[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Today was "The Weird Street Faire" in San Francisco. I went to do some Street Photography in preparation for Jordan and Kaitlin's wedding in Las Vegas on Friday. This issue is always light and in a street setting it is important to turn your subject or get around your subject so the light is optimal. Adjustments have to be made with the Shadow Sliders and Highlight Sliders to bring out the detail in the shadows.

A fast small camera like a Canon or Nikon is great for this type of work. The focus is fast and accurate and in burst mode you can capture great emotions.

I used wide Apertures in these shots to separate the subjects from the busy background and to give a Carnival Appearance to the background.

Practically a three dimensional shot Roger. I presume the fast F2.8 lens set wide open coupled with the high shutter speed allowed for this great DOF & kept your main subject, the dog tack sharp & not OE,while its owner is softer & the background really blurred, a strong composition & a great result.



Hi Roger, a really good result with the amount of light and the lighter colour of the bulldog. He looks like he is completely ignoring you, daddy is watching you,but he doesnt think you are worth his time...Fiona

Hi Roger,
I like the way you I isolated the pet from its owner, I love the soft bokeh and the light on the dog's face.
And the dog himself is of course beautiful, with a noble, Churchill countenance :)

Hi Roger, I am a Dog Lover, so any picture with Dog will catch my attention. Your focus point is at the Bull dog....great separation with the shallow depth of field to separate the dog and his owner. I like the expression of the dog and he looks like he is the boss of the owner....as I am one of those kind of owner. Great 3D effect with different level of depth of field. Thank for sharing

The subject in this shot is clearly the bulldog. Excellent focus and nice brokeh. Nicely saturated colour and tack sharpness. Nice job
