One of the first events that I shot was the 2013 Westminster Dog Show in New York City. Due to my novice skills, I was using way to fast of a shutter speed, and a high ISO. As a result, many of the photos I took have a harsher quality that makes me a little sheepish.
This photo is an exception as I feel the higher contrast and throw of light across their faces captures an intense connection familiar to all dog lovers.
While many issues with dog shows abound, it is hard to deny the love that the owners have for their dogs.
