I need help with the White balance/Contrast in these, but I think everythign else turned out alright
what is the light source to the right ..... maybe add another light from the left ?
he does not look depressed just tired!!! Had a hard day!
the light source is actually a window. I tried to work with it...if I was to theoretically place a light on the left, wouldn't that take away a lot of the mood?
Aww, just wants someone to play with him/her!
whoo hoo! if that's the idea that got across then good stuff..how's the actual photo though hahaha
I like them a lot. I love B&W photos! I would never add light to it. It would take away from the "depressed" look if the dog was all lit up.
thanks so much!
I think you caught the mood completely.
Sure, some light from our left would balance it a bit, and give a hint more shadow detail, but sometimes you just go with what's there.
I know if I tried to put a reflector of some sort with my dog, the whole pose and mood would be wrecked.
I will cheat a bit in post processing on something like this, and add a catchlight to the shadowed eye, to balance things just a bit more.
first picture is great, I like the dark shadows
