Fergus our Great Pyrenees at 85mm F/1.4 under natural light, Those aren’t soft boxes in his eyes just 2 large windows I’m fortunate to have in my basement office. At such a shallow depth of field it took me a few shots to get both eyes in sharp focus, and it’s critical for the eyes to be parallel to the sensor plane. I did apply a darkening vignette with a layer mask to eliminate a distracting background.

Being a dog lover and owner I’ve yet to post a single photo of our feline friends, but this one might have been well worth the wait.

Portrait of Fergus at about 5 months old, taken this past winter. He’s just over a year now and will soon start growing his heavy winter coat.

About 3 months sitting outside…
In his element at a nearby park, 4 months and 1 week at this point. Calling him a ‘giant’ may be a slight exaggeration. We met both his parents, so are well aware of his size potential, but nevertheless his growth rate is really something to experience. He has a very calm, easy going disposition, loves people and other dogs, and is also already exhibiting his guardian tendencies around the house.

Angus, really enjoying his winter walk. I think the photo’s speak for themselves, don’t forget to exercise your furry friend today.
Fergus at 4 months, and growing fast, he’s already the size of our 5 year old Yellow Lab. It’s easy to forget he is still a baby.
Fergus on his first off-leash experience at the local park. Here he is chasing after Angus (who is out of frame).

A brief break and time to get a portrait shot.
