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.
