Standing Tall | Great Dane | New York

The Great Dane is probably one of the breeds of dogs I have photographed the most.

They are a beautiful breed of dog and I am drawn to them for their size.

I have a lot of images of Great Danes that I love. But for a dog that is known for its size I really wanted to try to show an image that gives a good sense of just how big these dogs are. Especially for anyone who has not seen a Great Dane in person.

It can be difficult to show the size of a subject in a photograph in a way that gives a good idea of what it would be like to be there in person. It is often helpful to have an example of something else where we heave a better idea of the general size to compare it to. For this phot I wanted to pair the large dog with their handler.

I like this image of a fawn colored Great Dane with their handler.

The Great Dane is standing tall with its head up and that really lets you get a sense of how big the dog is.

The dogs head comes up to their handlers chest. And this isn’t even one of the larger examples of Great Danes that I have seen.

Photo details: Nikon D300S. Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8. Focal length 200mm. ISO 400. 1/5000 sec. f/2.8.
