Started back in 2012, Not a Bully is a heartwarming project by photographer Douglas Sonders that aims to change the perception of rescue dogs that have been unfairly labeled as bullies.

I have seen quite a few photography projects recently for the benefit of dogs and I am quite happy about all of them.

"Try not to compromise. So many people don’t do what they really want in their hearts because they feel like they’re not good enough, or they’re not smart enough, or they’re not talented enough… anything. And that doesn’t matter. In order for you to live a remarkable life — in order for you to live a life that is fulfilling — you need to be able to go after what you want. And if you don’t, you’re not going to achieve it — ever."

Concentric Mastopexy, Right Breast, Dr. Steven Teitelbaum, Santa Monica, 2009 - Matthew Pillsbury
This particular image is from Matthew Pillsbury’s “Time Frame” series and I like it because of the way that the surgeon’s motion is captured via long exposure (this is what I’m working with for the class portfolio) and I really appreciate how well lit everything is.  I’m still learning when it comes to long exposures - none of mine, thus far, have come out quite like this.

Let me take your photo!

Over the course of the next week, I need up to 5 folks who will agree to let me take their photo in front of their computers. Text/tweet/message me if you’re down.

Another work in progress.

Taking photos for my project AND helped tourists (maybe) take their photo.

Lesson learned from last night: Midtown’s well-lit areas are well-lit and not great for long exposures.

Tonight we’re going down to Madison to photograph night time movement. Maybe some of the images will be usable for the class portfolio (which is separate from my personal portfolio).
