It’s Friday, so we have another in our weekly professional pet photography Project 52 blog circle series. This week it’s Week 16 and we had a super fun and creative, yet hard theme…fantasy. I racked my brain all week trying to figure out where to go around Cincinnati in order to create some fun fantasy images with Mr. Bojangles, but I ended up taking some photos in the studio. I also incorporated some stock photography (a photo you purchase from a stock photography website to use according to the license terms) and a vacation photo from a few year ago to create this week’s fantasy images. I had a lot of ideas swirling around in my head, but in the end, the first image was dictated by how well I could fit one of the pictures of Mr. Bojangles into a stock image.

So, first up in our fantasy week is that daring aviator extraordinaire, Captain Bojangles.

 This was a super fun image to create. I went through quite a few different stock images before I settled on this one of the plane. Originally, it was just surrounded by clouds, but I overlayed it on a photo I took a few years back in Monterey, CA. I also added a lot of textures to this image to give it a stormy, foggy look.

Because Mr. Bojangles appears so tiny in this image, I wanted to do another fun image where he was a little more visible. So, next, we have Mr. Bojangles, the rockstar dog.

He looks like he could give Bono a run for his money!

Even though this week ended up being a lot tougher than I thought it would be, I had fun creating these images. Let us know what you think in the comments. 

Now, to add more fantasy to your life, head over to Amyranth Pet Photography, servicing The North Carolina Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Cary, and Surrounding Areas), and then around the rest of this week’s blog circle until you end up back here.
