Project 52 : Shadows

In photography, we try to avoid unwanted or unnecessary shadows in the pictures.

In fact, adding shadows could be fun and creative too!

Here we have Piggy getting ready to get the treat from Shadow’s hand!

Project 52 : Joy

What are some ways that dogs enJoy their fun?

Hmm..there’s lots of ways!

Maybe having their favorite meals or treats,  the moment their daddy/mommy reach home,

or playing toys.

Champion gets very excited whenever I bring him to the field next to the fishing lake.

Once he is off leash, he will never get tired of running, running and running!

run for joy

Project 52 : Introductions

Happy New Year to all my Project 52 team members!

A new year means a brand new week for the Project 52!

Week 1 : INTRODUCTIONS

My name is Lina ( pronounce as LEE-NA). Yep! A lot of people are confused as to how to pronounce my name :{

During my college year in 2006, I decided to raise a puppy after a long term decision.

I’m not familiar with local breeder, so I surfed online and finally met my little boy!

Piggy, a Puggle (cross breed between Pug & Beagle).

He’s only 6 weeks old when I first met him.

On 2009, I met Lulu when I volunteered at Kansas Humane Society.

A 3 years old Pug who is skinny but a tough girl!

Why I decided to adopted her? Well.. I don’t know.. All I can tell you is it’s love at first sight 😀

Piggy and Lulu get along well. He is very caring and protective of Lulu.

Champion aka Champ, 8 years old Golden Retriever.

We adopted him from a friend who is moving to other state.

He is very active and is always ready to make new friends!

 Whenever me and my fiance walk these kiddos, people will say :”Woo-Hoo, you guys have all the sizes!  Do-Re-Mi “

Project 52 : Framed

Hi everybody, TGIF!

This week’s topic is “Framed”, using compositional elements to frame our subjects.

And I used the dining chair as the frame, which created an interesting layout.

Does it look like Lulu is behind the jail bar ? 😀

Lulu looks so calm and sits still on the chair

(because she just had her dinner)

Project 52 : Kitchen

This is my second time to pick a theme for Project 52.

Besides bedroom, kitchen is always my dogs’ favorite space.

They will always be on time when breakfast and dinner are ready.

Project 52 : Sun/lens flare

TGIF everybody!

This week’s project is  incorporating sun flare into shots and experimenting with subtle to overdone.

-0007-2

Champ is enjoying his morning sun bath on the field.

Sadly I didn’t catch any strong sun flare with it.

This is Zero with the lovely sunset.

To enhance the sun and lens flare in the pictures,

I made it black & white along with orange shadow filter.

Thank you for stop by, here we have Silver & Pixel Photography

Project 52 : Recreate or Imitate

TGIF everybody!

This week’s theme for Project 52 is Recreate or Imitate your favorite art pieces of your favorite artist.

First artist that comes in my mind is Milton Glaser, an American Graphic Designer.

His simple and sharp logo design inspires me the most.

One of his best well-known logo is I (heart) NY

I love puggle

Instead of the heart shape,

I played with Piggy’s image (with almost the shape of heart, REALLY ??) and fill with red

to make it look like I LOVE PUGGLE !

Hope you like it 😀

Next, we have Unleashed! pet portraits by Melissa McCabe

Project 52 : The Rule of Thirds

 Rules of thirds is one of the essential skills that is useful for composition techniques in photography.

A successful off-center composition can create the direction and eye-catching pictures.

Main subject of the picture above is Champ’s eye.

The shadow can also create the nice composition for rule of thirds!

Up Next, we have Guilford Pet Photographer by Kathryn Schauer

Project 52 : Style

This week’s theme is style. Fun, fashion, or photog-style – you decide for this week’s challenge!  Here are some ideas.

A) What photography style are you. 

A while back Jamie wrote this great article on defining your “photodogstyle” – http://www.beautifulbeasties.com/defining-your-photodogstyle/

I reference it every now and than have noticed big changes in the way I was photographing when I first started, to the way I photograph now. 

B) Your dog’s sense of style or fashion! 

C) Any other style you can think of! Have fun! 

I pick the A ! Most of my photos are consider as DOCUMENTARY style.

IMG_0258

I work with my own dogs for most of my photograph.

They has no awarenness to me, and just “do their own thing”

which also create the DOCUMENTARY style for my photos.

IMG_0134

Meanwhile, I also love the ABSTRACT style.

IMG_0012

There’s have a lot of different styles of the photography,

hopefully I will create my very owned style pet photography in the future!
