"Why am I advertising Toilet Paper???"

Dog Blog Post #1650

One day a Gentleman, the next you're hawking toilet paper. You never know what a Canine Model will be called on to advertise.

Editor's Note: This is my first try using my new (second) Speedlight (thank you Hubby!) and soft box trained on the background.

I got to play with the camera's A/B groups and vary the exposure values to try to create an even tone across the back.

While not quite right, I am quite pleased with the result and look forward to other multi-flash opportunities.

Photography Assignment

Daily Dog Challenge 1158. "Canine Model"

Our Daily Challenge - Jan 2, 2015 - "Cover Art"

The Stunt Double

Jungle Kitty is the boys' stunt double, so I don't have to flash them any more times than necessary.

Test Shot - One Flash
Single Flash

Test Shot - Two Flashes
Two Flashes

Flash on the right for both shots. Added a background flash on the left in the second shot.

Probably should have reduced the background flash a bit more. (Note to self: Beware - hard to verify flash uniformity on the camera's LCD.)

Or possibly turned the key flash a bit more toward the background

Or perhaps added another reflector.

Or… something.

Still, not bad for my first try with a second flash.

I like the kitty stunt double. But more importantly, no toilet paper could ever be softer than a Golden Retriever.
