As part of my digital-scholarly self-improvement program, I’m working on becoming a better photographer. Taking weekly lessons from this website. Not taking it all that seriously. Just working on it when I can. This week’s assignment is to work on low-angle shots. I took these with a Nikon D3000. 50mm/1.4f lens. Not happy with the lighting, but the framing seems okay, and I’m getting a better sense for depth of field. But the depth of field, I guess, can sometimes be too shallow: I ended up focusing on Rilke’s nose instead of his (would-have-been-more-compelling) eyes. Learning, learning. Anyway, here are the pics.
Good looking dog, eh? I just got back from a month-long trip. Boy did I miss him. He’s getting used to me now again. Whew.
