Hair Of the Dog New Years Day 2019

When I first committed to photographing a doggie event on New Years Day I assume it would be mid 60’s Tucson winter.

From my backyard

NOT! Woke up to snow followed by 9am rain and I planned to be there at 9:30am. I dressed as best as a Tucsonan could for the cold, 2 pairs socks, gloves, rain pants, light jacket and sweatshirt. Fortunately the rain had stopped soon after 9am and the sun came out with no wind. Mid 40’s and moving around – it wasn’t so bad.

The event was organized by RunTucson and benefitted the Humane Society of Southern Arizona.

When I lived in San Jose I photographed a few doggie events per year and this was my first one in Tucson.

I like to start with simple close shots of individual dogs and sometimes their humans like to be in the photo.

Almost time for the 1 mile Doggie Dash to begin. I head off to a spot I had preselected and get ready for the dash to begin.

Technically this was a very challenging event to photograph. The camera is not able to see darks and lights like our eyes, so it was constant camera setting changes, sun in, sun out, sun partially out and white dogs and black dogs. What also makes it challenging is there can be so many participants that it becomes difficult to focus on one subject especially when some are running.

I try to photograph everyone/every dog but its just not possible unless everyone is spread out more, but often they come in “packs”.

Here’s an example of a big pack coming my way. Too many dogs at once, this way and that way, which one to focus one.

Once the last have come by, I quickly move to the finish hoping to photograph those I missed in the beginning.

My favorite of the day. Adorable little girls, holding hands and their sweet pup.

After the dash is over we spend some time milling about post race.
