We've reached Week 28 of professional pet photography blog circle Project 52. Our theme for this week is "head tilt." Unfortunately, netiher Paco nor Mr. Bojangles were feeling it this week, and this image is the closes thing I got to a head tilt from either of them. In the past, however, I've gotten some excellent head tilts out of Paco, such as this one below.

While Mr. Bojangles isn't quite the head tilter that Paco can be, he does sometimes give me a slight head tilt (just not this week), as he did in this image. Chihuahua Cairn Terrier Mr. Bojangles poses in black and white Tilt your head to the next blog from Lynda from Heartstrings Photography based in Hamilton, New Zealand, then head over to visit the rest of the blog circle until you end up back here.

Usually, the eyes have it, but our professional pet photography Project 52 blog post is in by a nose this week. For Week 27 we were tasked with focusing on noses. In any photo session, my main goal is to focus on the eyes, but sometimes it's fun to focus on different features of the animal you're photographing. This week, it's all about the nose with Mr. Bojangles and Paco.

Now nose on over to see Danyel with Wag to My Heart, and then nose around the rest of the blog circle until you end up back here. If you would like to book a custom pet portrait session, use the hot pink "BOOK NOW" button to the right of this post (at the bottom of your screen on mobile), send us an email to suzi [at] petlovephotography.com, or give us a call at 513-288-1650 in the Greater Cincinnati area or at 650-382-3242 in the San Francisco Bay Area.

It's Friday and that brings us to another professional pet photography Project 52 blog post. This week we are at Week 26, which means the year is already half over! How time flies. Our topic for this week's images was "landmark." I've photographed Mr. Bojangles at several of Cincinnati's more prominent landmarks before so wanted to do something a little different. This week we visited Mariemont and although we've posted photos taken in Mariemont before we haven't used this particular location before. Our photos for this week are at the Mariemont Inn, which was built in 1926 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Mariemont itself is a National Historic Landmark, so we couldn't go wrong with using any scenery in this charming planned community.

This past Monday we had the opportunity to participate in the Red Dog Pet Resort & Spa Yappy Hour hosted at their Cincinnati location. It was a great inaugural event held in their outdoor dog park. Their dog park offers lots of space to run and fun activities for dogs. The Yappy Hour featured refreshments for humans and dogs, paw print art from the ladies of Pug Fair, adoptable dogs from Three Sisters Pet Rescue/Ohio Hound Rescue, and a raffle with prizes from Red Dog and Pet Love Photography

I had the opportunity to take some pictures of this fun event and Mr. Bojangles had the opportunity to run around and meet some new dogs and have fun. Here are some of my favorite pictures from this fun social event for people and dogs.

If you'd like to see the rest of the images from this event, follow this link to the full gallery. For more information on all that Red Dog Pet Resort & Spa has to offer, visit their website.

It's Friday, so that means we have another professional pet photography Project 52 blog circle post. Our theme for Week 24 is HDR or high dynamic range. Basically, high dynamic range is the range between the lights and darks of an image. HDR images are typically a series of images blended together to create an image that includes a broader dynamic range than you can get in a single image. For this week's challenge, Mr. Bojangles and I headed out to our favorite local park, which was probably not the best location to shoot HDR images.

I used two different approaches to get my images this week. For the first, I combined three different exposures (not so successfully) to get a final image. I basically combined an overexposed image, an underexposed image, and a properly exposed image to get the final image. This did not turn out the way I was expecting and it's definitely not a good example of HDR photography.

First up is the overexposed image. Next up is the underexposed image. Then the properly exposed image. And, finally, the combined image, which certainly doesn't look that much different than the properly exposed image. Finally, we have a clear winner in the final image, which was created from the properly exposed image and edited using HDR Efex Pro from Nik Software. You can see how the detail is picked out more in this final HDR image. For more HDR images, head over to see Ursula M. Garrison, a freelance photographer based on the South Shore of Lake Superior in Northern Wisconsin, and then around the rest of the blog circle until you end up back here.

It's Week 23 of professional pet photography blog circle Project 52 and the theme of "blue." This week I did blue two ways in that Mr. Bojangles is wearing a blue tie...a bow tie, of course. I also chose to photograph him during the blue hour. The blue hour is a period of twilight where the light appears blue. Because you can't see the sky in this image you don't get the full effect of the blue light, but you can see a blue cast to the light surrounding Mr. Bojangles. Don't be blue, there are more pictures over at Shae Pepper Photography and then go around the rest of the blog circle until you end up back here.

