A quick studio session in the farm shed
This week’s theme in our pet photographer’s 52-week project is Black and White. So I decided on A quick studio session in the farm shed with the Lyons family dogs.
I have to admit, I really push myself with this project by leaving things to the last minute. Being an ENFP it seems to be the way I thrive, getting my energy on the deadline. So today I headed off into town for the weekly grocery shop and got caught up for much longer than I planned. I literally arrived home in the dark. The first task was to direct the chickens safely into their coop as they were still meandering in the vegetable garden which is fully enclosed. I then unpacked the car and packed the refrigerator with all our goodies for the week. Once that was done, I grabbed my gear, some treats and the dogs and headed into the shed for a quick studio session.
I set my Canon 5D MKIV to Monochrome, however as I always shoot raw files, these are easily converted back into colour. It’s great to shoot in black and white to get a grip on the shadows and highlights.
You’ll notice the #3dogkateers all have their knits on as it’s starting to get cold here on the farm in Wootton. Today was a particularly windy day. Poor Henry hasn’t got a winter coat yet. I need to take him into town and get him fitted with a schmick new jacket for winter. If you have any suggestions please leave them in the comments.
For these photos I’m using my Elinchrom RX-1200 lights feathered across the front of the dogs.
I hope you enjoy these photos.
On The Wall
Here is a trio collection of 20×30 framed fine art featuring the ever-so-handsome Harvey in his Hamish McBeth knit. This classic style comprises archival fine art printing on cotton rag paper. The photo is then matted with a high-quality acid-free board and framed. The artwork is then finished behind framed glass, with stainless steel hanging wire ready to hang. I think this looks pretty cool in black and white for this particular room.
