Holy Moly…Scarlett hasn’t been featured on the new blog yet? For those that don’t know… Scarlett makes blog appearances more than the average dog. I take so many pictures of this poor dog. She is my practice with everything photography related. I try out lighting, color correction, settings, and everything else possible on her. I can’t say Scarlett likes having her picture taken, but she puts up with it because I make her. So when my new studio lighting came in on Friday and I called her over as soon as I set it up. I had to take her picture. I was so excited to give it a try. The shutter on my camera opened and closed and with the first click and flash, she gave me the, “what the heck is going on?” look. Generally, I’m a natural light photographer so this little pup hasn’t seen much of a flash in her whole life.
After I took a few pictures in the living room, I quickly set up a little background in the second bedroom where the lighting will mainly be used. The following pictures are a result of her wondering why on earth the room would be flashing. She was checking out the ceiling, looking at the floor, wondering what could possibly make the lighting change so quickly. These lights were all new to her. It was hilarious.
Once she figured out the flash was coming from the softbox, I had Shawn break out the lunch meat so she would cooperate a little. After she had fresh meat in front of her, she paid no attention to me.
