Today I spent two hours at the Doggy Den where I had my annual quota of dog hugs, nuzzles, drool and licks. Great fun! The owner kindly allowed me in after I explained that I was building my portfolio and wanted some new and interesting photos opportunities. I was also keen to get some practice in a different environment where I needed to use my flash.
It is a fantastic place – the dogs are happy and well looked after. All of the staff have a great way with the dogs and they are very knowledgeable about dog behaviour and socialisation. When I finally get my own dog, I’d be very happy to send them to the Doggy Den!
On this occasion I was massively challenged. The flourscent lighting, manic, constantly moving dogs, use of flash…bla bla. It was a difficult shoot but I was happy with a handful of the shots. My photo of the day is of one of the members of staff and a particularly sweet cockapoo!
