Dog Blog Post #294: The Daily Shoot for today was...
Make a photograph that features a grid of some sort today.
The first thing that popped into my mind was a chess board, and for better or worse, I didn't explore anything else.
I shot this twice - once in the early afternoon...
... and once a few hours later with the black velvet background...
... and I honestly wasn't very happy with the lighting/color in either case.
Why is it that I can go for days and be really happy with how things come out - the picture bright and clear, and then, for no apparent reason, the wheels fall off and everything either comes too blue (or red or yellow...)
I'm shooting in the same place, and mostly at the same time of day.
Oh well, enough whining.
I did try to shoot the dogs together (doesn't that sound ominous!) but getting two big dogs around a big chess board and having it all fit in my little camera on my little set just wasn't happening.
Not sure if that's a Missing Skill, or a "just plain ain't happenin'" skill. :)
I chose the picture at the very top as my "Daily Shoot" shoot, because it looked the best in square thumbnail form, but I think the lighting/pose is marginally better in Zachary's shot.
Then again, I could be wrong. :)
