    I used only window lighting and a white sheet to take this picture since I do not have a studio setup or speedflash.

    Timing was critical -- right after a nap with treats in hand, otherwise he is entirely too hyper. You can see he still looks a little sleepy :)

    C&C welcome that takes into account my equipment limitations.

    nice shot :thumbup:

    not saying you should have used this on this shot, but a handy accessory to have is a homemade reflector. i use one alot when i am using window light.

    mine is a piece of cardboard covered in aluminum foil........crumple the foil first.

    white or gold posterboard works well too :)

    Thanks for the compliments and pointers. Here is one more. I like his facial expression better in this one, but the composition more in the first... (I don't like where his foot is chopped)

    i agree about the foot.

    the reflector would have came in handy on this one to help light the other side of his face.

    cute pup btw :)

    Thanks! Don't let the cute face fool you. He is a little terror -- except like right now when he is snuggled up next to me snoring!
