Animals are one of my weak photography points (landscapes being the other), and IMO, it’s a good idea to try and improve weaknesses so that I’m at least passable. Never know – a paying opportunity to photograph animals could arise!
Crows often perch on the very tippy top of a juniper tree about, I’d guess, 200 yards away from my apartment. I thought it’d make a neat image: a lone crow on a gray desolate day. On this particular day, it was quite gloomy and windy, and my shutter speed was 1/40th of sec. There’s a bit of a motion blur from the wind as a result.
This is my old man. He almost always looks so stoic and disapproving in photos; definitely not the stereotypical happy smiling golden. He usually hides his face when I point the flash in his direction, but I managed to get a few shots of him with his eyes open. Bribery helps! Hot dogs yum!
The rear white wall came out light gray due to insufficient lighting – I only used one light here – so I brightened it up a bit in post processing.
If anyone photographed their pet or animals this week, I’d love to see them!
