Isla Mujeres and it’s dogs.

Happy Tuesday sorta…! Been back in Canada for  a week now, kinda missing the warmth and the beach.

Some of ya may be aware I just got back from Mexico, spent some time on the island of Isla Mujeres  a small Mexican  island of the coast of Cancun, the island itself is very small only 7km long and at its widest it is 650 metres wide.  The food, the drink the people are amazing, touristy sorta but just a beautiful simple place.

I love the wander, take my camera and well go.   Techy stuff ahead….I did most of these shots with a Nikon D800 with a 50mm f1.8.  One image is with a Samung Note 4, you can probably tell which. All processed with Adobe Lightroom , Photoshop and a tweak in with Nik Collection, truthfully very little was done sharpen, blacks and and a touch of toning.

A few things with life are different in Mexico to say the least, but I love to shoot the dogs, they just generally roam.  Some of the dogs are in pretty rough shape.

I get a lot of people asking how I get that ‘look’, or lighting/processing questions.   So for some fun over the winter I thought  I’d share the bit of photo lighting knowledge I have with those that are up for it. Workshop dates coming soon.  The first workshop will be more where you’ll get to shoot in studio, and do shoot stuff you normally wouldn’t be able to, and I’ll be there to help you and make you a better photographer. Hopefully.
