Inspired by this pose, courtesy of my girl Ruby, I set out to begin a series of dog portraits with special emphasis on their “noses” or “snouts” as my husband calls them.
After a few photo sessions with my canine friends and “their humans,” I began to see or maybe not see something. As I cropped with the camera and later with the images, it became clear that something was missing. Capturing images of a nose without eyes, I was truly missing their personality. The spirit, twinkle and even a little attitude, just wasn’t there.
Maybe Volume II will be titled: “Heads or Tails”… check back for more dog photography!
