Project 52 Photo Challenge : High Key (and a sneak peek) : (16/52)

Today’s post is double duty (look at me being efficient!). I recently had the good fortune to meet and photograph Shadow and Jack, a Husky mother and son duo who were rescued as strays and are currently in a great foster home while they’re waiting to be adopted. I’ll post more of their story (and lots more photos) soon, but two of the images from their session were a perfect fit for this week’s Project 52 theme — High Key / Low Key. Since I’ve already done a bunch of each of these styles, I wanted to try something a little different and approach a high key with only natural lighting.

Anyway…Here’s Shadow enjoying the summer morning. I used the garage door in place of white seamless; it also doubled nicely as a reflector since it was nearly white anyway. I should mention that these shots make Shadow look a lot more serious than she really is (dramatic lighting tends to have that effect). She’s such a sweetheart. You might notice her wet snout in the second photo — she’d just been playing in the sprinkler and biting at the water like a puppy.

Stay tuned for more of Shadow and her bouncy pup, Jack, coming up soon!

For now, continue on the blog ring path to Stephanie Madeline and see what she has in store for us!
