Just found this with a bit of the behind the scenes, so apparently not composite...

She swears by that they are on location! (Im no expert lol, but i believe her for one). No composites at all. Watched a bit of an interview with her & Mia McCormick.
Shes did say that clients will contact her and say stuff like ..... 'hi. I love your stuff. How does it work? .. do i just turn up to your studio and do a shoot then pick a backdrop that suits the shot?? etc''

Also, she didnt mention handlers exactly .....but did say she will shop out a leash or two :-D.
The balloon shot- Assistant holding the ballons was shopped out and it's Kaylees own dog Joshua in the shot!

Caught this thread yesterday and gave me a bit of inspiration to try some stuff out and get lower than ive already been getting with my dog for shots.

Watch your back Kaylee, I'm in the game now. LOL! ..

I just realized I saw her shooting once in Rockport, MA when I was there doing BIFs, unless there is more than one dog photographer with long bright red hair :-) She had an assistant with her that was holding a strobe with beauty dish. You can see that most of the shots are with a beauty dish, just from looking at the dogs' eyes. There are two ways these days to get shallow DoF shots like this with strobes: The old-school way with a strobe and ND filters (required to shoot at sync speed wide open in most outdoor conditions), or the new way with one of the many battery operated HSS-capable strobes that will let you use very fast shutter speeds.

Really great imagery there at Dogbreath!

That is one of the looks that I would like very much to achieve with my wildlife photography. A lot of those photos (the ones in natural settings) would look phenomenal if they were deer or cougars or whatever in the frame. Unfortunately, the wild critters don't tolerate one getting so close for a long enough time to set up such shots as these. Remote shooting doesn't work, either, because of the need for extremely precise framing.......the ability to move the camera an inch or so in any direction can completely make or break the shot.

If someone could figure out how to use this method for completely wild animals - with the use of a big beauty dish and all - and get results that were every bit as good as Dogbreath's, then they would really have some world-class imagery!

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".

Never in life. A drone wouldn't get you a natural expression.

I watched her on Kelby 1 and it was well done. She NEVER used flash for the Kelby 1 seminar/ tutorial. Her portfolio work does look like flash is used a lot.

Adding to this quote. In KelbyOne, she doesnt ever use a flash in the sessions however, she does mention that she uses flashes a lot and even has underwater ones that are used as well. (Stated in the inspirational video errr... course)

Also the way she adds vignetting is also something that makes it look a lot like flash as it is well done for focusing on the puppers.

Amazing work for sure. Makes me try each time.
