Dog Portraits, Willow, Gypsy and Zac

Here is Zac’s dog portrait completed, I will obviously go back to add the background and add bits here and there but you can see it’s him now. I’m pleased with the likeness and it does help that digital cameras are now wonderful: unlimited pictures can be taken, settings can be changed and the not so good images can be deleted, you can click away until the perfect image is captured. Any pet owner knows their pet upside down and will know when they’ve got that perfect shot so really there is no excuse for a bad image these days which is just such good news for a pet portrait artist, it must have been hell years ago when cameras with films were in use and you had to wait for the photos to be developed, remember posting them to Truprint and waiting a couple of weeks to get them back! My mum used to wait until she had a batch and would send off a few films at a time which meant she’d even forgotten some photos being taken or that favourite shot turned out to be just the side of my sister’s head (mum is a terrible photographer even she has to admit that). Anyway I will be starting work on Gypsy very soon so do come back to check how things are going.


And here are a few very short videos of Cyril, you'll see he's a little unsteady on his feet still but he is just so cute!
