Portrait of Sammy. I love this picture. The composition, lighting, attentiveness of Sammy come together to make a portrait image that I can look at and smile about time after time. I don’t take a lot of portrait pictures but if I did this is the type of image that I would try for. I wouldn’t say dogs are an easier subject than humans. I couldn’t ask Sammy to look at me like this. I had to be ready to take the picture when he turned his head and said, ‘how’s this’? And I said, ‘oh Sammy, that’s perfect, that’s awesome’. The lighting for this shot was a single lamp at the corner of the chair. Just enough light to catch the right side of his face and tail. The image is a tight crop in both the camera and in post processing. It was shot with my phone, a Motorola XT1096. A picture like this is loved by people in the dog’s family, but I think the image also has universal appeal and would look good hanging on the wall in any vet’s office or other workplace office setting.
