    Those photos are amazing! Great job! So jealous!

    I love being behind the camera....I just have no idea what I'm doing. Maybe now with both @spork3127 and @Vince00 they can give some tips on pet photography. I have an external flash and I have no idea how to use it.

    Wow so cool! They are awesome pics! I agree with @Libra926 - my fav pic is the same. Kain looks like he's resting or something. Idk but it's so sweet!

    To everyone:
    If you are interested in improving your pet photography, I strongly recommend the book "Beautiful Beasties: A Creative Guide to Modern Pet Photography" by Jamie Phlughoeft. Jamie is an incredible pet photographer and her book is a no-nonsense approach to everything from camera settings to editing to branding and price setting (if you want to turn pro). She also just happens to be very nice. I started following her work long before I bought her book. She's very helpful if you seek advice via Facebook - when time allows. IMO, this is a book best suited to amateurs, but I think anyone can benefit from a read through.


    @Vince00 First off, I want to say thank you for sharing your amazing pics of Kain. He's a gorgeous dog and you are very talented behind the camera! Your lighting setup is fantastic. I haven't gotten there yet. I mostly shoot in ambient lighting. Studio lighting is a challenge and a half.

    Second, in response to your question,a "faux" leather jacket that might suit your purposes is the Zelda Wisdom rockstar halloween costume. We bought a large one for Chance a couple of years ago. Its fit will depend on how big your dog is. Chance is a larger bulldog so anything smaller wouldn't work. The "choker" and wig come with the costume. The choker is fabric with metal studs. We bought it at Halloween but you can probably find it online.



    Third, how are you liking the 24-70? I've been debating this lens (or the 17-40..or the 10-22) for a while. I also shoot with the 60D and would love a true wide angle, which would mean a non L lens on a cropped sensor but I can't quite convince myself to drop cash on something that won't upgrade to a full sensor in a couple of years. Do you shoot primarily with the 24-70? I agree with @spork3127 ... the 50 f1.4 is a fantastic lens. A little slow but good for sleeping and/or patient bullies.

    @malaviKat I'll have to check that out, he does fill that jacket in pretty tight hey. Thank you for the kind words as well as everyone else that commented in this post.

    The 24-70 is a great lens and in my case on my camera the most. I have the 50mm 1.8 and the 85mm 1.8 but with the 24-70 @ 2.8 and 70-200mm @ 4 I rarely use anything else it seems.

    I'm hoping to use the 85mm @ 1.8 alot more as it is such a nice lens.

    For the 24-70 it is a heavy lens for sure (nicknamed "The Brick") I sometimes wonder if it is AS SHARP as people let on to be but when I get a great focus with no movement I do get sharp photos for sure. I kinda wish it had IS (image stabilization) but to be honest very seldom am I shooting that slow since it does go to 2.8 anyway. I'm very pleased with it and happy I don't have to switch lens as much now that I have that combo. Hindsight, although the 24-105 was not considered as sharp I think that range is ALOT nicer and would work perfect for my indoor shots where the 70mm side is not long enough.

    I can take a quick snap of the light setup I was messing around on white backdrop last night so all the lights are there, studio work is great when It all starts coming together but light and how light bounces etc is a challenge in itself. I enjoy it for sure. Of course everything is better after a little light room and Photoshop adjustment.

    BTW I'm very pleased that I went with the L lens as I fully intend to get a full frame next so that will REALLY open the door for a true 24mm lens. I thought the same, how do I spend a grand on a non L lens but the reviews on the one is so darn good I almost thought of doing it.

    Personally I'm staying L or Primes at a minimum as I HATE unsharp photos, I like to almost count eyelashes I like them so sharp.

    I took this school portrait of my daughter on a grey tiedie backdrop and a red gel, and the sharpness on metallic paper is unreal. Just remember shoot raw, and brush sharpen in the specific spots (eyebrows, eyes, and mouth).

    wow, here I go getting all off topic now lol.
