This week’s #PetPhotographyChallenge is one of composition. “The other end of the leash” challenges us to use our pet’s leash to tell their story. You can do this by having your pet look up at the camera at an angle that looks like the person who is viewing the image is holding the leash, or by having your pet standing or moving forward, getting the same effect.
We’re having a busy week here, and since I knew I already had a lot of this type of photo, I decided to dig out some old shots to share for this. I even knew where to find them for a change, since I take most photos on walks with my camera phone, and those photos are all in one place on my computer. However, some were taken with my DSLR when I had that out for a review we were writing.
Come along on a walk with us!
Autumn is our favorite time of year for walks; with the crisp, cool air and the beauty of the trees and fallen leaves on the ground, contrasting with the still green grass. I chose these shots because I like how they show the road and trails ahead, giving you a sense of where we’re going.
Walks aren’t all about forward motion with dogs, especially if you have a hound dog, or a dog who most likely has some hound in him. We always take time to stop and enjoy the smells.
Now, put on your snowshoes and join us out in the winter woods!
Did you feel like you were there?
