"Cali," a five-month-old English Mastiff, was photographed by Vicki Morgan.

"This is Running Bear's Savage Cali," writes photographer Vicki Morgan from Sweetwater, Tennessee. She says that Cali, a 5-month-old English Mastiff, is her "best photography victim".

Vicki tells us she used $1.00-a-yard material tacked to the wall for a backdrop and employed the workshop lights from her husband's garage for this image. "We were working on some great shots in a sitting position," says Vicki, "when she [Cali] decided that the hot dogs were not moving fast enough, and started pouting. This turned out to be the best shot of the day."

Vicki says that Cali is just over 100 pounds now (at only eight months old), and expects hot dogs every time she sees the camera, so she is getting her share of them!


Ashley Murrell is an amateur photographer who recently came across our site and decided to send in a couple of photos, with a promise of more to come. Ashley shoots with a Pentax MZ-7 fitted with a 28mm - 90mm zoom lens, and uses ISO 400 Fuji film. These pictures, which Ashley entitled "Field View" and "Turning a New Leaf," were photographed near Belleville, Ontario in Canada.

Ashley wrote: "Keep up the great work (love the red hot chili cat ...... Ideas ideas....) And enjoy yourselves." Good advice. Thanks, Ashley.

Ashley Murrell has a unique way of looking at things, as these images demonstrate.

Damien D. Fields submitted this image, which he entitled "The curious goose." It provides a good example of selective focus, where the depth of field does not extend much beyond the center of interest, but the geese in the background are still sharply-enough in focus that they are easily-identified for what they are. Well done, Damien.


Who could ask for a more attractive model than this lovely young girl?

In keeping with our policy of not divulging information that might identify where children live or what their true names are when their images are submitted to PhotographyTips.com, we can only tell you that the photographer is a proud dad named Rodney, and his photograph is a wonderful portrait of his daughter.

Rodney originally asked us for a critique of this image, but we could find nothing wrong with it, although we did reply (see below). He took this picture with a Minolta HTSiPlus, an excellent camera suitable for beginners to advanced photographers.

Here is our "critique" of his picture: "Gorgeous smile. Bright expression. Nice setting. Good pose and posture. Good camera angle. Shot from the right height. Good depth of field. Colorful. Well-composed and properly-framed. Excellent spacing. Nice outfit and perfect grooming. Well set up overall. The highlights are not overdone. Proper exposure. Good lighting and appropriate three-dimensionality. Having her hold the fallen leaf is a nice touch and adds a little interest and involvement in the scene. Summary: It's a fine picture of a happy-looking child that is a definite keeper. Congratulations, Rodney."

This is a smile that could melt your heart. Dad took the picture, and did a great job of it, too.

Mom, Laura Michele, calls this photo of her son
Mom, Laura Michele, calls this photo of her son "tough guy."

"This photo relates to your Children section," wrote mom, Laura Michele, who submitted this captivating picture.

"I took this photo of my son about 4:00 pm at a local park in our beautiful State of Florida," she said. "I used Kodak black and white 35mm 400 film in my YASHICA FX-3 super camera. This tough guy can be hard to photograph (not wanting to smile) but when his sister asked him to look 'tough,' he was glad to do so."

(We do not provide surnames of parents of children whose images appear on our site.)


Dr. Michael photographed this alert-looking little one in a nice, tight composition, which he has titled "Impy." It exemplifies proper attention to lighting (which is diffused and soft - well-suited to a baby), composition (which is simple and uncluttered) and background (which is dark and unobtrusive).
