Butler was one of the two, yes two, winners from a draw that was held at the Alberta Kennel Club summer show (where my lovely tent was destroyed by a storm on the last evening, boo hoo). At 150 lbs he's the largest dog I've photographed in the studio (time for a bigger studio).
I've been asked before to reintroduce colour into a b&w images. Since I don't do that many I don't get asked that often. That being said, I had to give it a try with Butler. He's got the same colour as Siegfried, one of my daycare clients, and I thought I'd play around a bit to see what could be brought out.
Maybe I'm getting tired of the red wall. Maybe I just need to play around a little. Either way, here you go.
