Puppy Shoot Aussie’s – Border Collies

Puppy Shoot

During a walk with Yaz, a few weeks ago, I met the owner of two beautiful dogs.
One full breed Australian shepherd dog and a mix of an Australian ShepherdBorder Collie.
More important for me was that I found out that the mixed breed was pregnant!
Dad is a full breed Border Collie…  O dear, what a beautiful mix will that be.
After that walk, I’d meet the owner a few times more and we agreed on a Puppy Shoot.

And what an amazing opportunity I had this week. One shoot when they are three weeks old and after this one, one shoot will follow when these little monsters will be 6-7 weeks.

Taking it easy

Indeed, this was my very first time I would do a shoot with little puppies.
I did visit them 2 times prior to the shoot just to get acquainted with the puppies, the mother dog, and the location. This first-time, the shoot is just at home.

O Dear

Did you ever see a bunch of 10, blue-eyed puppies crawling around?
As a matter of fact, some of the 3 weeks old youngsters were even challenging each other, showing their teeth which aren’t even there yet.

It was difficult but so much fun to do. They were moving around all the time. It was almost if they knew some idiot was taking pictures of them. But after an hour or so I had them all captured and to tell the truth, I’m looking forward to the next shoot. I mean when they are +6 weeks old.
In short, that will be a challenge for sure.

Meeting in the forest after a long time

The meeting

After a long time, it was today I’d planned a meeting with some friends in a small forest close by. Not sure they were at home though…

Entering the forest, with my dog Yaz, was a sort of homecoming.
For Yaz too as she was on top speed in a record time, down the track in front of us. Well, in this case, it assured my friends knew I was there.

Wow! It’s an amazing day with a lot of sunshine with beautiful flowers and little creatures. In the background noisy birds… My friends.

In the meantime, while I was shooting pictures, Yaz was transforming into a wet mud monster.
As usual, she didn’t realize she had to get back home again… In my car.
Well, we’re just on our way so, that being the case, there was time to dry.

And there they were.
The Long-tailed tit, Eurasian blackcap, and the Short-toed  Treecreeper.

It was a good meeting.
I heard and saw many other birds who were busy.
Either way, I have not been able to find them, so, I have to go back soon.

The sunlight was quite hard and made it difficult today. Nevertheless, I was able to shoot some nice photos anyway.

In Memoriam

“In Memoriam”

3 weken geleden wandelde ik op straat, mij realiserende dat ik  kan gaan waar ik wil, hier in gewoon in Nederland en ik bezocht de rustplaats van een oude vriend.
Ook stond ik stil bij gedenkstenen van een paar, voor mij, onbekenden. Deze kwam ik  tegen op straat als Stolpersteine. (Een project van de Duitse kunstenaar Gunter Demnig).

Deze bezoekjes raakten me heel diep.

Alles heeft een reden - Everything has a reason
Alles heeft een reden – Everything has a reason
Vandaag is het 4 mei, Nationale dodenherdenking.

De Tweede wereld oorlog en alles wat er aan ellende na kwam wordt herdacht.
Mensen op de vlucht, mensen die zijn omgebracht, mensen die hun leven hebben gegeven om vrede en veiligheid te bewerkstelligen en te behouden.

Vandaag zijn er nog steeds mensen op de vlucht en velen verliezen hierbij het leven ook vechten er nog altijd  mensen, soms ver van huis, voor vrede en veiligheid.

Hoe dubbel is het om te herdenken terwijl alle ellende door blijft gaan.

“Alles heeft een reden”

Dave, oude vriend, jij vocht ver van huis voor vrede en veiligheid.
Alles heeft een reden” zijn de woorden die je steeds tegen me zegt als ik je een bezoekje breng.

Na al die jaren blijft mijn vraag: Waarom en waarom jij?

Respect vriend.

Always

Still to figure out a lot.
The SNAP auto poster is still a pain. It works but I need to get the different account setup correctly.

If you like to check out SNAP as a plugin on your site, take a look over here.
I have a lot of fun with it.

Equipment used by ShiftyNL-photography

The Equipment

Having looked around on this site you might wonder what equipment I’m using.
Not that it’s important when you just like to see the photo’s on this site.
You just might not be interested in it.

Anyway, I like to tell a bit more about the hardware I use to get these results.
I also use Lightroom, Photoshop and some other nice plugin or standalone tools.

Therefore I added a page to the website to show you what I use.

Updated My Portfolio on ShiftyNL-Photography

Today I updated My Portfolio with older and newer work”.

Galleries

Two new Galleries are added to the site

Bumble bee, My Portfolio

What else?

I implemented an auto-post option into the site, which makes it possible to re-post any news and/or update to 5 other social media accounts.
Some live testing is in progress so you might see some not so useful messages the next couple of days which will be deleted afterward. 😉

What’s next?

Again I added a new social media channel. This time Google+.
Because I was doing an online Social Media Course, I learned that a Google+ account adds a lot more to any posting you do.
Facebook and Instagram do have their own policies which are not always the best for you.
Have look at my Google+ account.

The Galleries

After having made all the picture sizes equal I added some new Galleries.
It’s looking even better now.

What’s next?

Social media. Again I added a new social media channel. This time Flipboard.
Because of the setup of Flipboard, I liked the idea to set it up.

Take a look at my Flipboard account!

Yet, I’m still looking for an auto-post script to have it all automated.
There are a few but these are limited to only 3 accounts.
Unfortunately, I have more than 3.

Which looks quite awesome.

I’m still looking for an auto-post script, most of all to get some posting automated.
Because of automating, I only need to align up posts and have the script do the rest for me.

And another social media is added. Have a look at my Tumblr account.

You can think, Why are you using so many social media accounts?
That’s a good question.
Because I like fiddling whit social media and web development, to some extent, I just love to be active in that way.

It’s fun!!

Small changes

Made some small changes today.

Small changes

Social media buttons

Because I’m posting on different social media channels I added Social media buttons to the site.

One of the other channels, to which I post, is my Instagram account.
I will add more social media accounts in the future because I like the idea to have the photos seen by a lot more people than only friends.

Other changes

I made a few other small changes on the About page as well.
You can see over here a bit more where I’m coming from.
