It’s National Puppy Day! I was informed by a coworker that’s what today is, and since I have a puppy, I thought I’d celebrate here by posting a few new photos of him. National Puppy Day is a day to celebrate puppies, and to encourage people to adopt dogs and puppies from rescues and shelters. We got Sputnik from a rescue and he’s still a puppy at nine months old ( and over 70 pounds). It’s great time to share these photos!
Now, you may notice the photo above has a blurry, dreamy effect to it. That’s because I used a Diana F+ lens on a special camera mount made for Canon DSLR’s. I haven’t used it in a long time, so I figured it’d be fun to experiment with it, taking photos of Sputnik.
Since you have to shoot your photos this way in Manual mode, you need lots of light and a subject that stays still. I had neither, but I managed to get a few good photos.
Here’s a few more.
I have a few more in a Flickr album, if you’re interested.
Have a great National Puppy Day! Hug your puppy, even grown up puppies. I know I will be.
