Dog Blog Post #2096
The boys, wishing for wonderful Forever Homes for all the pups who need one.
Daily Dog Challenge 1605. "National Puppy Day"
Our Daily Challenge - Mar 23, 2016 - "The Elements"
As I've mentioned before, flame and fur don't mix.
The top shot is of Henry (without the candle lit) masked with a shot of the candle, which I lit after Henry exited the set.
The second is of Zachary (also without the candle lit) - with a slider pushed here and there - then with lens flare added in Photoshop Elements
In retrospect, I probably should have picked that shot (and slidering) to mask the flame into.
Alas, I ran out of time.
Behind the Magic
The boys were photographed, sans flame, with a small softbox on the flash.
The flash was sitting on the floor in front of them but off camera.
The candle was photographed without the flash* at f/3.5 1/15s.
* Since my camera is set up to trigger the flash with a small flash of its own, and I didn't bother to turn that off, the camera flash technical did fire. However, the amount of light it puts out at that distance is barely perceptible.
