Dog Blog Post #1965

I wonder what the boys are wishing for?

Our Daily Challenge - Nov 14, 2015 - "Superstition"

Daily Dog Challenge 1475. "And Now For Something Completely Different"

The backdrop was created using the iPad art app "Procreate". It's a fun app, easy to use, with many brushes to choose from. That said, I'm frankly shocked the final picture came out as good as it did.

The boys' pictures were taken separately then masked and put atop the background using Photoshop Elements.

Why posed separately?

Because I wasn't sure a combined image would have their heads pointing where I needed it, given that it was shot against a plain black piece of fabric.

I figured by taking the pictures separately I could shift their positions a bit to get the right angles.

Why only one picture?

Because post-processing, including making the backdrop "painting" itself, is fairly time consuming.

What do you mean post #1965? Didn't we have #1973 just a few days ago?

Well, uh... yes, we did.

But apparently I'm not very good at numbering - or at least incrementing - hence my periodic checking of Blogger's official count of published posts to sync up with reality.

Clearly, I need to perform this check a bit more often!
