Stop Annoying me !!!!

By jholmes
This is a result of playing around with two fill in flash's and a fair bit of sunlight streaming through an open door (which lead to a chunk of over exposure), soon after this the dog got up in disgust and walked away !!!!.

Any feed back would be appreciated !!!!, I need all the help I can get.....

Well it is a gorgeous portrait, great eye contact and pose... although i must say the expression looks somewhat dissatisfied lol!

Like you said the leg and chest is somewhat over exposed, which is a wee shame, unfortunately i am useless on the photoshop side so i cannot help you there Sad

I think you could crop some of the legs out a bit, as there are no paws you do not really need them there, as such drawing the focus into the eyes and face!

none the less a great capture x x

You have made your own comments. The over exposure does nothing for an otherwise fine image. If you are using flash fill, especially two, you need to expose for the highlights - the sunlit area, in order to keep detail in them. You then need to set the flash power, either on manual (beat) or with auto compensation to fill in the shadows sufficiently.

You then need to come in closer on the face to get rid of curtains, etc.

Nothing here that couldn't have been solved by a faster shutter speed upping the speed to 125th or 250th would have allowed the flash to sync and avoided the burn out of the natural light, the main other problem I have is the green coller it took my attention as soon as I opened the image. It remains a lovely souvenir of a super dog, well done.
