Portrait Of A Deerhound | Scottish Deerhound | New York
The Scottish Deerhound.
The Scottish Deerhound has a cool look. They are similar in some ways to the Irish Wolfhound, but they are slimmer and sleeker.
Scottish Deerhounds have a narrower profile than the Irish Wolfhound. The face and snout is narrower. The legs are thinner and more agile looking.
I like the wire haired look. I can never decide if I would actually enjoy having a dog with that type of fur to snuggle up to though.
This photo is in a style I really like. I was able to capture a nice close up of a Scottish Deerhound. Framing the left side and top of the frame with the dog. And across the bottom of the image you can see the AKC logo.
One cool aspect of this image is that I used a tool I don’t often use at dog shows. When I created this image I used the small mirrorless Nikon 1 J4 and associated lenses. Sometimes I take a variety of tools with me just hoping for an opportunity to use them and this was a perfect opportunity.
Photo details: Nikon 1 J4. 1 Nikon VR 30-110mm f/3.8-5.6. Focal length 77.1mm. ISO 800. 1/1000 sec. f/4.8.
