The Swamp down the road

Filed under: Dogs, Photography — Tags: , — Miriam @ 2:00 pm

I just got a new 50mm f1.4 lens for the Pentax *ist because I’m shooting a low light wedding in September. I’m pretty excited but I’ve barely had the chance to use it.

I brought it along on my daily walk with Cooper the other day. I was testing out the camera by taking pictures of the swamp. Then Cooper spotted a frog. I caught this picture right after the frog jumped.

Our Local SwampI need to find some other opportunities to practice with the camera before the wedding. I may be shooting the wedding as a wedding present, but I want to do a good job (the pictures will be their memories of the event).

If anyone in the New England area (or in Quebec the weekend of August 22-23) wants to play model for me, let me know. I’ll take pictures of you for free.



  1. That’s a great shot! I’m not so great in the picture-taking department…I leave it up to my husband, Tim….he’s the detail-oriented, anal one 🙂
