Dog Blog Post #705: Today, the lead picture was for...
Our Daily Challenge - May 31, 2012 - "Peek-a-Boo"
Scavenge Challenge June 2012 - "8. Use an item with obvious fringe or tassels as part of a composition (main subject open)."
Well, weren't those two challenges just made for each other!
The boys really are pros at this. They dropped onto the big pillow as soon as I put it out. They chased after the cookies I tossed to get them back off again so I could spread the cream blanket on top. Then they dropped neatly into place once I was done. I draped the blanket over them, took a half dozen shots, and we were done.
I think they were bummed that it was over so soon, but I made it up to them by giving them the rest of the cookies in the ramekin anyway. A full shoots wages for two minutes of work. Sweet deal if you can get it. :)
I had fully intended on using this for the Daily Dog Challenge of...
"213. Monochrome - Take a monochromatic picture of your dog, today!"
... but it wasn't meant to be.
Plaid in monochrome is... unappealing... and the cream blanket was way too bright, overpowering everything else. Thankfully, I had taken a lighting test shot at the start of the shoot...
Henry insisted that I disclose that he is not a harbor seal with ears and stubby paws, but rather a Golden Retriever laying with this rear feet twisted around toward the back, thereby causing an unfortunate optical illusion.
I'm sure I'll be hearing from his lawyer about this.
