For my second JRN 521 assignment, I was to shoot a nature photo and a feature. I would like to shoot both of these again because I did not do my best.

521 First Assignment: Portraits



Although they may not be the type of portraits you were expecting, I have been considering the possibility of photographing pets for a living. I thought I would give it a go with two of my dogs. Cole and Stella. Cole because of his tongue. Stella because she is still young and cocks her head at every new sound. I wanted to capture their personalities. I was recently inspired by a photographer I stumbled across in Dog Fancy magazine. He photographs shelter dogs. Awesome.
