Campus Puppy

This puppy (that isn’t even a puppy because it’s just a super-old small dog) has been seen almost every single day strolling the SJSU campus. This puppy, whose name I never got the chance to get, may be seen following its owner (whose name I also was not able to get) using it’s cute little steps. I had the chance to take this in the San Antonio plaza as the puppy strolled a little ways from its owner. It paused and I took the chance to get in front of it and snap a couple of shots. This shot is special because I seemed to catch it smile a little bit. My use of the rule of thirds is very evident by placing the pup at the intersection near the bottom right section. The picture originally did not use any true black but my photography teacher saw the photo as a little “muddy” so the true blacks came back by flattening the tone curve and this was the result of that. The face comes out clearer and the whiteness really brings out the pup’s face as it smiles for the camera.

This image was taken inside the City Hall building on the 5th floor where residents receive their S.U.N. permits. I believe this picture created a very lonely mood because of the empty chairs but also lively at the same time because of the flower and the blue background. This photo uses the rule of thirds well and many leading lines leading to multiple points of focus.
