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!


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.


Piggy @ his 7 years old birthday party!


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 ūüėÄ


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 ? ūüėÄ


Lulu looks so calm and sits still on the chair

(because she just had her dinner)



Thanks for stopping by my blog and have a nice weekend!

Next we have About A Dog Photography by Cahlean Klenke 

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.


Lulu (Pug) & Piggy (Puggle) are getting ready for their food while Grandma readies their foods.


Spoiled Piggy can’t wait to have his dinner.


Piggy :  Yay! Finally have my delicious dinner.

Meet Gus

Yeehaw! Look at the big smile from Gus!

Gus, black pug, will be turning 12 years old in December.


Gus will do anything for treats!


Gus’s grandmother made him several costumes, which looks awesome on him.

Here we have Pumpkin Gus!


Gus: Am I cute?


Gus: Do I look colorful with my hair?


Gus: Ready for a flight with my Kitty Hawk?

Gus wishes everybody a happy halloween!

Thank you, Sara, for the amazing evening with Gus.

Project 52 : Fall

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” –¬†,¬†

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.


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.


Meanwhile, I also love the ABSTRACT style.


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

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

Project 52 : Low Angle

Happy Friday everyone!

This week theme is Low Angle, capture ideally from below eye level of dogs.

Piggy and Lulu is pretty short and it is not easy to capture from low angle.

To get a better low angle, I let them sit on the chair.


Got quick snap while Piggy staring at the sky!


Another one with Lulu!

 Up next, we have Spotty Nose Pet Photography by Karen Ramos

Project 52 : Over Post Processing

This week’s theme for Project 52 is Over Post Processing.

“Many of us strive to make our photos look natural, but for this week,

I’d like to you to do the opposite, and go crazy with the post processing. ¬†A photo that is pretty obviously edited. Think creative, stylistic or artistic.”

  One of my favorite artists is Andy Warhol, as known as The Prince of Pop Art.

During my college year, one of the projects for my oil painting class is “Which Artist Inspired You?”

I picked Andy as my inspiration because I really love his colorful art style!

The painting below is the outcome of the project: Baby Piggy!


For this project, I did the same as I did for the painting; except this time, with Lulu as the subject accompanied with Photoshop’s assistance!


This is inspired by Andy Warhol’s POP ART.

To see more of Project 52, we have Sue Collura Studio

Project 52 : Negative Space

TGIF! It’s Project 52 day!

This week’s theme is Negative Space.

Here we have Lulu the Pug, sitting patiently while I’m taking pictures of her.


I also added the bright pink color as the background  to gain a stronger emphasis on Lulu.


Wanna see more example about Negative Space?

Here we have Chase & Snap Pet Photography from New Jersey

Project 52 : Street Art

This week’s theme for Project 52 is Street Art.

We took the photos at Lewis Reflection Square Park, downtown of Wichita, Kansas.


IMG_0316There are 31 bronze sculptures along the streetscape.

Lulu is sitting on the chair and starring at the men playing guitar.

Found an interesting sculptures, bronze lunch counter.

We put Lulu on the bronze chair and its turn out funny photos.


There’s a pug stop by trying to order some foods…. IMG_0331¬†Lulu : ¬†Ma’am , I would like to order some …


Lulu : Excuse me… are you listening ??

We are laughing out loud when Lulu was paying so much attention to the sculptures.
