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!


For more Shadows themes from Project 52 team members,

we have StinkDog Photos by Deanna Hurt

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 😀


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 : 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.

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 : 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.

Project 52 : Reflection

Thank you Mary for this week topic, Reflection. (it was really fun! )

Piggy is sitting in front of the mirror right next to the sink in the bathroom.

The reflection from the mirror makes Piggy look like he has a twin 😀


Piggy : Is that my twin ?


what a goofy look

This is Champ standing right in front of a door.

Love the shadow reflect on wood floor !IMG_0003-2
