Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken on a recent holiday to Lapland, Finland. We visited the Husky Park in Rovaniemi and got to meet all the dogs in the park and also experience the thrill of being on a sledge pulled by these amazing dogs!
Time
This photo was taken around 10am, in December in Lapland, the daylight hours are very short and was overcast most days with the weather usually consisting of snow.
Lighting
As previously mentioned light is very limited by daylight hours available and weather conditions, you can be lucky and have a clear day where the sun barely lifts above the horizon which gives a fantastic red sky for almost 4 hours of the day!
Equipment
The Camera used was a Canon 5D Mark III with a Canon 50mm 1.8 STM. No other equipment was used.
Inspiration
This dogs eyes really got a hold of my attention, they consist of 2 different colours and this is called Heterochromia Iridis. There is science behind why but the superstition is that these dogs can see both heaven and earth at the same time! The warm orange of one eye and the contrasting blue is really eye catching. This dog was also particularly keen on my now Fiancé (I proposed in Lapland the day after!) and I couldn't help but want to take a photo! The dog was even rubbing nose to nose with my Fiance which was a great moment that I also captured.
Editing
The photograph was processed in Lightroom Classic. I cropped this image as it was taken through a cage in this dogs kennel. Basic adjustments were carried out, I increased the exposure and increased the contrast, I also gave the blacks a small adjustment to help give a bold look around the eyes. Finally I used a brush adjustment and added some clarity to the eyes to bring out how amazing they are and really give them depth!
In my camera bag
I normally travel quite heavy, Canon 5D Mark III, Canon 50mm f1.8 STM for portraits of dogs, just like this shot! Canon 70-200 f2.8L, my favourite lens which I used predominantly for doing dogs in action. Canon 24-105mm f4L, mainly used during travel as it’s versatility is fantastic. Canon Speedlight 580EX II, which I use on occasion when required, I’m still learning to use flash correctly.
Feedback
My best advice for capturing dogs in this form, come down to eye level with the dog, comfort the dog and show you are friendly. My final trick is to speak to the dog and engage with it on a social level, many people may call it crazy, but.. Dogs listen and they can understand us and learn what we say!
