Shooting for a purpose

Aussie jumping for ball at dog park

For the past few weeks, I've been missing the Acton dog park but I have been out shooting. My friends from the dog park let me photography their 3 aussies running around for the purpose of building my photo portfolio. Each photo shoot, I've been creating new work and testing out shooting styles. Some have been to test gear and others to try new points of view.
I don't go out so much with an agenda but to be able to create some fun photos and build up my portfolio.
Yesterday, I was at the Acton park but went to the back half of the field where most people don't visit. They didn't even know it existed but I know it's the nicest place to shoot. It's well maintained and the morning light is really nice. Today we were running and jumping in an open area while using a small strobe kit. Some of the photos came out really well. I'm hoping to get more soon.
I've got some plans for some studio work too but that will take some more work. Toby will have to be my test for that because it just takes a lot of work to set it up.
