Laura: What a wonderful photo of Sadie. I know how hard it is to bring out the detail in a one colored pet, as my cat is all black. You have done a great job with these details here. The red BG completes the composition-a very dear portrait of this pet. #1399458

One of the best pet portraits I've seen Laura. Beautifully lit and executed. Can you share your setup? #9592858

Laura Greene August 10, 2011

Irene, Lyn, Chris, Dale - Thank you! Dale, One main light, one fill light, and a background light on a long piece of deep red velveteen fabric. It is hung on a stand and dropped to the floor, then pulled over an oversized ottoman. Extra lighting effect in CS5 or Flaming Pear (can't remember which) #9594914

Hi Laura: A fabulous portrait of a very special dog. The colors that were chosen compliment the colors of the dog’s coat along with the red fabric, an overall great production. Merna #9616715
