Strawberry Moon

Dog Blog Post #2185

Photography Assignment

My "studio" (Kitchen) is ~8' across, from fridge to sink.

I have no idea how long the boys are, but I'll guess 5-6' from tip of nose to tip of tail.

That doesn't leave much room to get a picture of a full-grown Golden Retriever walking!

I started the boys sitting, facing the camera, on the far left. I then called them to me as I clicked the remote to start the one second exposure.

I took Henry's first (as always) and found that when I captured him looking somewhat normal - with a level back - he was running out of room before the exposure finished, leaving him... well... headless. :(

Shortening the exposure wasn't an option, as that lost the ghostliness.

With Zachary's shots, I started the shots a bit earlier.

This gave a better capture of his head (it was in the frame!) but showed a ghostly impression of his former sitting position as well a very curved back, since he was still "getting going" when the flash fired at the very end of the exposure.

Guess Hubby is going to need to build me a bigger kitchen. :)

Note: A few sliders might have been pushed to move the image out of the yellow end of the spectrum and into more strawberry tones.
