Fun with bounce flash: a new puppy photo essay
Posted By: hamidlmt, 02-21-2008, 12:47 AM

Hmmm... just who the heck is that?


Egads! It's going to eat me!


I'm not too sure about this...


Well, ok... I guess we can be friends...


All taken with the K10D, FA 50mm 1.4 and AF-540 flash, mounted on the hot-shoe, bounced behind and overhead to whatever wall was behind me.

Cute. The last image, following the others, gives the impression the larger brown dog is resigned to the fate of an overly energetic smaller dog in the house.

I just love 'em too. I could do without most people, but I have to have dogs in my life!

Chaya, the older brown dog, really sulked the first couple of days after Sofie's arrival. Now, they get along so well. And, it's very often Chaya that initiates a wrestling match or tug of war with a toy, flopping herself on the ground to make it a fair scuffle.

Those look great, I really like the second one.

edit: oops, I actually meant to say the third was my favorite. But they are so darn cute it really is hard to pick!

You know it's hard to pick a favourite from the group. But I like the commentary and flow of the series. Well captured. Of course the last one has that sentimental tug but they are all very good individually.

I bet that least one and maybe the second (for different reasons) could be used for a greeting card company.

Looks like the pup has settled in nicely. The older dog does look a bit fed up but im sure he will have a new spring in his step with addition of a ball of energy

hahahaha... #2 is the kind of moment I'm always seeing with my two Shibas but I never have the camera in hand or right light when it happens.

I love seeing your doggie pix.

Greeting cards? hmm.... I have no clue how to get involved with those folks... I'll keep an eye out and look into it.

Chaya, the older dog goes back and forth between being fed up with the pup and playing wildly with her. Chaya has boundless energy... she'll play fetch all day. Having the puppy around has actually tamed much of her 2 year old puppy energy.

I just love your shibas! You'll get those types of moments one day. Honestly... it was pure luck getting that shot!

Kids are tough

What a great series, the crash at the end and the look on the older dogs face is wonderful. It really conveys just how exhausting the little monsters can be... no matter what mammal you happen to be.

Nice work with the bounce flash off of the back wall.

Must get a flash...

PS I know I should know, but what breed are these beautiful dogs?

Thanks! Yes, the little one is a handful, but not nearly as challenging as the older one was when we first got her. She's actually learning at a very quick pace.

Chaya... the older one.... she's a pitt bull/lab mix. Sofie, the younger, is a German shepherd mix.
