Cottage Cheese

"Cottage Cheese!"

Sorry guys, these are just empty props.

Zachary: "What does it take to get fed around here?"


Dog Blog Post #1834


The boys get Fat Free Cottage Cheese every morning on their Kibble.

It makes yard cleanup easier... if you know what I mean.

Which is probably way more information than you really needed or wanted to know.

They each had spiffy flag bandanas on, not that you could tell in most of the shots.

I didn't want to set up the "studio" (being 4th of July and all) which left me shooting from a high angle (so I didn't have to deal with the kitchen cabinets) which effectively hid their bandanas from view.

Next!

Zachary: "You are going to suffocate."

Yes, Henry really did shove his muzzle deep inside the Container.  :)

Here's Henry, doing his best George C. Scott from the movie "Patton" imitation.

Our Daily Challenge - July 2, 2015 - "On Your Bucket List"

I don't actually have a photography bucket list - perhaps I should - but I do like to recreate images from famous sources when I have the time and the challenges "fit".

Today was the perfect opportunity to try recreating a famous still from the 1970 Oscar winning movie "Patton".

I've recreated old-master art before, but I can't remember ever trying a movie scene and that seems like something that should be on my list, if I had one.

Behind the Scenes


Henry was shot against a green screen...

The flag...

Old Glory

... is your standard 4'x6' house flag, and was shot hanging from the cabinets like any other backdrop would be.

It was cropped tight, the creases cloned away, the saturation was upped and the blue field darkened a bit as the fabric was a tad too transparent.

Photoshop Elements was used to merge the two together.

I did take pictures of Zachary, but only had time to mask one shot as fur is rather time consuming to mask.
