Caught this dog sunning them self out in front of the bike shop during my daily photo walk. The point of view is really important here. I had to hold the camera a couple of inches off the ground to get the dog’s eye view seen here. It actually gives the dog a bit of an epic feeling. I like how the rim lighting helps separate the dog from the background while the light reflecting off the cement fills in some of the shadows especially on his face is a great touch. The” Dutch tilt” wasn’t intentional but it does help with bring a bit of whimsy to the capture. I think this shot has a timeless feeling which is something I’m always striving for in my photography.
