Dog Blog Post #1612



Turned the reflector black-side out today (anti-reflector?) on the left to limit light to just the flash on the right.

The flash was lowered to dog-head height.

The camera was sitting on the floor.

This put the boys in Partial lighting - an effect I really like.

Daily Dog Challenge 1120. "Partial"

Our Daily Challenge - Nov 25, 2014 - "One Shot Two Ways"

I know folks have trouble telling the boys apart, something I understand from the viewpoint of looking at other people's dogs but find inexplicable when staring at my own.

Today's shots, in addition to their obvious layout differences, reveal (to me, at least) their very different appearance despite the similar poses.

Top shot is Henry - as soft on the inside as he is on the outside. Head down and demure, ears flopping forward, his "loose jammies" skin and thick ruff shown to their advantages.

He looks every bit the "stuffed animal" sweet that he is.

Second shot is Zachary - smart as can be, always watching and processing what is going on, ready to spring into action if needed.

His skin is tighter, his fur is smoother, his appearance always more taut, if that makes sense.

If you need a dog to unload your drier or pick up your laundry and put in into the basket, he's your guy.

If you just want it hauled around the house, Henry will do. :)

All the shots are gorgeous, but I just adore that last one! There's something about their heads that always tells me which of the boys is which, although once in a while I do get fooled. Henry has more of a puppy look to him in my eyes.

Great photos as usual! Its hard for others to tell our boys apart sometimes but I think its so obvious! Guess its because we know their personalities so well!
