Once upon a time there was an intrepid photographer who had a belief that if he just bought the next new piece of gear, his pictures would be a good as the guys on Garage Glamour. After a few piece of gear didn’t accomplish this he learned better.
But that’s not really the point of this story. Fluffy the eyeless dog is.
So our intrepid photographer reclaimed much of the room over his garage to be a studio (complete with two trips to Home Depot) and ordered an Alien Bee 800 with a large soft box. When he received this wonderful new light he set it up and looked for something to shoot. Unfortunately, the photographer’s lady was off teaching dumb ass college freshmen how to write a critical research paper on Frankenstein.
So he ended up recruiting his friend Fluffy the Eyeless dog. Below is his first picture with his new light.
(As an aside the photographer owns a wonderful beagle puppy named Serenity who loves stuffed animals. And the first thing she does is chew the eye off. Thus fluffy’s fate.)
Here’s a picture of the studio.
He did later make his son sit and get his picture taken, but we’ll leave that for later. And his lady will be a subject this weekend. Especially after another trip to Home Depot for bathroom flooring…
