Had a couple of photos on print today: they were in a pet-related advertising paper that was published with the national, Norwegian newspaper Dagbladet.

Last Sunday I met up with model Thea and her dog Kilo for a photo shoot downtown. Here’s the main photo:

Thea & Kilo. Kilo is a mix between American Bulldog, Rottweiler, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and Sighthound.

To flash or not to flash?
I haven’t worked with dogs as models before, so this was the first time for me. Before leaving home I was afraid that a flash might scare the young dog – he’s only one year old – so I didn’t bring one. I could have needed a flash in the semi-poor lighting conditions downtown. I did bring a reflector though, but the artificial light wasn’t really strong enough to be reflected. Lesson learned? bring a flash next time.

Besides, Thea, the model and dog owner, assured me that Kilo wouldn’t be scared of the flash. Because of his young age Kilo was easily distracted and a flash would have helped to freeze the moment, eliminating blur.
I definitely learned a lot from this shoot.

Thanks Thea & Kilo!
