It seems to me that I’m one big cliché these days (not that I mind!)…
Besides photographing cute newborn babies, I’ve also been shooting cute doggies and kitties for the local shelter!
However cliché it seems, I’m having fun, and it’s the main thing, no?
UPDATE : Cira has been adopted on February 3, less than two days after her picture went up on the shelter’s Facebook page. Some lady from Ste-Agathe in the Laurentians fell in love with her and drove 100 km to get her! I love happy endings!
This is Cira, a 3-year-old female Italian Greyhound. She was trembling all over, very shy, but so gentle and sweet!
She was found half-starving, roaming the streets in the town where I live, and she is only skin and bones, as you can see from the picture below.
The image I made for the shelter’s use, was similar to this, but with only one texture applied (to help camouflage the background) and the leash was still in. This version here has two of my textures, and I cloned out the leash in Photoshop.

This is my starting image:
