Photographer: Nick Heminger, Everett

Photo taken: Seattle Center, May 26

Photographer's description: “Musician at this year’s Folklife Festival at Seattle Center. I liked that he was carrying what he valued on his back, his guitar and a trusting canine friend. Photo taken with a Canon EOS Rebel T3.”

Expert says: “I love the focus on the dog’s eyes. Once I got sucked into the photo by those eyes I then went to the musician’s eyes and then back to the dog’s eyes in this circular motion. By making this photo black and white, I concentrate on the dog and I don’t get distracted by what’s around the frame; it gives it a classic feel. Nice portrait.”

-- Katie G. Cotterill, Seattle Times photo staff
