There was a Police Dog demonstration at the Guide Dogs for the Blind event-some action shots to follow.
I got chatting to this young Policeman, and he was clearly enthusiastic about his job, but what got me was the total respect that he had for his dog, and his dog had for him.
I'm submitting the shot to the "Planting the seeds" AM3 section, as this is an example of something that I really need to think about, and is an example of "Good, but no cigar...needs to work on technique" which is what "Planting seeds" is all about.
I always forget how police uniforms really fool the metering system (It's trying to make the black a dark grey, so everything else is overexposed), I had to really work hard to try and get some face detail in Photoshop,
I tried to work on this today, picking the right exposure point whilst taking some action pictures, it was really difficult.
I think that the way that "Planting the seeds" works is that once I've got better, I post up a "After" shot, that shows I've progressed....don't hold your breath, this is gonna be a long haul!