How do the short weeks always seem so long? Anyway, it's finally Friday and that means another professional pet photography Project 52 blog circle post. It's Week 22 and our theme for the week is "black & white." This past weekend I did one of my limited edition "Year of the Dog" headshot sessions at the PetPeople in West Chester. I didn't plan it, but it worked out that quite a few of my doggy clients helped me with what to do for this week's theme.

First up, we have the beautiful border collie, Spader. This gorgeous older girl was my best poser of the day. Every image I took of her was spot on.

And while the "year of the Dog" limited edition sessions are headshots, I did take full body images of most of the dogs so that the pet parents have more looks to choose from than just a headshot. How adorable is Spader's sitting pose?

Next up we have Evie. This adorable girl is only 6 months old. Still a puppy and so very regal!

And finally, we have Halo, the sheltie. This gorgeous girl is also a therapy dog. Technically, Halo isn't just black and white, because she's a merle so that means there are shades of gray, as well (but it still counts for black and white.)

Look at all that floof!

To see more black and white images, head over to see Danyel Rogers from Wag to my Heart serving the Portland, OR Metro Area, then head around the rest of the blog circle until you end up back here.

It seems this week sped by and it's Friday again, so that means we have another professional pet photography Project 52 blog post. Our theme for Week 21 was "Cityscape." When you think of a landscape, you think of anything but a city; so, a cityscape is kind of the opposite of a landscape. My cityscape for this week does include some landscape, but it also contains the cityscape of Downtown Cincinnati as seen from Devou Park in Covington, Kentucky

I knew for this week that I wanted to have the Cincinnati skyline as my backdrop and the best views of it tend to come from the hills around the city. I hadn't been to Devou Park for years, but I'm always seeing pictures from other photographers with the spectacular backdrop of the city. It was the BF's birthday and he had the day off work, so we packed up Mr. Bojangles and went to the park. It was a picture postcard day, but also quite warm in the sun, so I first had Mr. Bojangles sit on my reflector (the black disc underneath him) as I didn't want his paws or bottom to burn. Since the picnic table was covered up for some frames of shooting, I decided to remove the reflector and have Mr. Bojangles sit on a slightly cooler (he wasn't going to get burned) table. And, since it was a family outing (even though the rest of our furry family wasn't with us), we decided to take a family portrait to commemmorate the BF's birthday. To see more cityscapes, visit Elayne Massaini do PET Photos de Sao Paulo, Brazil, then travel around the rest of the blog circle until you end up back here.

This Saturday I will have a booth at the Montgomery Farmer's Market in Montgomery and on Sunday I will be at the PetPeople in West Chester, Ohio, doing "Year of the Dog" headshots. Call us at 513-288-1650 to book your appointment; walk-ins welcome as we have the time. If you would like to book a custom pet portrait session, use the hot pink "BOOK NOW" button to the right of this post (at the bottom of your screen on mobile), send us an email to suzi [at] petlovephotography.com, or give us a call at 513-288-1650 in the Greater Cincinnati area or at 650-382-3242 in the San Francisco Bay Area.

It's Week 20 of professional pet photography Project 52 blog circle and our topic for the week is "humor." I wracked my brain all week to come up with a really great idea, but never quite decided what I wanted to do. At the very last minute, inspiration struck me as a came across a Halloween costume hat I'd actually bought for my cat, Diana. So, I packed up Mr. Bojangles, the hat, another prop, and we headed to our favorite local park.

The little Halloween costume hat inspired me to make Mr. Bojangles a fortune teller in the woods...even better, I already owned a crystal ball I had bought for photography but had yet to use. Perfect!

The really humorous thing about this image is that I only realized when I got home and was looking at the pictures on my computer that the veil should have actually gone over Mr. Bojangles' nose. Maybe that's why he's laughing at me. LOL!

For some more humor head over to see Nancy Kieffer Photography serving Central New York, the Adirondacks, and beyond, then travel around the rest of the blog circle until you end up back here.

This Saturday I will be at the PetPeople in Springboro, Ohio, doing "Year of the Dog" headshots. Call us at 513-288-1650 to book your appointment; walk-ins welcome as we have the time. If you would like to book a custom pet portrait session, use the hot pink "BOOK NOW" button to the right of this post (at the bottom of your screen on mobile), send us an email to suzi [at] petlovephotography.com, or give us a call at 513-288-1650 in the Greater Cincinnati area or at 650-382-3242 in the San Francisco Bay Area.
