or b&w, I'm working on looking in terms of light and contrast. Dropping out the colour when I look at the pictures gives me more information on how I'm doing with my awareness of light.

Standard poodles seem pretty different from the miniatures or toys - more like the even tempered hunting dogs they started out as. Was it standard poodles that you knew to be yappy?

I'm going to try that, Ottosson. I didn't use flash. Maybe I'll try that next time. But dogs don't like flash, and then they get camera shy.

The light got much brighter at the end, and finally I got some crisper shots. Early morning light is beautiful, but it was overcast, and it's hard to catch fast action in low light.
