Messing around with the dog and the 2 flashes today. Thoughts?
OOF nose is distracting.
should've used a smaller aperture (higher number).
Black dogs are hard to photograph with anything except ultra soft ambient light.
hmm, not feeling it
Your dog looks excessively shiny.
this is the shiniest black dog i've ever seen. I wanted to use that in the shot, because shooting this dog is almost like shooting a black car. It's crazy!
But I do see what you guys are saying about the low f-stop. I'm not quite sure why I picked the one I did, except that the dog was super antsy, and I wanted to make sure I didn't have any blurring, so the f-stop was low to keep the shutter up.
thanks for the feedback!
But you had 2 flashes to stop the action, that's one antsy dog.
My lab is a shiny bastard, too. I cannot shoot him with flash, at all. Don't have any sort of lighting equipment, so I have to really time the part of the day and where I'm at if I'm going to shoot him. My other dog is either too afraid or too curious about the camera, so I can't really shoot her at any time of day.
Black dogs are a bitch to shoot but it can be done.
Yeah... I think i'm gonna redo the post on these shots, then post em back here for more c&c.
The more I look at em, they start to look really midtone contrasty and almost hdr-ish.
Maybe it doesn't matter, but maybe it'll make a difference...
