Beautiful Beasties is an international network of professional pet photographers, of which I am very privileged to be a part of. Within the network a group was formed for photographers who wanted to participate in a project, a 52 week project. Each week a theme is chosen and posted, then we all go out and take a photograph or series of photographs to fit the theme, then we all post onto our own websites and form a ring by linking all the websites. That means you can look at my images and then follow the links all over the world to see what other pet photographers are capturing.


The theme for week 8, which was chosen by Shelley Castle in the United States, is Black & White. Shelley writes as our brief this week “We have been having lots of odd weather days and I have been shooting inside more….This is when I tend to sit back study light and love to shoot in black and white. Winter light seems so magical when applied this way. Have fun and get creative!”

Well, while we here in the Southern Hemisphere are in the middle of summer, our weather has ben fairly unpredictable anyway! But I love black & white no matter what the season, so here are a couple of shots I have taken in my mini table top studio, processed in black & white…






(watch for my next post which will be more about all the mini-beasts featured above)

Now, don’t forget, this is an international blog ring, so starting with 100 Loyal Faces Photography, Perth, Australia (yay another Aussie!) keep following all the links until you get here to me and my mini-beasts.

I hope you all enjoy this weeks Black & White journey.
