This week Tiny and her little dog Lola attended a show at a gallery showcasing the work of a local pet photographer. She was pleasantly surprised to see that a large framed portrait of her and Lola had been included.
I know, I know I am about to post yet another photo of my dog. This week I learned about the smudge tool in photoshop. I’m showing what a rookie I am in photoshop by admitting that I didn’t know about this tool already. I found a really cool tutorial on Facebook that taught how to do a painterly effect without needing to buy a software package or some fast app. I’d rather learn how and why things work and not just take the short cuts all the time. At times it can be very frustrating but in the end I feel better about it.
If anyone is interested in learning more about this check out Gavin Phillips on Facebook. He does some free brush downloads and has short videos demonstrating his technics. I’ve had a lot of fun learning some new things from him this week!
This is only meant to be a joke! But it fits a theme for my photo challenge so I am going with it! We have two dogs that think they are little people. When I am in the studio setting up for a shoot they like to follow me and try to get me to take their photo. They always go straight for the ottoman… When I tell them to sit down and smile I really think they know what I am saying! For me and my dogs that is just one of the ways we “play.” I thought I’d show you a photo of each of them “At Play” with me in the studio this week!
Louie always tilts his head to the side just a little bit. It’s his go to pose. And Lola can be a real glamour girl! I had my box of silk flowers out as part of a shoot I was planning. I was giggling because I told her lay down and she let me lay several of the flowers around her. She wasn’t thrilled about it but she knew that she couldn’t leave until I got a shot! I can’t help it, they make me laugh…
