The painting we are imitating has no smiling.

|Henry: "He he he."|
|Zachary: "Not smiling."|
Very good, now lower your head a little and look right at the camera…
Dog Blog Post #1491
Let it be officially noted that putting a turban on a dog is hard.
Today's turban is two yards of red fabric, split lengthwise (long ago, for a different shoot) folded lengthwise to hide the interior, then wrapped around the red fedora.
Like all shots today, this one has been flipped horizontally.
My electrical outlet is on the right, hence all my lighting is typically from the right.
However, the painting I was trying to match was lit from the left, hence the post-processing flip.
This also meant I had to download the original, flip IT horizontally, to try to get the "look" (and turban) right as I was shooting backwards.
Alas, it is STILL really hot, and Henry just couldn't keep his mouth shut.
Then then right after I shot the one of Zachary (above) and I was trying to get him to lower his muzzle a bit, the hat and turban fell on the floor in an ugly heap, thus ending the shoot!

I think turbans are now on my Banned Items List!
