More from the photo essay I am working on at the local rspca drop in centre.

This series is compiled form the most recent shoot and is the style/idea I am going for. People and their animals together showing thoughts, emotions and just trying to sniff something.

All constructive comments welcome, especially from outside the doc world as it will be shown to people like you.

I tried to keep a balance between the app and rubbish light, used a sb600 speedlight with student defuser (toilet paper and tape).

like this one, the light from the window really helps. good to see them both smiling and the dogs tounge makes the shot fun, and as the rspca is a serious organisation i think a touch of humour helps for people not be so intimidated when entering....well just my opinion

Cheers Ian, people can feel intimidated or scared because they dont know whats wrong with the animal. That said most people turn up for injections or worming so its a chilled, if noisy, atmosphere!

I would say... try to get in lower and closer, with a wide angle, and get more of the looking up from the ground feel... except if this is a vet clinic then the animals and people will be stressed already. It sort of tells on the dogs faces. So I don't know if this would be very good advice, but you could try the technique in a different situation (monty at home for example)

I love the idea here, and think these are a great start. The shadows are a bit deep and need lifting - are you using fillin flash direct to subject, or pointing the flash at the ceiling or a white wall?)

I am keen to do a photodocumentary story like this at my local centre, so will keep an eye on yours!

Hi sus, thanks for you input. The flash is fill in aimed straight through a defuser.

Agree with the lower pov and have used it a couple of time on other pics in the series. Main problem is drool and wet nose's getting past the hood onto the lens!

Good luck yourself and if you need any help or information on how I got the project going dont be shy in pm'ing me and Ill see if I can help!

Peps

Oh and cheers to you as well Edmund

I do think some of these animals definitely reflect their owners, and vice versa, especially the woolly one with the lady in flowery wellies! I think #1 is auditioning to be Camera Killer mark 2 though Wink
