Spectral Hound 9/52

This is always a fun shoot to do.

 

The boys enjoy the action and the Easy Cookies, and I think the effect is cool!

 

This is 1.6s exposure @ f/7.1 with rear flash. The CFL behind the umbrella illuminates for the duration of the exposure with the flash "freezing" Toby at the end.

 

I worked with Toby off and on all day to teach "spin" for today's shoot.

 

It's an easy trick to teach, and he's a quick study, the repetition mostly about me being able to cue the trick without getting in the shot.

 

Truth in advertising: Yes, I did have to clone a few bits of me out. He still needs a big arm signal to complete the turn.

 

Next time... we'll do better next time.

 

Such a smart boy!

 

Unlike Henry (who hops) Toby spins by twisting. So, no head bobs, but you get a swish instead.
