Sorry Cooper! Actually who knows maybe he liked being my first model? Cooper sat there calmly for me for about 15 min before getting a bit restless. It was in my benefit that he was scared to jump off the chair and run away. Or perhaps waking him up from his nap and putting him straight on the chair helped? Either way, he was a good dog ;)
Camera settings : 1/250th ISO 100 F2.8 shot on Canon 40D with L series 24-70 2.8 lens
After about 40 shots of slow focusing in the dim ambient light here are my favorites! The shot above is probably my favorite. I love the simplicity of his face with the monochrome color. You can appreciate the light and how it brings out the texture of his fur. The simple contrast from light to dark that follows the lines along his nose and ear create some interesting shape. Very artzy interpretation isn't it?
