Day 234 – 06/27/11 – The Fur Flies

For some reason the Puppy no longer likes having her picture taken.  I managed to make some portraits of her a few months ago by catching her in a moment of weakness.

I managed a few more this weekend by catching her while she was distracted by one of her favorite things – a brushing.  She’s been getting a lot of those lately, as she’s been shedding nonstop.

For the image of the day I was concerned with getting the lighting and composition I was after.  I also wanted to keep the visible flying fur to a moderate amount so as not to distract from the rest of the image.

Just for fun, here’s what her brushing really looked like 🙂

Now the fur's really flying.

    Good use of light Jim. I like how the sunlight reflect on your wife’s hair.

    Cute pup! Nice capture of her smile. My golden retriever is like a walking shedding machine. It doesn’t matter how much I brush him. I still find clumps of his fur all over the house.

  2. I like how you caught the loose hairs flying off into the light on that first one – such creative thinking!

  4. Ack, look at all the flying hair, nicely captured!

  5. Oooh! I hate when I go to pet a fluffy dog and it does this to me! Haha, love the capture though!
