    Well the dog is a darling !!

    If you are going for a special look for your dog, I'd try getting a backround that makes him really stand out.

    If he/she will obey without a leash on, that would even be better.
    I generally shoot my dog with a long lens with a wide aperature to blur the backround and get him very crisp.


    If you'd like to see an example here is a link:

    Intense

    I'd really LOVE to see some close up of his face?

    What a beauty!

    She's a girl. The problem is I was in a busy park with lots of children and the parents really don't like it if I keep my dog off leash. Also there were tons of rabbits and animals that she was chasing like crazy.

    Your dog shot is amazing! What lens were you using?

    Thanks, I understand completely. I used a AF-Nikkor 55-200mm.

    I also should mention that I cropped his photo for that shot.
    You could try that with your dog and get a really great head shot that would be awesome.

    I understand about the leash completely. I am surrounded by 1,000 acres of land so no distractions like you mentioned...plus my dog is a wuss, he won't go far from me.

    :lol:

    The first one is over exposed. I like the expression on her fast in the last one. Seems to be glaring at you.

    I did do an edit on this but because of the low resolution, it came out a bit 'choppy' looking.

    This is sort of the look or looks I was thinking of...

    Try some more shots of her face and head...;)
