Default Portrait...of sorts

Newbie posting first pic...hope for the best!

She isn't at all stupid, so "Stupid pet tricks" didn't fit...she thinks she's "People"...it's a "Closeup"...so guess it must be "Other photos."

Asta is our newly adopted Aussie Shepherd mix, and this shot is on my first digicam, a Minolta A1 I bought just before Thanksgiving. I've done photography for around 50 years, both as an imaging scientist and as an amateur, and have used digicams at work, but this is my first personal digicam. I have a particular preference for portraiture..and I guess that extends to pets.

I don't show often, but once in a while I find a shot I think might be worth showing, so thought I'd break the ice here with Asta.

A wonderful shot, and it's a look familiar to any of us who have owned a dog. The dog I grew up with used the look when my mother yelled at her. It worked. My mother would always apologize.

The photo is just a tad soft. A little tweak of contrast is all it needs.
