This photo confused me for awhile... looks like a stick is coming out of his head, was thinking it was falling on him or something...

That’s how she got her name. Bought collar on way to pick her up, put it on, and decided Canon on the spot

We recently bought a home on 5+ acres & Cody loves having room to run around.

Timber.
She's a rescue we saved in October.
She's 7 months, and already 55 pounds!

Trying out the Nikon 200-500. It was getting dark outside, but I managed to get Louie's attention-

My Goldendoodle has a coat very much like Louie with deep set eyes that are recessed in back of some pretty heavy eyebrows...

When I shoot my Doodle, I like to use a hotshoe flash in a straight up bounce position modified with a Joe Demb Flash Diffuser Pro with the FlipIt portion of the diffuser pointed about 45 degrees towards the dog.

This will brighten the eyes a bit but more importantly will add catch lights to her eyes. However, if I used direct flash, her eyes would get that blue glow like peoples red eyes...

Without flash - no catchlights in eyes - eyes look dead

With diffused flash - eyes brighter with catchlights - they look more alive... Of course having shorter hair in this image helps too!

They do look similar and good tip on using fill flash for the deep set eyes. They can be a challenge and also make it hard to focus on them. I use a Rogue Flash Bender just as you describe instead of the Demb Flip It, but I didn't have my flash on last night when trying out the telephoto lens.

Took this to see if I got the settings right.
Quite like it, actually.
Can't believe the lady is about to be a decade old in a few days.

The Flashbender is great as are numerous third party diffuser reflectors that are available on eBay and other sites. BTW: I shoot all of my dog portraits in the horizontal (landscape) position because I often need to do calendars from those images. That also solves the flash placement problem.

I will do all of my PP, such as correction exposure, contrast, and color as well as using the clone tool when necessary and then save the image as a PSD Master Image without cropping or output sharpening. Then I can revert to the Master Image and crop it how I need and apply the correct output sharpening without having to go back to the original RAW image and redo the original corrections. It doesn't take me any additional time to do this yet, it can save me hours.

I need square images for posting my Maltese Rescue California dogs on our rescue site. Originally, I just saved the images in a square format. Then when I was tasked with creating calendars, I didn't have any correctly formatted images to choose from. The Master Image technique solves that problem.

Alexis is no longer trying to defend her puppies from the camera - so it is easier to get a shot of her growing family.

The puppies are 20-days old and are growing very fast! Their eyes are open and they are learning to move all around the puppy pen.
