our yellow lab, Holly, and our aging cat, Zippy. I tried to capture the old age and sickness in the pictures of the cat. as sad as it is, he is an old and very wise cat and has been through a lot...(you can see his shaved arms from being in the hospital lately)...I wanted the shots to reflect that. the dog, on the other hand, is youthful (but lazy!) I don't really have much experience with pet portraits, or really any portraits, but I'm trying to learn. I was just using one flash (sb400 reflected off very high ceilings and sometimes a wall) + a little ambient light for these shots. Please let me know how I can improve on composition and lighting for these shots. I don't post pictures on OTAP very often, but I would really appreciate input from some folks who know what they're talking about also, if you hate the vignetting, let me know that too! i sort of went overboard with it on some of these shots but i thought it fit the mood. i know how OT feels about vignetting so i'm prepared for the ensuing rape.. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.
