Week 15 - Candid Canine

Here goes a new set of pet photography for my weekly project.  So what's special about it?  Me and Raynan spent the day with my Image N' Techniks friends who were up for the heat on the Strays of Abu Dhabi (SAD) Dog Day.  Although it was a hot day for all, we all had fun photographing pet lovers and canine.

We had planned for a "studio" fun shoot but later on cancelled the set up.  We did not anticipate the wind that day.  We tried to set up our improvise studio however decided to just keep on shooting candidly with the participants and canine.  We have lots of lessons learned during the event.  Much to our expectations, all in all we did had a good time.

Watch out for more of Image N' Techniks candid canine shots on their blog (  Here's two of my shots from the show.
