Day 218 – Will Pose For Jerky Treats

Bailey used to hate it when I took pictures of her, in fact she was actually camera-shy. Over the years though, I’ve worked on building an association between portrait sessions with lots of treats. Now, she’ll tolerate the camera and flashes until the batteries run out; or the treats (whichever comes first).

Since I learned how to light her shiny coat in dark conditions with strobes, I actually like these pictures of her better than most daylight shots. Plus, it’s just fun to work with her on putting it all together.

Strobist info:

  • Key: AB800 Camera left (8 o’clock) @ 1/8 power into a 64″ Paul C. Buff PLM (no diffuser)
  • Rim: 430EX Camera right (2 o’clock) @1/16 power, zoomed all the way (105mm), bare.

    This is the one of the best shots I’ve ever seen of Bailey! I felt like she was sitting right in front of me. What a great “model”. Ha. It’s a keeper.

      That’s high praise considering you’ve seen them all! Thanks!

    I do hope you tell Bailey how beautiful she is. What a great photo! That’s one to frame.
