Festive Wippet by phil_howcroft

Festive Wippet

Trying to be creative by getting the Christmas Tree and Ruby in one shot.

Harder than it looks when you are all your knees trying to get eye to camera contact with your whippet.

I used my flash with this and had to do some post processing to remove "blue eyee" on Ruby (Humans get Red eye's on Flash and Dogs get Blue Eyes) !

hope you like this :)
isn't she a treasure - a lovely Ruby Christmas portrait

I haven't seen Ruby in awhile. She has gotten quite gray around her muzzle, hasn't she?

"'Ears" to you on this shot..the ears do it, along with the eyes...!
December 18th, 2017  
a question..I've noticed your using your Canon on these, and not the Sony...what's your thinking on it?

Eye to camera contact - yes tell me about it! Had visions of 4 perfectly lined up attentive looking chickens for my shot...all I got was 4 heads down tails up eating their treats...but at least they were all in the shot given they'd kept escaping before that!!

Happy Christmas Ruby! You're lovely if not a little grey these days - but aren't we all!!!

Fav. This could be your best 100 Strangers portrait if Ruby were a human and a stranger to you. Love those eyes and ears.
