Dog Portraits, Willow, Gypsy and Zac



with black background


with white background

A little update for Willow, Gypsy and Zac's dog portraits. I've added some more of the grape vine (it grows up the outside wall of our house) on the reverse side of the drafting film. Using the reverse side of the film makes the background look subdued and almost out of focus which is ideal. To show the dogs in more detail I added black card behind the film, this has enhanced the white of Gypsy and Zac's fur, although the light has caught it a little. At last you can see Gypsy's feet in detail. I'm not sure which I will eventually use, the black does seem to show the dogs up better but until it is completed, I really am not sure, what do you think?
