Dog Photography: Totally Obsessed

Sorry to go all photography obsessed the last few days, but what can I say?  I'm TOTALLY lovin' our new camera!  So far I've been able to find a few photos from each of my photography "sessions" that are worthy of sharing publicly.  I will admit though, some of the photos that I've taken are horrendous and truly show that I actually have no idea what I'm doing behind the camera.  But, I'm working on improving my skills and learning some things about photography along the way.

Below are some of the pictures that I have captured in the past few days:









Thanks to everyone's advice yesterday, I worked with Athena on an indoor photo training session using some yummy treats to keep her attention.  She did really well when I held a treat in my left hand above the camera and asked her to "stay" while I took some pictures.

My next step is to learn to use Photoshop or Lightroom editing software to improve the pictures that didn't turn out so perfect SOOC (Straight Out of the Camera).  See, I'm even learning how to use photography lingo!
