Wow. What a difference a few lights make. I did pick up some good ideas about things you can do when you don't have professional lights available, and I'll be trying to implement those over the coming weeks.
I found it interesting that Bob (of Top Dog Imaging in Lakeland) likes to shoot black (dogs) on black background and light (dogs) on white. Usually I do it the other way around, figuring that a dog stands out better when the background is the opposite color. But what a difference the lighting makes!
So--I need to get a light or two and figure out how to use them. :-) There's always something new to learn.
Hope you're having a great weekend!
