Okay, our first installment of 52 weeks of pictures. I decided to bring my camera up to the barn on Wednesday. I sat this riding lesson out again. I haven’t been riding for some time as I have an incredibly herniated disk. I see the surgeon next week. For a while there, I was unable to photograph babies, but I’m able to once again, and in fact have felt pretty good considering. I’m going to try to avoid surgery if possible.
I arrived knowing that we were just at that sweet light time in the evening… my favorite time to shoot. I walked out in the fields with the horses but they were too busy eating to really give me anything good to shoot. Well, here comes this little border collie pup – His name is Ranger… he was cute as a button and I decided he would be my first subject for the 1/52 project. With one blue eye and one brown eye, I figured my “shot” would be a closeup of his cute little face maintaining eye contact. I shot a bit, but I really wasn’t feeling it until I got down on the ground and saw the sweet light…. and that was it.
I loved the pink tones that were picked up in this shot. I used my 85/1.4 stopped down to 3.5, ISO 3200 on the Nikon D3.
Well once Erynn got ahold of Ranger, he was fast asleep in her arms… she has a way with animals 😉
