Project 52, NEW

We are starting off 2016 with a very apt theme for Project 52: NEW.  I have so many new things planned for 2016 already that it was hard to decide how I would run with the theme.  I’ll be working on marketing, setting up an Instagram account, creating a list of new photography models (horses, cats, & even sheep!), some graphite drawings planned, and there will eventually be a web site tied to this blog.  Hoof N Paw is stepping it up a notch and I’m so excited!

In the end, I decided that it was high time to work on off camera flash for this weeks theme.  I’ve had a flash unit but only used it once, outside.  Never inside.  I prefer the light of the sun.  This week, however, our snow was going through a melt-off (that icky, brown muck) so I needed to take photos inside and with the flash.   I played around with how the light bounced off my ceiling for quite a while.  The Border Collie boys got a bit bored with me but I love the end results!


Yes, Mr. Balan is a gentleman wearing flowers, hehe.  I found the flower clip at Hobby Lobby this week and had to get it for all the future pet ladies I photograph.  I told Mr. Balan that he would need to oblige me, this time, and wear them so that I could see how they worked out.

As in most of my photos, I used my Canon 85mm f1.8 lens.  I have the 50mm but the 85 just can’t be beat.

Now, please head over to Shelley Castle Photography for more NEW photos.  Link below…

  1. Border collies are the best. Love all your photos, but my favorite is the one where Mr. Balan is in profile in the chair.
