This is one of the first shots I took with a new lens that I purchased, Canon EF 50mm 1.8 II.

The shot was totally unplanned and I barely had time to focus correctly. I’m a little disappointed that the dog’s face and part of my grandson’s face are slightly out of focus. I think my DOF was a little too shallow.

Anyway, I really like this shot. To me it’s a classic example of being at the right place at the right time.

I realise that the idea of the tongues connecting is very unhealthy but I think the shot tells a story.

I haven’t cropped the shot mainly because I’m not really sure that it needs to be. Any suggestions or comments?

 

Canon EOS 60D f2.2 1/2000 50mm ISO 100

Hmmmmm… I really wouldn’t let your grandson go around kissing dogs.
Here’s what WebMD has to say about the dangers.

Mandrake, thanks for your concern but I’m well aware of the health implications of kissing a dog and there is no way I would have intentionally allowed this to happen.

Anyone who has been around kids and dogs knows only too well that dogs will lick kid’s faces.

In fact it wasn’t until I viewed the photo later that I realised my grandson’s tongue was even out. The child is only seventeen months old and there is no way I could’ve posed the child and his dog for the shot.

I felt the photo showed an innocent emotional connection between the child and his pet. Also I thought that the dog being behind the bars and the child having open space behind him adds to the story.

Perhaps the very fact that the subject matter moved someone enough to research the health aspect demonstrates that the photo had some impact, even if it was a negative impact.

I like that!

So I noticed, people kissing their dogs is very common thing. Once I photographed a women, who practically was making out with her dogs in front of my camera, lol. Wink

In spite of hygiene concerns, it is a cute shoot.

Coming from a farm, being kissed by an animal is nothing to fear or worry about.  Sure they have germs and bacteria, but that is what our immune system is for.  I have been kissed by cats, dogs, cows, horses, rabbits, even a goat.  I am still here.  Just for the record, the animal licks were one way, not two way haha.

LOL Brian. You might be right. The kids, who’s parents are took germophobic usually get sick the most, because their immune system is not germs resistant.

Hi guys

 

I am new here and beginner in this photographic  “battlefield” . Trying to learn.

My question regarding the photo is : If the aperture was 1 or 2 times slower(lets say f/2.8 or f/4) and the shutter speed 1-2 times faster, the quality of the image regarding the dog and the child will be much sharper?  I know that in this case the DoF will change but i am only curious if this could help to get better image.

 

Thanks

Nikon D5200 18-105mm 1:3.5-5.6

Hi Bogdan! Welcome to the forum! 

Regarding your question: The rule of thumb is that the sweet spot of the lens is two stops down from wide open. So if the largest aperture of the lens in F2.8, it would be the most sharp at f5.6. So it is just a rule of thumb and it might be different on different lenses and also depending on focal length (on zoom lenses). Also some lenses are just much sharper then other and this is nothing you can do about it with you setting, but finding a sweet spot sure can help a bit. 

Also keep in mind that shutter speed also influence sharpness. If it is too slow it can create camera shake or motion blur.

Beautiful photo but kissing a dog is sometimes hazardous.
