How Dare You!

Every now and then I get the urge to take some shots of my dog, Dexter. I had one of those moments today. I decided to give him a little bit of peanut butter on the end of a toy (that’s what he’s looking at in this frame) and capture his crazy tongue as he licks it off his nose and the top of his mouth. I got a kick out of this one because it looks like he’s sticking his tongue out at someone…awesome!

Great shot! However you processed this or the lighting you used makes this look pro. The cute dog doesn’t hurt either.

Cute shot, and great depth. 16mm? How close were you to Dexter when you snapped it?

Too funny! What a great capture!

LOVE IT! I love the name too, I really am hoping you named it after a particularly favorite show of mine 🙂

You can never go wrong taking a shot of a pet, especially a dog!

Thanks, all! I told Dexter about all the great comments he got, and…well…he didn’t seem to care 😉

Murphyz: The lens was probably about 6 inches away from his ugly mug 🙂

Great shot. Cute dog!

Love the “Behind the Scenes” capture of that happy tail! One adorable dog . . . but he is a ham!
