The Weekly Photography Challenge – Dogs

They’re everywhere! Pets, running back and forth across parks, sitting on the couch beside you as you read this post about the weekly challenge… Dogs, man’s best friend or maybe you’re not a fan of them and that’s ok too (Though it might make this assignment difficult!) this week is simple, the theme is ‘dogs’ and it doesn’t really matter how you photograph your dog, as long as you do.

The Hashtag for this week’s challenge is #dPSDogs for Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Of course you can join and share your photograph in our private Facebook group!

Dog on a newspapper

This little chap used to sit on the counter at the little news shop outside Earls Court Tube in London, I’d see him most mornings.

Betsy the Dog

This is ‘Betsy’ (I didn’t get the bloke’s name, just his dog) they were walking down Portobello Road market… Betsy whipped her head around as I went to grab a photo… you know what they say about photographing pets & children! You have to be quick!

Here are a few articles that might help you out with some technique or ideas for photographing your (or someone else’s) dog.
