    Default Portrait of Dexter and Chickin

    So I've decided to try and get back into photography, only I'm quite out of practice and more than a little amateur. I also don't have a lot of room to have any stuff set up permanently, which is annoying. I spent most of the week clearing out the garage so i could play around with studio lights with my partner subjected to sitting for me, however, we ended up ditching that idea and photographing the pets instead, lol. After much jumping around, making weird noises and acting like idiots to hold their attention long enough to get a few shots, there's a couple that I think turned out ok. Unfortunately I couldn't get them both together(I can only imagine how frustrating that would be to get!), but here's a couple of Dexter and Chickin.

    They are both great. I am amazed at the photos that get posted here. I feel like I'm the only person whose pets don't stay still!
    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
    You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

    Thanks everyone! Dexter wasn't so impressed about the whole thing, I had him perched on a bale of straw in a wheel barrow to get him up to a workable height and so he wouldn't run off, but after a while he'd had enough and started crying and not paying attention to anything we did because he wanted down. We gave him lots of breaks though (and treats!) and he peed on the background twice, lol. The cat was just happy to be somewhere new and explored around the garage when it wasn't his turn. At least cats are easier to amuse with noises and bits of straw to get photos.

    D-dog, don't worry.. for every in focus photo there's about 300 out of focus ones(at least!) :P Animals are not the easiest things to work with when it comes to photos. An assistant is an absolute must for studio stuff anyway. No way would I have had any luck if my OH wasn't jumping around like an idiot or dispensing treats regularly, and moving the lights around. He likes photography too so we swapped jobs every so often.

    Wow they are truely amazing! I would love to get some proper potraits done of my lot - unfortuately its not cheap so my amateur shots will have to do for now : (

    You really need to get yourself a studio! I would definitely pay for shots like that.

    They are both great shots and now you can have a double whammy and educate your self on photoshopping the dog and cat together. The black background will make that so easy.
