I have been giving a lot of thought as to how I might construct my first blog post and the truth is, I always get distracted with working up another portrait, looking at other people’s work or, shockingly, actually making pictures. I have never felt that my words have been able to fully explain my outlook on life, sense of humor, or much else in the realm of creative writing. I often joke with my husband, Ian, that life would be a lot easier if I could just hold up flash cards to help me explain what I’m saying. Actually, life would be a lot easier if he could just read my mind already.
I intend this blog to not only showcase my new work, but also to be somewhat educational. Since I am an animal photographer you can expect lots of fur, feathers and scales, both wild and domestic. When I come back from a session I’ll talk about the wonderful critters that I just met and provide some insight into how I constructed the shoot. When I come back from the field I’ll talk about the wildlife I encountered and the environment they live in along with the challenges and rewards of being there. I’m not going to hold back on “photographic secrets” because there aren’t any.
Lastly, I want this blog to be fun. There is enough bad news in the world so I hope this space provides a few minutes of relief. Here it is folks, the debut blog entry for Mountain Dog Photography’s Miscellaneous Mischief. The good stuff is yet to come. As always, email or call me with any comments or ideas that you’d like to see up here in my corner of cyberspace.
Peace and furballs,
