Project 50/50 - Week 12


Rex is 11 years old. We rescued him in the Detroit area when he was about a year-old. We found him wandering the streets with out a collar and malnurished. His previous owners beat him, and 10 years later he still cringes if you raise your voice. In the end, he has been the best dog a family could ask for... Separation anxiety and all.


He sometimes helps me calibrate the lighting in my home studio in exchange for a raw hide treat. That seems fair to me, but this time I took a little too long so he was close to falling asleep.


I made this photo with a Canon 7d, 15-85 lens, and 4 YN-560's. There are two lights in the back hitting the white seamless, and one umbrella high and one beauty dish low. He's laying on a smooth white panel board to add some reflection.
