    Woot! I took my daughter out for her first ever volunteer day at the puppy shelter, and she was my second shooter. We went and did a photo shoot for the old timers who haven't found homes in over six months. Here's a preview. I'm so proud of her. I shot this with a Sony A7 and a 50mm 1.4 Planar. Hope you enjoy. I know vignette isn't everyone's thing but oh well.

    *Edited to add collection

    Thank you, you two! These dogs spend so much time in their kennels that when they get out, it's on for them. It was a tough gig, especially with a manual focus lens.

    Nice. Pretty dog. I am not a dog expert but I have visited a few animal shelters in the past year and it seems the majority of dogs there are pit pull type dogs. Not sure if that is a pit bull or not but many of them have that head.

    She's a boxer mix. Perhaps she has pit in her. I'm not sure, but many of the ones that we took photos of had the "look."

    I am curious now... Why is this the primary type dog in those shelters?

    Other than the general public perception of them, these dogs can be territorial with their family. They're guard dogs. Unfortunately for these particular dogs, when people bring them in and claim that these dogs "lunged" at another one of their dogs, the shelter has to mark them as dog aggressive and so forth. All of them were so gentle with my daughter that had I had room for them, they'd all come home with me.

    What a great, "Awww, I'm just a cute puppy dog" shot. Those are the ones that sell for the shelter. Good job to her!
