Top Model by Johanne Brunet

Bobino is a Goldendoodle (golden retriever, black poodle mix) with a lot of presence, a real top model!

This shot was made last winter at the shelter, and I had added the textures (my own) at the time. Click here for more details on the textures used.

I decided to open it in Photoshop this morning, along with two other images from the same shooting. I cloned out the leash, and used the two headshots to make the portraits at the bottom.

This will be part of a new fancy greeting cards series for the shelter.

Nikon D7000, Nikkor AF 50mm f/1.8D
Focal length 50mm, ISO-200, 1/60 sec. @ f/4,5

Shot in aperture priority, against a white background, with my SB-600 and a silver lined umbrella to the dog’s left. Processed in Lightroom 3.3

All proceeds from the sales of this work will be donated to A.M.R. Animal Services and Boutique (sorry, French only)

    This fellow is so handsome, I sure hope he went to a good home! Greeting cards for the shelter is an awesome idea! I love this pose, such a great textured background, I would love it as wallpaper :-), and the photos under his paw is a clever touch!

  • Thank you Joanne! Sorry it took me so long to reply. I kind of lost control of my feed… LOL!

    Yes, he has been adopted last winter, quite soon after his photoshoot, in fact. The greeting cards sell like hot-dogs at the shelter. I make them from 4×6 prints and card stock from DeSerres. We have sold close to 100 since the end of May, and I just delivered a new order of 60 yesterday. We raised our prices a bit this time, but I don’t think it will affect the sales too much. :-) Of course, most of the proceeds from those sales go to the shelter.
