This was a nice story that turned out to be a little tough to shoot. Molly is a ten-year-old springer spaniel who is a working dog at the submarine base in Groton. I wanted to get an up-close view of Molly’s training session, but my proximity would distract her and interfere with the test. The handler requested I stay behind him, but of course the best shots for me would have been directly head on. I also was thinking a little too much like a still photographer here, moving and zooming when I should have been holding steady. But hey, you can’t go wrong with a sailor in uniform carrying a dog in a backpack.Vodpod videos no longer available.
