They are a pair! The more relaxed was from PetSmart when I went to buy cat food. Was in a cage, older and had them thar eyes. The alert one was from a "Found Puppy" sign and was headed to pound. The relaxed Hollie, adopted Priss instantly and so the family was born. Super glad you like it, it IS them.

Behind The Lens

Location
This image was taken in the front room of my house. Their chair as they see it
Time
The afternoon light was shining just right for their portrait
Lighting
The Light is always important After all, Photo (light) Graph (writing). On a number of occasions I had noticed a confluence of the north light behind them, the west to our right, and the reflected south light as the main light. I think it is a good idea to always look at your home's lights AND remember what they look like and when. That way, some time some how, it will reach out through your subconsciousness and say, "Hey this should be there then!"
Equipment
I am a simple shooter, never a flash, never a filter and rarely a tripod. A Sony A300 with the kit lens
Inspiration
I call these furry ladies, "My Constant Companions". Retired we are together all the time. My friends. I like to take pictures of my friends 2 legs or 4
Editing
Extremely little was done in post. A little darkening of the borders was about all. Slight bright of the girl shadowed somewhat.
In my camera bag
As I said earlier, I am a simple shooter. I usually have my 2 Sony cameras, an A300 as backup and the camera I l-o-v-e Sony A7Mark2, a tripod just in case and a lens cap. If for an extended time, I carry 3 batteries and a charger (rarely)
Feedback
I see many pics from far off distant lands - I certainly have my share on VBug - but there is wonder abd Art right in your own house, yard, neighborhood, city. I hope you enjoy the personality and friendliness of My Constant Companions - Rick
