Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum

It's cold outside. So it's a great month to focus on indoor shooting.

For this assignment I'm not going to request that you use a flash or any fancy lighting. Natural light should be fine. We can take the principles for shooting outdoors inside. We will need to probably up the iso on our cameras (most modern cameras handle it pretty well). 

Tips and ideas:

Look for the light: place your dog near a window or a lamp. Window light is awesome and can be quite dramatic. Have your dog looking towards the light works really well.

Pay attention to your backgrounds: Clutter can be your enemy (I know it's mine.) Often I will find my self running around and clearing items that are distracting in the picture. Another way to remove it is to shoot with very shallow DOF. 

Find things in your house that you can use as backdrops, or props (Laurie is the queen of props!)

Capture those everyday moments or those cute little things about your dog that you will cherish forever. The most important part of all of this.

Have fun. Can't wait to see what you all come back with.

Oh, very important, if you are shooting indoors with tungsten light or any other artificial light source pay careful attention to your white balance.

I am putting away Christmas decorations as we speak. I need to get it done for the great window light I have where the tree is located. Can't wait to tackle this assignment. Thanks for doing this, Nancy!

Glad to hear you are feeling better. 

Thanks for another great lesson Nancy.

Cant wait to see what you come up with!

Beautiful images, Nancy.  Can't wait to try next weekend.

look forward to seeing what you create!

I love it when I see Holly curl up in the small beds designed for our Maltese.  She makes herself tiny and actually fits into the bed - although some of her is overflowing.  Canon 7D2, 35mm f/2 IS prime lens - ISO 400, 1/60 second at f/4...

So cute. My last dog used to do this when she visited her one dog friend. The bed was way to small for her, but she found a way to curl up in it. I wish I had a picture of it.

Adorable.  Chance likes to curl up in a tiny toy box, as if to say "mine"!

Holly is so pretty. Vern does this too. When Megan's dogs are here, they steal Vern's bed and he will curl up in the smallest bed in the house. It is so pitiful!

Love Holly's eye's.  She is very cute in her not so big bed!

Lovely shot.
