Creepy Canine?
Count Henry: "What's my line again?"

… but I'm working with Golden Retrievers - hardly the terrors of the animal kingdom.

of the figurative-narrative line-space matrix contextualize
the eloquence of this piece."*

The boys, contemplating a rather Gaudy picture of Zachary.

Daily Dog Challenge 1082. "Gaudy"

Our Daily Challenge - Oct 18, 2014 - "Picture In a Picture"

Prop of the Week?


The "picture" was cropped from an unused image from the recent Bird House shoot.

I had a bit of fun with it, pushing sliders (mostly Curves), printed it in four pieces, then cut-n-taped those onto poster board.

I probably should call it the Prop of the Week, as it took a good chunk of my afternoon to make, but I do have another new prop in wings just waiting for the right challenge to pull it out.

Candid Canine

This might come to a surprise to some, but…


Bitey-Face
"Fearsome Face!"


Bitey-Face
Henry: "Ahhhhhhhhh"


Bitey-Face
Zachary: "Ahhhhhhhhh"

Cookie Time!

(a scramble of paws)

(sounds of a big handful of little Cookies hitting the floor)

(sounds of two dogs Hoovering up said Cookies in 2.3 seconds)



Hoovering
Zachary: "Find any more?"
Henry: "Nope, I think we got 'em all."

… sometimes the boys really are "just dogs".

Daily Dog Challenge 1079. "Front"

Front paws, front teeth, one on front of the other…


Note to Self…


Bitey-Face


Bitey-Face

… replace flash batteries.

Oh well, it gave me a chance to play with the sliders again.

These two are the same shot, with the bottom just a B&W version of the finished one above it.

This is a actually a surprisingly subtle result given what I started with and all I did to it (ex: at one point their fur was streaked pastel yellow, pink, blue, and green and my white wall was pure black) to get it here.

Exposure, Contrast, Brightness, Temperature, Saturation, and of course Curves and Levels all played their roles - and not in a "minor cleanup" sort of way.
