Meet Jaggu!

Dogs can be quite photogenic as well!

Got a request to photograph a 8 months old Golden Retriever named Jaggu. It was quite shy because it was its first experience at the location we were shooting at which was the locally well-known Friendship Park. For me, it was my first time photographing a canine. Indeed, I was nervous beforehand but it ended a fruitful experience.

It was unfortunate for us as it rained a little before the shoot. Mr Great Sun got blocked by the Gloomy Gangsta Clouds. However, overcast day light can be welcoming at times. I requested the owner to bring along some dog treats to manipulate motivate Jaggu's movements as it has no idea what am I doing with this black squary thingy that creates clicking sound. For someone who doesn't have much knowledge on canine, I never knew the existence of Spinach flavored dog treats.

Taking pictures of Jaggu's body parts can create interesting abstract photographs.

Below are two of my personal favorite

EF 50mm f/1.8 at wide open is just nice isn't it?

The low perspective with a human element as background just makes it just nice for my taste

The owners - Ching and Nik

Thanks guys giving me the opportunity! It was a pleasure to meet and photograph Jaggu =)

From now on, any dogs would like to be photographed is most welcome!
