Hi Mom!!!
Zachary: "Hi Mom!"


Dog Blog Post #1098



Well… this was different.

From back to front, moving toward the camera, the setup is my typical black stretchy velvet fabric for a solid background (same as yesterday's Touch of Whimsy shot) then one of the boys illuminated by the flash, then the star spangled fine net/mesh fabric hanging straight down from the backdrop frame.

For the "Hi Mom!" shot, Zachary is obviously between the camera and fabric, with the light and black fabric behind that. With the fabric at an angle to the lens, it looks considerably more substantial. While Zachary had no problem coming and going pushing through the net, Henry was convinced it was a solid wall.

Don't be surprised to see this star-spangled net fabric, mostly likely hanging over something opaque, appearing again in a few days.

The top shot was one of the few where the autofocus picked up the dog instead of the fabric.

I loved the now-you-see-him-now-you-don't aspect of these pictures (and fabric)...

... but I just couldn't get past the wrinkles to choose one of them as the "the shot" of the day.
