I think I may of cracked, I have started setting stuff up to be photographed. First that white tiger model and now...

DOG SLIPPERS


Dogs 1 (70KB)
Dogs 2 (74KB)
Dogs 3 (50KB) - This is a larger version as the photo shown
Dogs 4 (63KB)

And for those who want to get an idea of how I set this up
The Photo Shoot Set (60KB)

And if you are asking yourself, "Hey, don't you have real dog?"
Well, I did ask Chuck if he would be interested, and this was Chuck's response (52KB)
I think he may be giving me a death stare, it's kind of hard to tell.
-----
You may also be asking, "Where is the 'other stuff' you mentioned in the title?"
Well, I haven't got anything planned as yet (since this is pretty much spontaneous), but if I do take any more photos of furry related silliness, I will be posting them here.
Do you like pillows? I do! ... because I'm only allowed soft things.

LOL Kasarn the photp fiend.. it is addicting.. I like to set my horses up and see what shots I can get with them. this is my latest
 My fursonas 3D figure

Husky dog figure

Its great fun setting things up and making them look real.. Try kitty litter on a tv tray outside its a great base material for animal figure shots when you dont have sand.

Those are pretty good Savaaha. The Husky looks better in my opinion, but then I am a dog person, so maybe I'm just being biased.
And since you're the only person who seems to poke around here, I thought I'd do a horse one next. And it took some digging, but I managed to find my sister's old horse model (after 12 years it still has the "Made in China" sticker under the base).



Horse 1 (96KB)
Horse 2 (113KB) - uncropped version of the image shown above
Horse 3 (90KB)
Horse 4 (115KB)
Horse 6 (92KB) - This is a recropped version of "Horse 5" (100KB)

These photo's were taken over a period of a few hours (I got distracted by my other sister), but I think they turned out well, mainly because I didn't have to move the horse at all.

I couldn't get a really good shot of the entire garden with the horse, but these will do.
The Garden 1 (130KB)
The Garden 2 (103KB) - the tripod is pointing down at the horse

I can't think of anything else, so enjoy '<img'>

Im very honored *Smiles* Your pics are pretty good. Photgraphing models ina natureal setting is extremely hard to do. Im still not the best at it. Ill scan up one of my old setups and post it after while.
  The biggest thing to remember is scale..Ive made little props out of rather mundane household things that worked fair in photography and you dont have to make a whole thing...I made saddles once from clippings from a tack magazine where only the leather strap that went around the barrel was real and it came out great.. Stuck the saddle on the side of the horse with tape..the saddle even only that looked like it was really there. its amazing what ones imagination can come up with.

Hear are the shots-- I tried to get some of my Border Collie model in competition herding a goat but it was too bright out. Ill try again this evening.

Great pics! I have whats left of a pair of those slippers, my youngest wolfer used to snuggle with them and chew on them when he was inside after his surgery. Whenever I let him in the first thing he runs for is whats left of "his" slippers  '<img'>
