Monday evening we had picnic in Fairview park with my son and we met friends with amazing dog Fred.
While we were eating our family dog Gerina and Fred were playing together. The sun was going dawn and the light looked really interesting, but the long shadows were quite tricky. I really had to pay attention where everyone who was watching us stands so the shadows don’t fall into the picture.
Here are some lovely portraits of Fred:
They look quite tired, don’t they?
While the dogs were resting, they looked like they are having nice chat. I could not resist to make some pictures in black an white. I remember time when I was taking only black and white on on film and developed it myself in dark room.
Sometimes is good just forget about colors and enjoy the composition, the light and the moment captured in a photo.
Which photo you like the most? I choosed one photo as reference for my future painting. Can you guess which one? I will give you a little clue. It is the only picture that I fixed in photoshop. I cropped it and cleaned the shadows, so nothing disturb the image.
And here it is.
my favorite photo from this little photoshoot in black an white
If you would like to know how this image was created, here are few steps:
1. this is the original picture, you can see the tricky shadows everywhere
2. first cropping 3. black and white still with shadow 4. shadows gone
I hope one day you will come back to my blog and see my painting of this amazing dog.
Well painting takes much longer that taking photographs so its gonna be a while. You can have a look at the paintings that I have done so far since March, just click and see the section ” My paintings”.
