Baylee: My First Canon Subject

This is my dog Baylee. She is my first subject with my new camera and lenses 🙂

As soon as my new camera arrived I wanted to practice with it. I just made the switch from Nikon to Canon so I need to get used to how Canon operates. So far, I’m pretty happy with the results. That, and I got some pretty sweet lenses with it 🙂

Baylee was the first thing that intrigued me to take photos of. She is a Black Lab, we’ve had her for almost 10 years now, and I love her to death. What can I say? I’m attached. When I lived at home I would sneak her inside (because she is mostly an outside dog) and let her sleep with me. She is a very spoiled outside dog though. She has her house to sleep in, a bed on the deck, and another one in the garage so she has plenty of comfortable places to sleep on. I spent about an hour with her (and also practicing with my new glass) and here are some shots I got…

Baylee can’t live without:

  1. a) her tennis ball
  2. b) treats

Her bed on the deck. She likes to only rest half of her body on the bed.

Baylee fact: She was hit by a car when she was 5 months old. Her hip has been bothering her as she ages but she still loves to play ball. She’s kind of obsessed with it.

Sometimes she uses her nose to open the screen door and sneak inside.

Wet nose.

The irresistible “puppy dog” eyes. I still catch myself calling her “puppy-dog” like I used to. Baylee: My First Canon Subject

Delaney is always happy around dogs and Baylee is very gentle with her.

She also is obsessed with licking her paws. Almost to the point where we have to force her to stop.
