Photo 7: Dog
Shutter Speed: 1/1600
It's not easy shooting photos of dogs. Especially one that loves to run, enjoys licking the lens and doesn't reflect light because of his black fur. The solution? Take hundreds until you get the right one! And rather than getting every detail of the animal's physique in the viewfinder, the silhouette element matches nicely. There's something about prairie dogs on acres of empty snow-laden farmland that just photograph so well.
Some might say this image is staged, and to those naysayers I announce: Nuts! I have little control over what direction my dog's head turns in the viewfinder, against a backdrop that emits a feeling doom as brooding dark sky pillows emerge from the horizon. And the leash, well that was just luck :).
You can also find this photo with many others on my Instagram profile. I confidently extol my ever-growing following, which has breached an impressive 277 followers.

Just being clear, The words make the money, the photos are just an ego boost.
