Fergus portrait, natural light

_E6A7134-Edit

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.

My puppy ‘Fergus’ is becoming a giant!

Fergus the Great Pyrenees at about 10 weeks, a few days after we got him.

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.

Don’t forget to walk your dog today, it makes them so happy!
