Star the SilkyThanks to all the Monday Night Light participants this evening. Great discussion of Lightroom and it's resizing and output sharpening in the Print Module.
Not usually a fan of small dogs but I must admit this little Silky terrier is a cute little dog. I shot the image in a mobile studio with a Canon 5D Mk II, EF 70-200mm f/4, PW, and three lights. For the lighting setup, I used a single softbox as a main light slightly above the dog's eyes off to camera left. There were also two strip softboxes 45 degrees off the dogs tail. As a follow up to a previous post, the Creative Light softboxes are incredible. The backdrop was a simple black sheet draped down and then over a small grooming table.
The shot does not show off all of the exact breed characteristics but I thought it was a decent portrait. If you don't have enough challenge in your life try shooting show dogs in a small, mobile studio, especially big ones!
Kicking off our HDR Intensive here tomorrow morning.
