Decided that I needed to do another blog entry, but this will be short because it's nearly 10:30pm and I need to get to bed!
Attended IKC of Chicago for one day, and despite the ring decorations think I got some decent group shots. Was late and missed the Hound Group and most of the Terrier Group though because I had promised to do a couple of breeds that were scheduled late. The IKC is one of the few shows where I actually will run around all day because it is a prestigious show and people often want photos from it. Hopefully my foot will be healed by next year (reinjured an old dog show injury from 1996 believe it or not) and it will be easier to get around. Have posted a number of photos, but still not finished.
I liked this photos with the two black poodles in the Nonsporting Group together. Those of you that are fans on Facebook will recognize them as London and Ami!
Also went to Wisconsin KC this past weekend. A nice well-lit site with ample sized rings, lots of vendors and a big raffle! Have gotten Dobes up, and working on Rotties. I shot mostly Ring 3 which included mostly working breeds, but also a Red Bone Coonhound ... a new breed for me to photograph and quite attractive.
I have a lot of photos of toys and terriers leaping into mid-air ... but not many Dobermans. I have a whole sequence of these on the site. This dog is obviously ready to do some agility!
Something else that was exciting to announce was pre-ordering the new Canon 5D, Mark III. I'm not sure when it will actually arrive, but it has significant improvement over my current camera (Canon 7D) in low light situations so I'm very excited to try it out.
I have another announcement, but will make that the subject of the next post.
Till next time...
