This is the first installment of a series I am calling ‘Behind the Shot’ that will illustrate and discuss images from my portfolio and outtakes. My hopes with this series are to bring a bit more insight into my shooting style and inform you as to my creative processes. To lighten the mood on a Friday I wanted to share with you Josephine‘s newest batch of pigs. As cute as these guys are, they didn’t make it into the latest photographic essay I have up on the website but I hope to put a smile on your face for the weekend ahead. Though these pigs are adorable, watch out for their mother…While in the pen photographing her babies the mother pig mistook one of my toes for a snack and tried to eat it! Luckily I got away just in time, and elected to use a longer lens to avoid Ms. piggy.
