World Photography Day

World Photography Day

Photography

Happy Friday…and Happy World Photography Day! Yup, you read it right. In honor of World Photography Day, I took a photo of my most favorite subject. Polo. He’s been my most loyal model since the inception of my business and a single day hasn’t passed that I haven’t been incredibly thankful for his presence in my life.

Go grab your camera and shoot something today! Happy Friday!

**Updated**
For those who asked, this photo was taken with the 50mm, f/1.2, 1/2500 160 ISO

    There’s something about our dogs that is so wonderful to photograph! Now, is this world photography day ordained by you, or someone else?

    Great photo. Almost makes me want a small dog (well my wife says the only kind we can get is a small one…but I digress). Is that a tilt shift or just a great wide open "1.??" shot in a prime?

    I didn’t even know there was a world Photography day! How neat.

      8.19.11 - 4:47 pm

  14. anneliese -

    Is it sad that the only thing I notice in the pictures of Polo is that he is NOT wearing a leash and he stays still?! lol Yay for world photography day! Time to bust out my rebel and get my photog on!! 😉

  42. Rachel Marie Photography -

    I love when Polo makes an appearance! You should put a modeling portfolio together for him and get his professional modeling career going. 😉

    World Photography Day, huh? Thanks for the reminder, I need to get out and shoot something!

      8.19.11 - 5:55 pm

  46. Lindsey -

    what a perfect portrait – I love the scale even in this wide angle he commands the center of attention he so deserves.

      8.19.11 - 6:04 pm

  47. Hayley -

    My dog is also my most loyal subject, but he would run off if I put him on a sidewalk without a leash. Good boy, Polo!

      8.19.11 - 6:06 pm

  48. Donna Richens -

    Fantastic as always…center of your world no doubt 🙂 I would love to know how on earth you get Polo to stay there out in the open, it wouldn’t happen with our dogs Fagin and Mitzi, unless confined to the house, they would always rather be somewhere else! 🙂

      8.19.11 - 6:38 pm

  49. rich -

    polo’s got his pose DOWN. what a pro!

      8.19.11 - 7:37 pm

  50. Wayne -

    Your site is probably the best looking photography site I have seen. I have recently taken up photography so I have been looking around.

    Anyway, I am a dog lover too and love the photo!!

      8.19.11 - 7:42 pm

  51. Brooke Summer Photography -

    It would be a miracle if I could get my dog to just sit there like that! 😉

      8.19.11 - 8:05 pm

  52. Judy -

    Your pictures and your posts always make me smile….Thank you so much..

      8.19.11 - 8:30 pm

  53. Shefali Lindsey -

    I LOVE Polo photos! Would you have any suggestions on where to look for cute little Maltese pups like Polo? My husband and I have serious puppy fever and want a Maltese pup. Love some insight! Thanks girl!

      8.19.11 - 8:49 pm

  54. LEOLAK -

    POLO PIC!!!! Ahh…..these give me a smile every time!! I had my camera all set to go w/ me today…and I forgot it in my mad dash out the door. Air and Water show this weekend is Chicago…I’ve been stuck at my desk and hearing the f-16s fly over is making me sad (I wanna see)!!! Happy Friday!

    Have you ever considered publishing a photo book of Polo? I bet it would be a great seller.. you could even have some of the profits go to the local shelter there. 🙂 Happy Saturday!

  64. k -

    In the shade you shot at 1/2500? Is Polo a really twitchy dog or is that just what you have to do at f 1.2?
