Title: Let's see your pets
Post by: MattBurt on April 11, 2017, 01:56:12 PM
Hopefully this isn't too whimsical for this place. I think pet photos when done well can be very engaging and maybe even artistic.
So let's see 'em! Not the snapshots so much as the photographs.

Here's a new one from this morning of my dog Luna. She joins me on a lot of landscape shoots and (usually) makes the experience even nicer.

I also have a cat that can be pretty photogenic. She doesn't wind up in as many as the dog but finds her way into my photos at least every couple of weeks, one way or another.

Thanks. She is very sweet with us but takes a little time to warm up to strangers. She worries too much!

Those are both great. That's the kind of thing I'm hoping to see here.
That's Astro. She almost always looks surprised. :)

Sorry to hear about Jake! My condolences.

This is a good photo and the kind of thing I was hoping to see more of in this thread.

Snapshots have their place but I'd much rather see photos with attention paid to composition, lighting, dof, and anything else that contributes to a great looking shot. Like we do with our more serious shots but including our (or anyone's) pets.

One thing I really like is getting white on white shots with Luna. She looks great in the snow for a high key shot. I may not have a chance to get more of these kinds of shots for months now so here are a couple of my favorites from this past winter.

Cola is next. She is busy keeping the world safe from the rock chuck menace.

That shot of Hamish (the orange cat near the top of this thread) is from my Samsung phone. I don't think I could have gotten the shot with any other camera.

I believe it was Michael Reichman himself who initially "banned" cat photos, but even he never enforced the ban.
I posted at least one cat photo back then and it wasn't removed.

Well this thread is still alive!

I think if this thread is a place to put and discuss pet photos that were taken with care and maybe some discussion about how to achieve good ones or make them better, it might be a good contribution to the community here.
I didn't put any effort into pet shots this weekend so I have no new images to share today. Maybe tomorrow...

It takes time.  Everyone grieves differently. We lost our dog on 28 July.  Within a week, my wife was ready to replace her, but I was still grieving.  I am glad you are giving your wife time for her grief.

Our cat Hugo (formally, the Baron Hudo van der Lyonne) graced our lives with his presence for some 17 years in the 1960s through 1980s. Artist's model, musician, and bon vivant, his image was one of only two non-human nudes in the exhibit of about 100 prints that Minor White chose for "Being Without Clothes" at M.I.T.'s Hayden Gallery in 1970 (also published as an Aperture book.)

While my wife and I were out at dinner celebrating our wedding anniversary, Hugo escaped and apparently was struck by a car. resulting in a badly broken leg.
After surgery and two weeks in the hospital, he was allowed home, wearing a splint on the bad leg.

The first day he could move around freely, he let us know that he wanted to go out. Our apartment was on the second floor. If we had let him out this door to our back porch, he had intended to jump down onto the roof of the garage, and from there onto the first floor porch and onto the ground to explore.

We, the cruel humans, refused to open the door for him. He lived many happy years thereafter.

We also have 3 cats and a total of 2 to 6 dogs depending on how many dogs our daughters bring us for weekend care. Besides a white shepherd pictured, a papillon (she is the alpha bitch, at 7 lb.), great poodle, Portuguese waterdog, Dutch shepherd and a mean looking mixture of Dutch shepherd and German shepherd (presumably).

We have a Bengal and they are nice cats.  In many ways more dog like than cat like.

Unfortunately, ours likes to talk... a lot... loudly... at 0200.  Not fun.

But she is a good cat, although my opinion often changes at about 0201.

I am sorry for your loss.

Clyde is beautiful! Cats are wonderful creatures. Here's another Lion King impression...

Not my pet, Emilio belongs to no one, but hangs out at the climbers hut at Frey Valley in Argentina in northern Patagonia. I was climbing there some years ago and stopped on a ledge for a break and was stunned to suddenly hear a cat meowing from about 30 ft. above me. At this point I was several hundred feet up the side of Aguja Frey. He casually worked his way down a series of ledges and then surveyed the scene below while I snapped some shots.

He is called Hugo, follows me everywhere,sleeps by the bed ... and just to show what the breed should be like when recently he met a young 4-year old girl for the first time he just sat beside me and let her crawl all over him without demur and then licked her hand.

Matt, you definitely have your own style of photography. I am always able to pick out your photos. ... Good stuff.

Thank you Bob. I don't really try for a particular style but it's good to know I have one. :)

Here's Luna again. She and my son came out to shoot last night and we got a nice sunset to top off a fun evening. She's waiting for her reward for standing still.

Luna gets spooked by thunder and becomes pretty clingy. Here she is clinging.

That's mom and her six kids. I keep hoping the gators in the river don't reduce their number. On the other hand, gators gotta eat.

I probably ought to do that. After all, this is a pet show. Here's a limpkin kid from this morning. He's hollering for his mom. That'll just have to do for now. :P

Okay Eric, by request. Here's my friendly, smiling gator. Who needs a dog or a cat?

In Florida, the gators, birds, bugs, and swamps never cease to amaze me. I love the scenery here. Too bad most folks associate Florida with water (well it is a peninsula), theme parks, Miami, and retirement communities.

Are you familiar with Clyde Butcher's work? He is a master of B & W Florida landscapes. I met him a few weeks ago while I was at the camera store in Bradenton (Johnson's Photo Imaging). I say "the camera store" because it is the best brick and mortar photo store on either side of the peninsula. I'm sure Miami has some top-notch photo stores.

Right, Bob. Clyde had a show at the Maitland Museum year before last. Fascinating stuff.
