For Week 34 of professional pet photography blog circle Project 52 our theme was nighttime. I had the great idea of, once again, going to our favorite local park for my nighttime shoot with Mr. Bojangles, but things didn’t work out so well. First, I forgot my large reflector. Second, I was missing the trigger for my off camera flash, so couldn’t use my speedlight and large octa box as I had intended. Third, there was a deer in the trees to the side of where I wanted to take pictures and Mr. Bojangles was on high alert. So, we were off to a great start. I ended up having to use my speedlight on my camera with a small octa box modifier on it. You can see how his ears are back as he keeps listening to the deer in the bushes.
After I gave up on shooting on the path by the bridge in the woods, I decided to head over to the lake. When we arrived at the park, there was a family on the swings, but they were gone when we went back, which cut down on distractions for Mr. Bojangles. I decided to set up in the little gazebo at the lake and do our photo shoot there since there were no deer our new location.
