It was a grand evening! The theme was the Great Catsby – and apropros for Hallowween, there were many guys and dolls rocking the roaring 20s attire. Yes, it was another Bow Wow Ball in aid of the Winnipeg Humane Society. It’s such a fun event, and last nights vibe was wild, woof woof. Continue Reading

Ah, the Friday of a long weekend at the height of summer…
The best time of the year for photography around here. The sunsets are long and there’s usually dust in the air from haying activities, or construction so the colour of the light is redder and warmer. And what could be better that spending an evening with dogs? I love dogs – I love smart dogs…
I had the extreme pleasure of photographing some beautiful and highly intellegent gun dogs last night in the fading light of the day. We started at about 7:45 and finished up an hour later. I used a WB setting a little oranger than the regular setting for sunlight. Click here if you don’t know how to change your defualt WB settings – not available on all cameras though…)
Here’s my fav.
Here’s another. WARNING: in the next shots, the dogs is doing what they are supposed to do. It is a little disturbing, at least for me who is not a hunter or a fan of hunting, and an extreme animal lover. However, trained dogs are far better than untrained dogs, and the ability of these dogs to ensure that every bird is retrieved ensures that no bird will suffer, and that whatever is shot will be consumed and not unneccessarily wasted.
If you ARE a hunter I think you will appreciate the moment.
