Here's another pair taken in "dramatic lighting". I was trying for shots of Beau, but unfortunately they didn't turn out. It seems the contrast between a dark background and a light subject only happens when the subject is actually, well, light.
Zachary's light fur causes the camera to underexpose the background in a way that seems hard to reproduce with Beau's richer coloring.
Still, I think the shots of Zachary I took at the same time came out pretty nice, especially the first one (below) that should meet the "Formal Portrait" requirement of the Photography Elective.
