These shots were taken at our local dog park. I do not even know these adorable pups. When I shot these back in 09 I was focused for a few months just on doggy butts. I think shooting a pup from behind is a great way to play creatively and focus just on composition, story and mood. In these images there is only one story going on …water, water, and more water! I loved watching these dogs at play.

If you have a Great Dane or other large tall breed, consider laying on the ground and shooting up at them with the sky above, while they face away from you …. a photo like that may not be a traditional portrait, but it would tell a great story about a huge, larger than life sort of canine.
