Anne Geier, a photographer from Austria, has a beautiful talent of capturing soulful descriptions of hounds. Some of her better work is created in autumn, thanks to the golden hues and a overcast condition lending a perfect mystical environment, which represents the likenes stand out even more.
Be sure to speak between the startling photos for more of Anne’s interview!
Photographing animals can be quite difficult, but for Anne there’s nothing better. Of route, it has its objections: “I thing the most challenging concept in dog photography is to captivate the real reference and soul of the dog to create a living photo. Hence it is really important to get involved with the dog to create the perfect pic of him , ” shared Anne with Bored Panda.
“Each bird-dog has his own feelings and showings. Some of them are laughable, others are very concentrated.”
“One of my absolutely favorite photos is the photo of my dog Cindy( photo above ). I like it so much better because I think it’s one of “the worlds largest” mournful portraits I have ever taken. It demonstrates Cindy’s character in every channel- her good nature, her calmness, her grace, her faithfulness and her balance.”
Inspiration were critical for every photographer, so we expected Anne what inspires her everyday: “Most time I get the inspiration of the dog itself during the photo shooting. Every bird-dog has a different personality.”
“Sometimes I likewise get inspired by different landscapes. Often while I am going for a path with my own pup Finn I read a situate that I like and at the same time I create a terminated portrait in my memory. At that time I know where I miss the dog to sit, what weather I would prefer to shoot in to get the humor I miss and so on. Subsequentlies I try to see the photo I imagined.”
“I anticipate the main reason why my photos are that colorful is that I am always careful about the light-colored surroundings. During sunny days I exclusively take photos in the early morning hours or at the evening. Merely at this time the light-footed is gentle enough to create such intense colourings. I affection taking picture on cloudy dates without any sunlight and I love to use back-light.”
“I have a full-frame camera Nikon d750, a 85mm 1.8, 35mm 1.8, 50mm 1.8, 16-35mm 4.0 and my favorite lens the Nikkor 70- 200 2.8, it’s a great all rounder- it’s quick-witted, sharp-witted and versatile. But when I take situations with my own bird-dogs, I often favor a fixed focal period, specially the 35mm 1.8. For editing I use Photoshop CC.”
Anne was glad to give some advice for hound photography rookies so you could also get that perfect hit: “Firstly, you need to shoot at eye stage: shooting at eye-level helps the dogs stance show most natural and establishes a different deem to what we generally see…”
“…You too need to catch their notice: pups are readily confused, but those who like to play make good themes for action epitomes. For static shoots use toys, consider or entertaining interferences to keep their attention…”
“…Be sure to captivate the lamps in the eyes: ensuring you get light-headed reflected in the dog’s seeings facilitates indicate their face. You should also use a large opening: to constitute the background blurry and keep the focus on the dog…”
“…And most importantly, have fun! ”
We’d like to thank Anne for committing Bored Panda an interview and we wish her the best use of fluke!
