I've been trying to get a decent portrait of Dozer lately and finally decided to take one of my studio flashes outside and shoot him with an umbrella. It was an overcast day. I metered the ambient light with a Sekonic L-358, and then set the flash power close to the same reading.

Canon 5 D
70-200 2.8 Non IS
Novatron M-600 Digital Studio Light
Sekonic L-358 Light Meter
Exposure 1/125th @ f4

Ahhhhhh! He's so beautiful! His eyes are so soulful. He's grown so fast. Thanks for sharing! I've loved watching him grow up.

Mastiffs are wonderful dogs. Great shot! Take pics like this every few weeks until he's a year or 2.. The change in size is incredible...


Wish I didn't have all of the background noise in my pic. Not as great a photo as yours, but here's my Mastiff... Turk:

Nice capture! Great colours and DOF!

Try to include the paws as well next time. The paws are better to include than a bigger part of its back! ;)

Vheilman,
Turk looks like a great dog, beatiful too. Was he wild as the wind when he was a puppy?

Dozer belongs to my stepdaughter I just babysit him during the day while she's at work. This is the first Mastiff I've had the pleasure to be associated with.

Dozer is a wild child and constantly has me laughing at his playful antics. Helping to raise him has added much to my life.

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Pete

Oh, he's growing up fast. I remember his earlier pics when he was tiny little pup.
