The dogs chase them up a tree for me to capture
Comments and suggestions welcome.
"Oh! They're so cute! Look at his pretty colors! They're so cute!"
That was the comments from my 9 year old daughter
And that was from the 6 year old daughter, sorry about that
They are indeed beautiful colors. Number 2 especially.
So cool to have such neat things in the backyard. All I have is deer.... and bear.... and supposedly a possible mountain lion (though they aren't suppose to be around here any more.)
Very nice! how did you light them?
Thanks for the comments....and thanks your daughters for me too :thumbup:
All of the shots were shot in daylight hours... I like a technique that I learned from Joe McNally (Hot shoe diaries).
I crank up the flash on a SB-800 to +3 and way underexpose the image to achieve this effect.
Wow, 2 and 3 look like magazine layout shots. Colors are great. Your lighting technique works very well indeed.
unbelievable! these are really great!
Very nice work, the lighting technique really worked well.
especially liked #2 and #4.
Wow! Those are some slick shots! I like them all, but the 3rd one is a killer shot! Congrats...
Thank you very much...your comments are very appreciated.
