Spectral Hounds

Spectral Hound

You can tell Henry hops as spins, the slight hang time with each hop being picked up in the image.

Spectral Hound 9/52

Unlike Henry, Toby spins by twisting. So, no head bobs, but you get a swish instead.

This is always a fun shoot to do.

The boys enjoy the action and the Easy Cookies, and I think the effect is cool!

Our Daily Challenge - March 2, 2019 - "Otherworldly"

Daily Dog Challenge 2672.
"Indistinct"

119 Picture in 2019 - #60. "It's all about the light"

This is 1.6s exposure @ f/7.1 with rear flash. The CFL behind the umbrella illuminates for the duration of the exposure with the flash "freezing" Toby at the end.

I worked with Toby off and on all day to teach "spin" for today's shoot.

It's an easy trick to teach, and he's a quick study, the repetition mostly about me being able to cue the trick without getting in the shot.

Truth in advertising: Yes, I did have to clone a few bits of me out. He still needs a big arm signal to complete the turn.

Next time... we'll do better next time.

Such a smart boy!
