I listened to this podcast on macro photographyA photography podcast (no video). Focused on Chicago. with Mike Moats and a few of these pictures are based on trying out some things that were mentioned- mainly trying much higher f-stops. I usually shoot close to wide open. The shift from shooting around 2.8 and lower to around 10 to 15 is considerable. Tripple portrait. I like the faces on both the dogs.
I find these pet pictures interesting. They seem oddly private and at the same time sad. Your pets are on display trapped in your house. You don’t often see people practicing for boxing on the street around here. This one looks better larger. Fun light, lots of repeated shapes. Gyro guy looks oddly tender as he makes the food. He chatted up everyone and in at least two languages. More fun with light in the morning.
