Dog Blog Post #1613



Looks like the boys are Getting Ready for Turkey Day, a day I'm Thankful For family and good food.

Having really, really patient models isn't half bad either.

Turned the reflector black-side out today (anti-reflector?) on the left to limit light to just the flash on the right.

The flash was lowered to dog-head height.

The camera was sitting on the floor.

This put the boys in Partial lighting - an effect I really like.

Daily Dog Challenge 1120. "Partial"

Our Daily Challenge - Nov 25, 2014 - "One Shot Two Ways"

I know folks have trouble telling the boys apart, something I understand from the viewpoint of looking at other people's dogs but find inexplicable when staring at my own.

Today's shots, in addition to their obvious layout differences, reveal (to me, at least) their very different appearance despite the similar poses.

Top shot is Henry - as soft on the inside as he is on the outside. Head down and demure, ears flopping forward, his "loose jammies" skin and thick ruff shown to their advantages.

He looks every bit the "stuffed animal" sweet that he is.

Second shot is Zachary - smart as can be, always watching and processing what is going on, ready to spring into action if needed.

His skin is tighter, his fur is smoother, his appearance always more taut, if that makes sense.

If you need a dog to unload your drier or pick up your laundry and put in into the basket, he's your guy.

If you just want it hauled around the house, Henry will do. :)

Dog Blog Post #1609



We keep a pile of old blankets and a comforter in the bedroom for the boys to make a Nest as they choose.

Today I grabbed the pile and dropped it in the "studio", turned to set up the camera, and look back to see Henry pawing away at it then plopping down in the middle.
