We had quite a lot of rain over the last couple of weeks in Sydney. I prayed for no-rain-sunshine for this long weekend (yes, we still celebrate the Queen's birthday, Queen Elizabeth II in case you were wondering). I got my wish. Not only was it sunny but the sun was super cooperative on Sunday; it was blasting like anything!

The lodge where the dogs are housed has a fantastic big fenced-up lawn for the dogs to run and play in. Shade is limited as the eucalyptus trees in the yard are still fairly young. I love natural light. But a full blasting sun with cloudless sky is not ideal.  So I made do with as much technique as possible with what I could  carry in my hands to minimise distracting the dogs with more photographic  equipment like a flash gun, big reflector / diffuser. From the dogs' reaction, I suspect some of them hadn't even seen a camera before — well, a big, black chunky one that is.


  1. Look at Ned's ears!
    I hope they all have great fun together before being adopted into loving homes.

  2. Those ears of Ned's have their own personality :)
    I think the dogs did enjoy the photo shoot session. Ned figured out pretty quickly what all the fuss was about!


Hey, thanks for visiting twoguineapigs and leaving us a comment! We hope to see you again sometimes. xx
