    I loved these shots that this photographer got at Dogs Trust Snetterton. Why can't I get pics like this! Though I think he is big on lighting....

    No disrespect to the photographer, Sus, but just high key shots though, shouldn't be too hard to do.

    It might be worth checking whether or not your camera has a high key setting tucked away somewhere, I know Olympus DSLRs do..and probably many others.

    Otherwise you can experiment with the exposure compensation control to dial in a degree of overexposure. Also try to use a white or light coloured background.

    He probably has one of those lastolite hi-lite things that will give you a plain white background and uses a couple of lights either side of the subject. No big secret really, you just need the kit.

    I want that collie cross!!! Wink

    Actually I prefer the one of the staffie which doesn't have a high key background. I think I just need a nice suitable background like that set up in a suitable place in the house. My comments on my last lab picture showed that I strugged with the background lighting and shadowing. I think the ones here where he's totally removed all background and just left the dog suspended in white space look a bit weird. Its just getting the right gentle shadow around the dog. But if I go for a 'set' (ie like those gundog backgrounds) I won't have to worry about that. I have some ideas!

    Just find a door/wall with peeled off paints, like you would with people portrait. Should work nicely with the colour and textures.

    Good idea, I want something in the house or garden so I've got it to hand. But that's given me some ideas.
