    My wife carved a pumpkin that i really like, its of a doberman. So my idea is to have our doberman sit beside it tonite while lit and take a few photos of them together. Id like to get some ideas on settings, or just how to make the photo better. Using a Nikon D40 with the kit lense.

    You may need to take two separate pictures that way you can get a lighted picture of your dog and maybe photoshop the pumpkin in so that you can get the glow.

    Just an idea
