A Quiet Moment | Basenji | New York
Dogs in action doing things. That is always great to see. It creates great photos.
But one aspect that is less often seen and even harder to photograph is the quiet moments.
The moments shared between a dog and their people.
For me the close quiet moments are more indicative of what life with a dog is like for me.
I love this photo of a Basenji being held by its human.
They are snuggled up close and relaxing before their turn in the dog show ring.
The Basenji is calm and relaxed with a slight curve to its lips that almost looks like a little smirk.
This photo was taken in the more behind the scenes staging area of the dog show.
Under the big tents. The tents are white and create nice shade so the lighting is much dimmer. So the combination of the white tents and looking out towards the much more brightly lit scene out from under the tent creates this bright white background.
I did a little post processing work to lighten the foreground and dim the background a little in this photo.
Photo details: Nikon D300. Nikon 70-200 f/2.8. Focal length 98mm. ISO 400. 1/1250 sec. f/2.8.
