My Forgotten Lens

We had a lovely lazy Easter weekend here in the Cameron household. So I pulled out a little lens that I hadn’t used in a while – the Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 fixed lens. Since the aperture is so large (f/1.8) it makes the forground and background very blurry – which can create some great effects! However, it can also be tricky. You have to pick exactly what you want the lens to focus on. In the picture below I chose to focus on Willie’s nose:

And in this one I chose to focus on Willie’s eye. Even 3 or 4 inches makes a difference.

It was great to just play around with my lens and my pup – he was such a good boy we went straight to the park for some fun! I love my life as a pet photographer.

Snow… in Dallas!

Crazy – Fun – Cold! If you’ve watched the news lately you know that Dallas had record snow fall this week. I’ve never seen anything like it! We did it all: built two snowmen, went sledding, made s’mores over the fire… and went without power for 32 hours… brrrrrrrrr! I took Mr. Blue Mutt out to see what he thought of this strange white stuff falling from the sky – well he loved it! It was hard to get him to come inside – especially once he realized he could bury his soccer ball in the snow. Here are two quick photos I have managed to edit since the power has come back on. There are many more to come! If this only happens once every 50 years you can bet I filled up my camera… but I did put it down for a snowball fight!

More Snow Photos!

I still can’t believe how much snow we got here in Dallas… and only a couple days later it’s already all melted. I took so many photos! I was super excited when my neighbors, who also had no power, invited me to go sledding with them at Flag Pole Hill. Their two girls Mallory and Macy are just too sweet!

And did I mention that Willie, Mr. Blue Mutt, loved every minute of it! Here he is standing in our backyard – the snow came up to his tummy :)

Totally Rad Birthday

Today is a big day for me – I’m turning the big 3 – 0! This past weekend we threw a huge party, 1980’s Prom Night style, to celebrate the occasion. One of the big hits from the party was our “Freeze Frame” room where everyone got to recreate the fabulous prom photos that likely now reside in their attics.  Since it was Mr. Blue Mutt’s first prom, he made sure to capture the moment as well!  Here’s Mr. Blue Mutt saying Happy Birthday!!

Blue Mutt’s Afternoon Off!!

Last week we had some beautiful weather here in Dallas. Blue skies and a nice fall breeze! Willie and I decided it was just to nice to stay indoors. So we shut down early and took the afternoon off :) We headed out to White Rock Lake to play a little fetch and watch the ducks. Willie had an absolute blast…check out that tongue.

Willie loves to catch the ball high in the air. Usually the only time he misses is when I give him a bad toss, just like the on the right …oops! To learn more about Mr. Blue Mutt check out his own page – blue mutt

Once Willie was done playing we sat and relaxed by the lake for a while, I just love his silhouette – I even used it as the Blue Mutt Photography logo! All I can say is that my “job” as a Dallas pet photographer ROCKS!
