It’s been a while…in fact I haven’t blogged for a whole month! But that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy taking pictures. I have had a great time growing my pet photography business (NosesTailsPaws Pet Photography) by taking pictures of pets and their owners for upcoming holiday cards. While in a local park photographing a young couple and their adorable dog, Bailee, I captured some late fall color. I am also trying to schedule time with pet owners who have won photography sessions with me through my donations to local nonprofit fundraisers.
I’ve been pulling together images for a presentation in February about my fine art photography as part the Salem Photo League’s Photo Talk series. It’s really difficult trying to figure out exactly what I can say about my photography and my photographic style that might be interesting and valuable. I really hate talking about myself and my images. Maybe they will speak for themselves!
I did get a chance to drive to one of my favorite places…Baskett Slough….for a few quick images. I was surprised to find several deer very near the road so that made the drive really worthwhile. I decided to play a bit…again…with the oil paint filter to give the images a more painterly effect. Oh…and I snapped a shot of a Starbucks barista on my way back from the nature preserve when I stopped for a tall decaf pumpkin spice latte to ward off the early November chill. When I asked him how he was doing he said “livin’ the dream!” LOL! Enjoy the slide show!
