Shake, Shake, Shake – Dogs In Motion

September 15, 2011 by  
Filed under Animals, Art and Design

Pet photographer Carli Davidson of Portland, Oregon will take portraits of you and your pet, be it a dog, cat, goat or even an armadillo. Like many pet photographers, she will shoot them with and without their owners and is more than capable of capturing the special bond between human and animal. While the portraits are nice, it’s her series “Shake” that’s really worth sharing. In black and white and color photos, Davidson captures dogs shaking their heads. Ears flying, foam flinging and fur all a frenzy. The distorted expressions - half-grimace, half-smile – are familiar to many a dog owner, but when caught with a camera are truly mesmerizing:

The photos we have here are for everyone. These will struck a chord not only with photography enthusiasts but with practically everyone who cannot help but gush over all creatures furry, especially cat and dogs. Now these two are considered proverbial enemies. Place them in an enclosed area and you will only be asking for trouble. Soon, you will hear shrieks and growling to make your blood boil. But that’s not always the case, as demonstrated by (most of) these photos. Perhaps you’re one of the pet-owners out there who has canine and feline friends who get along. Consider yourself lucky. And while you’re at it, take out your camera and chronicle the most adorable relationship that you will ever witness.

Here are some tips to help you along: Get close. If they are your pets, they probably are already familiar with your camera. So get close and capture their paws or noses together. Of course, if they are taking a photo of a dog and cat that you have never met before, getting close is out of the question. Either of them will get protective of each other and attack you. Use a good lens if you want to capture the tender moment. Another tip to remember is to consider their point of view. Don’t limit yourself from taking a photo in an upright or even sitting position. Crouch or better yet, place the camera on the ground to take a great photo. Other things to consider are capturing movement and letting the personality of your furry friends shine through the photos.

29 Unseen Breathtaking HDR Photos

According to Wikipedia, HDR is “high dynamic range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allow a greater dynamic range of luminance between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than current standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods. This wide dynamic range allows HDR images to more accurately represent the range of intensity levels found in real scenes, ranging from direct sunlight to faint starlight.”

An HDR photo is easy to spot. It has luminance in areas that a normal photo will not show. An HDR photo of a room in a sunny afternoon, for instance, will show the light coming from the sun outside and the light INSIDE the room. A normal photo of the same room will most likely show you an overexposed part for the windows or a very dark interior.

For those who are photography enthusiasts, creating HDR photos can be quite fun. This is done using both the camera and a photo editing software, such as Photoshop and Photomatix. Using both camera and computer software is basically the way to achieve HDR photography. Steps involved are taking photos of the same subject in different exposures, merging them into one HDR photo using Photoshop or Photomatix, processing the result, and then tone mapping. The procedures may sound very complicated to some people but you will be rewarded with astounding photographs. You will see from the photos below that results vary from fantastical to emotive to just pure photography magic. Give it a try!

Amazing Ballet Figures Taken at The Right Moment

August 15, 2010 by

Ballet is a kind of performance dance, which originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th century, and which was further developed in France, England, and Russia as a concert dance form. The early portions preceded the invention of the proscenium stage and were presented in large chambers with most of the audience seated on tiers or galleries on three sides of the dancing floor. It has since become a highly technical form of dance with its own vocabulary.
