Indoor Doggies


The camera stays in my pocket when we’re out in the rain, so if I’m going to photograph Wally and LuLu it will have to be in the less favorable indoor setting.  I’m rarely happy with those pictures due to the eye shine from the flash.  For these photos I corrected the eye shine in Photoshop Elements by cloning an area of nose and dropping it into the eye.  I then cloned a shiny, glistening area of the nose or lip and positioned a tiny spot for the eye glint, using the original photo as a guide for size and placement.  It may not be perfect, but at least I was able to get some photos of them dry and still for a change.  I love my sweet Golden babies.  Can you tell?

  8. Those pictures are amazing. I can tell how much you love them by the shine on their coat and the look in their eyes. They are two of the best loved, best cared-for dogs in the world. I don't know you or them but I feel happy every time I see them.

  9. The photos of Wally and Lulu are gorgeous! I haven't a clue what you did but whatever it was, it worked for you. I have PSE, but I really haven't a clue how to really use it except for cropping and resizing photos for blog posts. One of these days I need to take a class and learn all that it can do.

  11. Beautiful dogs. I love the pictures you share with all of us. They make me happy just looking at them knowing they are so loved. Dogs are a great addition to our lives. We love our two "girls", too, and the joy they have brought to us. Continue to share their pictures.

    Wally and LuLu are the luckiest doggies in the world. From their expressions, I think they know it. It seems like they not only love you to bits, but their eyes show tenderness when looking at each other. Wouldn't it be a wonderful world if all dogs were as fortunate.

  17. Thesse are the most beautiful pictures you have shared yet! You can almost feel their beautiful fur. You need to submit these to a magazine or calendar company or somewhere! They need to be shared with everyone! They are truly the most beautiful "fur children" I have seen! I can see why you love them so much!

  20. Leslie, your photos always make me smile. Did you braid the hair on their ears? It looks ruffled like hair that's braided when wet. I never noticed the hair on their ears until now since you got close ups.

  30. I love their beautiful smiles Leslie, and you keep them groomed so well. I adore the second photo. Isn't it wonderful that we have a season that allows us to relax a little and just snuggle in with those we love? Enjoy.
