Dog Day Afternoon

Dog Day Afternoon

Posted: 23.03.07 | Category: [Animals]  

I was at some friends last weekend and they'd always wanted me to get a few shots of their 2 dogs. This one here, Gaby, is a Dogue de Bordeaux, which googling tells me is some form of Mastiff/Bulldog. She's not been feeling well lately, and the sad face says it all. She is the more 'photogenic' of the 2 dogs though. The sun was shining in through a window directly behind me, it seemed to make such a perfect shot.

  • Great detail, and sunlight gives a great contrast with the dark background. I can feel the sadness....

  • A fine doggie portrait. The brilliant light helps create that dark background making Gaby stand out well. Nicely done.

  • You've done well to get the exposure right. Nice doggy.

  • What a great expression :-)
    The shot looks really professional to me with the use of the light to good effect.
    Good work!

  • Awww poor doggy. Sad expression and squinting in the sun. Given the harsh lighting this is probably a shot that I would have avoided, but you've made it work really well. The shadow frames it perfectly :)

  • Oh Gaby looks like she is in jail. Nice capture of a great lighting effect.
