Chillin'

Henry, whatcha doing?

School's Out
Henry: "Relaxin'"

Oh... that's nice.

Wait...

What's that in your glass?


School's Out
Henry: (blink blink)

You would think he could at least pour me one.

Fog?

Horror
Zachary: "Ahhhhhhh!"


Foggy Night
Henry: "Hmmmm"

Foggy Night
Henry: "Hmmmm"


Dog Blog Post #1831


Wasn't I surprised to find fog in my studio (aka Kitchen).

Daily Dog Challenge 1338. "Unexpected"

The picture of Zachary is of him catching Cookies layered with a picture of "fog" I "painted" using Procreate on my iPad.

Henry's picture has the same fog image but a more standard pose.

The images went through a basic post-processing in Lightroom (cropping/exposure tweaking) then were shipped off to Photoshop Elements to be combined with the fog (Zachary was masked and put in front and Henry put behind a mask of the fog), then shipped back to Lightroom to be turned into B&W images.

Night Out

Too hot for words...

Night Out
Dapper Zachary

Dog Blog Post #1830



The boys have their best tuxes on - I wonder where they are going?

And why didn't they invite me to tag along?

Daily Dog Challenge 1337. "Your Favorite Color"

I love a deep, rich red and I think it goes well with the boys' golden coats.

That said, this is not a backdrop I use very often as it has pronounced creases every 10" or so along the fold lines and takes a bit of cloning during post-processing to smooth things out.

I compromised today, given the triple digit heat, and took just a handful of shots per dog and then processed just one for each.


Night Out
Dapper Henry

Perhaps a stretch to say Henry is "Dapper" - as that implies a bit more neat and tidiness than Henry's coat will every be able to muster.
