6/12/a For the love of Dazzle- SOOC

Taken for the 12 Months For Dogs group.

Challenge: "Straight Out Of the Camera" plus 1 other element to get a photo that portrays the song "I can't help, falling in love with you." My extra element was using a tripod and timer.

 

It looks like such a simple shot, but this "simple shot" took WAY more tries than I care to count! I don't have a remote shutter, so the framing, his ears up, him looking at me, me smiling, him smiling, etc. all had to come together in the same shot! In the first few shots, my hair was flying all over the place because of the wind, so I had to go get a hat. But I'm more often than not in a ball cap, so this is more true to life. I would have preferred more of a profile for me, but that was the one thing missing from this one and I'm ok with that! :-)

 

This was my second set-up. The first was an action shot and I just could NOT get the focus/timing to work so I abandoned that idea because taking photos is supposed to be fun, not so frustrating I want to kill something! :-)
