Having been under Shelter in Place orders for two weeks now, and still working full time at my regular day job, I haven't had the opportunity to photograph any new subjects (though I am hoping to start on some personal projects at home soon). This week's theme is Wide Open Spaces, so I decided to use this opportunity to highlight the last session I completed prior to the order.
This fun session was with Kiera and her human, Steve. Kiera is a flat-coated retriever, a breed I hadn't yet had the opportunity to photograph, and one I don't see very often in my area. She was incredibly full of energy when we met at Hagan Park in Rancho Cordova. I had already met her during our Design Consultation, and Kiera was just as excited to see me as she had been the first day we met. I quickly came to find that she is one of the friendliest dog's I've worked with, a true love to both people and dogs, friends and strangers alike.
While we spent some time shooting in the grassy areas, I wanted to make use of the golden hour on the hill next to the dog park. Once you get to the top of this little hill, you can see the whole field behind the park opens up into a wonderful wide open space. With the sunlight streaming in through the trees, I was able to capture some of Steve's favorite images of Kiera at this spot.
Follow the rest of the Project 52 group blog circle to check out their wide open spaces. Next up is Elaine Tweedy of I Got the Shot Photography, finding wide open spaces for pets and their people in Northeastern PA and surrounding areas.
