Photography Show and Some Other Stuff

Remember that photography show I was supposed to have in February and got canceled due to snow? Well, the rescheduled date is tonight! Ack! I am a bundle of nerves.

Few things I would like to update everyone on, is that I have had an Etsy store for a few months now and recently overhauled it for a way to sell my photography. Click the big red button and check it out!

Sunset

Sunset by Jenn Dixon, 2009

I took this photo over my vacation (“staycation”) right outside my house. Too pretty of a sunset NOT to photograph! I actually took quite a few photos and did some funky camera stuff. Watch out more pics during the week!

Playful Rio


Rio 3 by Jenn Dixon, 2009

I love this dog. She is Rio, my friend’s sister’s Rottweiler. She is lovely, loving, friendly, and well-trained. And she was a great model.

I went to Rio’s people’s house to take her photo because my friend said that I should really photograph Rio for my dog photo book since Rio is an expressive and happy dog. She sure was!

I actually got a lot of great Rio photos. It was a fun photo shoot.

Llama

Please don’t spit.

This dude was actually a patient model at the Reading Pet Expo. I’m glad I had a zoom lens and was able to stand a distance away. I got my shots in and them moved along. I didn’t want to press my luck, if you know what I mean.

…..And Another One!!


Australian Cattle Dog Puppy by Jenn Dixon, 2009

It feels good to be sort of on a roll. Another request for a non-paying, non-self-published photo!

NowPublic is a user-generated news site that picked up on this photo for an article about National Puppy Day, which is March 23, by the way, being yesterday. I’m glad I posted my Reading Pet Expo photos right away so the writer could pick up on my pictures.

Pygmy Kids


Pygmy Kids by Jenn Dixon, 2008

I felt the need to add something cute on here today, and these adorable pygmy goat kids are what I chose. Aren’t they cuties? They are probably well-grown and chewing on garbage by now.

With Sam’s help, I got my Strobist kit set up and played with it. I doubt I’ll be able to get the test shots up today, but I will hopefully this week.

Porch


Porch by Jenn Dixon, 2008

I took this on an unusually warm day last January. I just put the camera on the Manual setting and went around my area taking photos.I really should do that again.

I did not get to use my Strobist set up yesterday because I was too dang tired. Seriously. I was in bed by 9PM, which is very unusual for me. I will be giving the setup a try this weekend.

Rustic Colors


Rustic Colors by Jenn Dixon, 2007

I took this with a digital point-and-shoot, to be honest. I only realized how nice the color is and that I managed to get some nice background bokeh there. It’s also got good lighting in my opinion, so it gets a features today.
