There was a rain break this afternoon and I thought I would take the opportunity to walk around the neighborhood with my camera — and see what I can discover. As I was putting on my shoes, the furry kids started to jump around me with excitement. When I told them “NO, you stay”, they looked so disappointed; I felt guilty. Then as I walked out the driveway and past the big piles of leaves, a bright idea came to mind. I thought it would be fun to shoot the furry kids playing in the leaves. It wasn’t as easy as I thought. They weren’t exactly thrill about the modeling session and protested but… in the end, they were willing to work for chicken jerky. 🙂
One of the biggest challenges about photographing Max and Evie together is probably their contrasting fur colors. Because of Evie’s white fur and dark features, the camera has a difficult time detecting the correct exposure. If I set the exposure for Evie, Max usually end up being too dark and vice versa — if I set it for Max then Evie’s fur ends up being over exposed and lack contrast. In this case, I set the exposure for Evie and that way in Lightroom3, I have more room to play with the lighting to bring out the correct exposure in Max and the surrounding elements.

I love taking photos of my furry kids. Their wonderful personality and silly antics provides me with humorous entertainment but also a challenging opportunity to be a better photographer. Shooting the furry kids has helped me learn how to use the settings on my camera better than any other subjects. Most of the times, it’s a hit or miss kind of situations to get a good shot. Although with patience and treats, there are moments I have captured that are just precious.

The cool, grey, rainy spring weather is making me rather lazy lately. I spent the weekend doing… absolutely nothing creative with the camera, nor my artwork. Instead, I was mostly a junk food junky couch potato. So… on this glorious grey, rainy Monday — I find myself unmotivated and with nothing to post but a snap shot of my furry kids.

Here are some furry portraits from our outing at the Marymoor dog park. It was very interesting to sit and observe the expressions from all the different dogs. If only we could tell what they were thinking — then again, maybe not. I’m sure they probably think we humans are a strange breed.
The first two furry kids belong to me, Maximus and Ms. Evie.
Maximus the wonder dog. A loyal companion who understands over 60 commands and words, love to play sports, and will wipe his paws before entering the house.
Ms. Evie, the designer dog. She is a foodie consultant who loves to taste test all types of cuisine. And knows how to
beg get what she wants with her sad puppy eyes.
Here is another designer dog, the Golden-doodle (a combination of a golden retriever and a poodle) with the best looking hairdo prize.

The sun came out and the sky — bright blue. Quickly, I grabbed the camera, the restless fury kids, and some day old bread. We drove down to the Mukilteo ferry terminal for some fun… and entertainment.
It’s impossible to keep a golden out of the water. The water was freezing cold but Max didn’t care. He was ready to play.
After putting the furry kids back in the car. I got out the day old bread and set off to shoot some birds. With the bread, I had the birds practically eating it out of my hand. I spent the next hour throwing out little crumbs and watching them fight for it. I know… not very nice. But hey, I got some good shots. 😉

After weeks of rainy weather, we finally got a break yesterday — what a gorgeous sunny day. We took advantage of it and went on a road trip with our restless furry kids. Without a specific destination in mind, we decided to take the Interstate 90 — also known as the Snoqualmie Pass in Washington State. It’s a very beautiful scenic drive that cuts through the Cascade Mountains. The Interstate 90 eventually ends somewhere in the State of Massachusetts.
