cocker spaniel

By lee beel      
This is a working Cocker Spaniel photographed over the weekend for a client.

We were on a Grouse Moor for some of the photos, which is where this one was taken.

It was late in the afternoon and the light was lovely and diffuse.

I used a wide aperture of f3.5 which produced a nice blurred foreground and background.

Shutter speed was 1/160th @ ISO400.

I sat in the heather in order to be at eye-level with the dog rather than looking down at it.

Superb portrait. I have a 9 month working Cocker but can not get him to stay still long enough to get a decent shot.
