Pudge breaks in new holiday background

When my sister-in-law Penny opened The Hungry Hound in downtown Somerville 13 years ago, we decided to put in a dog portrait studio. I’ve photographed hundreds of dogs since then but her store grew and she needed the studio space for other things.

I recently launched LorenDogs.com for my dog photography business and I’ve set up a couple of studios in my office. Christmas cards are popular so one set has a festival holiday background featuring one of my office fireplaces. I got my seven-month-old puppy, Pudge, to try out the holiday set and she looks pretty good. If you want me to photograph your pup, check out LorenDogs.com

Shoot fun macro photos when stuck indoors

I like macro photography, getting up close and taking a different look at things. Today was my second macro photography workshop this month and it was a lot of fun, as usual.

I start off with a presentation and then set up five studio situations that anyone can do it at home. It is a great way to keep the skills sharp and have fun when you don’t feel like going out and fighting the weather.

I like putting a lemon in a glass and adding seltzer or mixing oil and water and seeing how it looks up close.

One of my favorite shots is putting glycerin on plexiglass and putting objects underneath and shooting the refraction. Peanut M&Ms are my favorite candy to eat and photograph, the colors are very cool.
