I think that this assignment was a little bit easier than feature because by its nature it required more planning but also helped provide ready subject matter to be photographed. I chose to go to Dirk’s Fund Golden Retriever Rescue, based out of Pacific, MO, during one of their weekly adoption hours in order to get some photos of the day. My family has been volunteering there since I was in 8th grade, and I know many of the dogs that are there, so it was pretty easy for me to be able to get very involved in the activities of the day while still blending in and having both the volunteers and dogs feel comfortable in my presence and still act naturally. This photo was one of those lucky ones where you are in the right place at the right time and the shutter goes off exactly when you want it to. Content-wise I think that this is one of my favorite photographs that I’ve taken. On the technical side I wish that I would’ve had just a little bit more exposure and really allowed the deep red of Stewart’s (the dog) coat to shine through, especially in contrast to the lightness of my mom’s hair. I also would’ve brought the camera down just a little bit and had the frame include Stewart’s full ear, as well as moved just an inch or two closer so that the frame would be filled just a tiny bit more so there’s not as much mundane background showing. Overall I am extremely pleased with this photo and am looking forward to tackling sports next.
