I recently released my second eBook through the Peachpit FuelBooks label. The book is about taking a portrait of your pet against a pure black background and lit with a single off camera flash. The book is available HERE for just $5.00.

To keep in practice and work with other dogs, I went over my friend’s house¬†armed with a black pop up backdrop, a Nikon SB-900, some Rogue FlashBender light modifiers, and a set of pocket wizard triggers. Worked like a charm.¬†puppyblog2


It took just a few minutes to set up the shot and with a few doggie treats and a little assistance from the dog owner, these shots were taken in a matter of minutes.I used the Nikon D4 and 70-200mm f/2.8 for these shots.
