Dog Treat Bar that is…..🙂

He’s awesome and so is all my family that continues to help me in all that I do!!!


So here is the techie stuff if you are interested. I shot these with a Canon 5D Mark II at F11, 1/60 shutter speed and ISO 100. I zoomed in anywhere from 80-100mm. For this shoot I used 3 Canon 600 ex-rt speedlites with the  ST-E3-Rt Transmitter.

So here’s what it looked like

Set up 1

And it you were wondering what is on the two speedlites that lite the background. Well I sort of didn’t have a green gel to go over the speedlites to make the green color that you see in the background. So I sort of improvised.

Multipurpose filters. And I will be sporting one of those later today!

The only big regret I have is that during the shoot I missed some really cute shots because I didn’t put in new batteries before the shoot. If I would have put in new batteries my speedlites would have recycled faster and I would have gotten those shots.

But no time for regrets now, It’s Time to Celebrate!!!!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all,




Lighting experiment

16 03 2016

So we have a lot of dolls around the house!

And my daughter nicely let me borrow her American Girl doll of the Year, Lea Clark, for this fun lighting shoot. This is an extension of my last shoot that dealt with using a gold umbrella to light the subjects. It was interesting to see how it looked on fur of the cats last time, so now I thought I would try it on a different subject.

All the images were shot at F8, 1/125 shutter speed and an ISO of 100. I used my Canon 5D Mark II for this shoot and was zooming around 60-90 mm.

First let’s look at Lea using the golden umbrella

Now here is Lea using a standard umbrella.

So a very huge difference.

Let me know what you think and if you have any questions or comments, please leave those below.

And Lea was a perfect subject! A great American Girl!




The Midas Touch

7 03 2016

So I never bring out a gold umbrella that I have, and thought what the heck🙂

In the following images all were taken using a golden umbrella attached to a strobe. The camera settings were F 8.0, 1/125 sec and 100 ISO using a Canon 5D Mark II.

I wanted to show a bit of a contrast in my subjects so first I chose Murdock on a black paper background.

Looking offRwhatR

Then I went to Bruce on the black background.


And this next one I call crumbs. LOL


Bruce what a mess! LOL! Clean that mouth up before pictures! LOL!

Love these cats!!!

But I would love to hear from all of you, which cat really makes the gold umbrella and black background work.
