    Thanks matt. I just wanted to step away from the typical pet photos and try something slightly different.. was hoping they'd turn out better than they did but what can you do, eh.

    nice light.

    i'm trying to get my dog to hold a strobe and bounce it off a wall to light herself. so far, she just takes it and runs. half-way there.

    BWAhahahahahaaaa! Great title!

    I like the second one the best, where there are some catchlights in the eyes (faintly visible). How amazing the Dogfather stayed still long enough for you to take these

    Heh K_Pugh or anyone else listening... how, exactly, does one get this effect? I was dorking around with it the other night and I couldn't quite nail it. What kind of lighting setup is it? Or is it certain settings on exposure? Post processing? I iz confuzed! :)

    Thanks!

    I had the shutter speed set to 1/200th and my aperture about f11 i think, enough to eliminate all ambient light and keep enough of the dog in focus. Just one flash with a 12" snoot about 2 foot above the dog, slightly in front of his face and pointing at him. (i hand held the flash and just kept making small movements and snapping away until i got a decent 'pose'). Post processing was the basic RAW adjustments then the B&W conversion tool in Photoshop CS3 with a little play around with the filters.

    Hope that helps... the main thing is the snoot on the flash.


    Here's an untouched one from the original RAW if it helps to see what came out of the camera.
