Dogs and photography — on my site, those are two things that go hand in hand. If you don’t believe me, you should ask my mommy and Taylor.
Reminder… The Houston Pittie Pack…
Before I continue, I wanted to remind everyone about Kissa-Bull, The Houston Pittie Pack. I posted the other day about one Blogville’s own family — they lost everything in a house fire, including 5 of their 7 furry family members. Please visit Frankie’s site and Dachies with Moxie for the latest information on how you can help Sandra and her family. Also, you can always click on the Chip In button in the right-hand column to donate whatever you can. I’m amazed at the outpouring of love from our community. Thank you, furiends.
Now for my review…
Look below for the Good Stuff vs. the Not-So-Good Stuff…
Dog Photography for Dummies, by Kim Rodgers & Sarah Sypniewski
My mommy received this book to review, and thought I
would be the perfect doggie to review it. Thanks, mommy!
Dogs & photography? How did she know I’d be interested?
There are many doggie photos in the book,
with tips on how to get the best shots.
Hey, this doggie looks like Big Carl!
This chapter talks about zooming in and taking
close-up shots of doggies, like noses, tails, eyes…
Later on we tried a close-up nose shot, like on this page.
You can see it below.
After reading the book, I told my mommy to take
some photos of me, with my direction.
Here’s a shot of me in my thinking pose.
This is me in my sleeping pose. *giggle*
Then we took some close-up shots…
Here we see some detail in my curly locks.
Here’s a nice close-up of my eye.
All the better to SEE you with, my dear!
Here’s MY nose shot.
I could see my nose in a book, couldn’t you?
Close up! Teehee!!
Here’s me looking all rustled and rested.
I really enjoyed pawing through this book! And I admit it…
I enjoyed looking at the doggie pictures too!
The Good Stuff:
- The book is for dummies! That means that ANYONE could read it… even me. Teehee!
- There are 18 chapters full of content!
- The information in each chapter is clearly organized, really detailed, and very easy to understand.
- Explains how to get doggies to be the best subjects, by using trickery, bribery, and toys!
- Teaches how to use indoor and outdoor lighting to your advantage.
- Reviews all types of photography equipment, including cameras, camera settings, lenses, memory cards, etc.
- Explains composition, and all types of photos, including posed, action, candid…
- Includes information on how to edit your photos with editing software such as Photoshop (though we have knowledge of and use Paint Shop Pro for photo editing).
- There’s an accompanying ‘cheat sheet’ online for the book — great for a quick read and review.
The Not-So-Good Stuff:
- There may be a few words in the book that I had trouble reading, but hey, I’m a doggie! We’re not supposed to read! (Teehee! I’m just kidding. There’s nothin’ under this heading to see.)
I recommend this book, “Dog Photography for Dummies” — if you photograph doggies for fun, or for business, you’re sure to find something in this book to help improve your skills. We did.
