Yesterday was a beautiful day, and way too good of a day to waste sitting inside!
I’ve been taking a class in photography and had to finish up an assignment for this week’s lecture, and what a perfect opportunity it was to visit Brantford’s Dogford Dog Park!
My assignment this week was three pictures of motion. One had to be stop motion, where everything is frozen and in focus, yet you can tell that the subject is moving. The next is blurred motion, where the background is in focus, but the subject is wizzing by so fast that it’s blurry. And lastly, was pan motion, where the subject is clear, but the background is blurred to show the motion of the camera following the subject.
So I already had my pan motion done, and needed my stop motion. Nancy the famous canoe dog was the star of the day, and the other doggies in the park were more than happy to oblige me as well!
I took about 1500 pics! Can you believe that!? But since I’m not allowed to crop anything at all, I had to make sure I had something perfectly in the frame. Many of the pics were usable, but since there was no editing, I just kept snapping and hoped for the best. Those dogs were fast!
Nancy seriously looks happy in every single picture!
Even when she’s running!
And stopping for a quick pet…
This beauty loved playing catch!
And this one was a joy to watch with all her jumping!
This little cutie, Oliver, was just a sweetheart!
All in all, such a great day! I definitely think that I need to spend more of my time in dog parks!
