Well a athletic trainer/ coach at my school was talking with me at one of the football games I was shooting about shooting a set of portraits of him and his French Bull Dog "Meatball" for his wifes birthday present. I agreed. So we met up at his house and got these results. He wanted the gangster themed shoot and I was more then happy to comply:) I really love how similar he is to Meatball. (Here is the set of photos just of Meatball- https://photography-on-the.net …php?p=6491485#p​ost6491485 ) Any C&C and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

1 and 2 are REALLY good pictures! Great work. It doesnt look like you used any artificial lighting but its not too bad on that end. You captured the bond between the 2 really well. It makes me want to get a dog. haha

The last 2 are what will sell for the wife =P

I would like to see more detail in the face, of course the shades prevent this on the first three. The fourth with out shades shows the real connection. All pictures are good just the shades prevent the meaningful relationship being conveyed.The fourth one (#4) really show the relationship between the pet and owner. Opinion......eyes make the pic often.

Nice. Meatball's black snout matches the coaches beard.

Nicely done. Funny how the pets sometimes take on the look of the owners. Too cool and well done. You covered the gangster look really well in the first few photos.

Is it just this monitor, or do the first two look slightly underexposed?

Thanks for that, I have an equal amount of shots with the glasses off as I do with the glasses on, however I found the poses in those with the glasses on better then the ones with out.

I think it's just your monitor, the first one is a bit dark around the edges due to my processing, but the second ones fine. The prints also look fine.
I tried to re-process the shot to fix what I could, although I kept the colors the same because on my monitor, and in print they looked fine.

These are Great! Love them all. In that last shot, he looks like James Gandolfini.
