    Take a portrait of your dog! Remember traditionally a portrait is focused on the head/face - you can certainly have your entire dog in the picture, but show us those fuzzy faces!

    I JUST acquired my first DSLR camera a few days ago. I took hundreds of pictures of the family dogs at my parents' house... I think this one is my favourite. Her name's Mrs. Spoon, she's a BC-mix that I adopted from the Hawaiian Humane Society ~10 years ago. I really wish I had chosen a better background, but I adore this photo cuz her face looks so expressive here and I love how warm her eyes look.

    She's goofy, kind, tolerant, and sweet - yet fiercely defensive, sensitive to her surroundings, and fearless.

    REMINDER: Pictures, I do believe, have to be taken within the time frame of the week.

    I like the flikr idea!! Can we upload them all every week to facebook to their own album?? It would be pretty sweet to have an album of them all..
    those who would like to opt out could just put a note on their weekly pics..

    Although this is the general idea, it's really up to each individual. It's more of a challenge to take fresh pictures every week (and that is what I will be doing), but make of it what you want :)

    Victor is all about confidence and eye intensity. He is soft and supple and imo glorious. I thought this kind of caught all of that. At least I hope so.

    Pintage, that picture is fantastic! Do you have a lot of experience shooting with a dSLR, even though you just got your first one?

    I sort of wish I took one of not Milo's face last week. I guess this week I'll either just try for a similar shot with improved focus and whatnot...or get one of Benji.

    Smkie, that portrait of Victor is GORGEOUS! Love the shadows, the dark background and shooting him from below eye level in a 3/4 view. I hope you frame this!

    Since I normally take a lot of straight on portraits, I figured I'd do it a teensy bit differently.

    It was meant to have her looking at the camera, but I kind of like it. If you look towards the ball (where the majority of the focus is), you can see its reflection on the tile.

    A bit of humor, but also a handsome portrait of Saxon sitting in the cat's bed:
