Dog Show Assignment May 2016

A small group of around five photographers met up just before lunch back on the 1st May at Verity’s farm in Horsley. The show proved to be an ideal opportunity for members to practise a number of photographic techniques and produce a range of work including documentary, candid and action shots of dogs racing…   The day kicked off in the show rings before lunch. Lunchtime was a good opportunity for some candid’s and portraiture, after lunch the racing events took place.   Thanks to everyone who attended and produced images for the web and prints for the assignment night on the 2nd November.
