Dog Photo Challenge ~ Sunset

Sunset is one of our favourite times to head out on a walk with the dogs!

And there is often no better time of the day for photographing your dog than at Sunset!

Great lighting, long shadows and, if you’re lucky, an amazingly colourful sky as the backdrop!

Why not take a lovely sunset walk with your dog, and take some photos for this challenge?

This Week’s Theme: SUNSET

The qualities of sunset light also gives rise to creative possibilities.  Some things to try with your sunset photos:

  • Moody or Colourful Clouds
  • Gorgeous warm backlit lighting
  • Lens Flare
  • The light through long dog hair or providing a golden rim or outline
  • Silhouettes
  • Fun with long shadows

You’re welcome to apply the theme creatively. Don’t forget to include a comment if it might not so obvious as to how your photo fits the theme.

We can’t wait to check out all your ‘Sunset’ doggie photos.
