I love dogs. My husband and I are dog photographers for a living. Our other love is wildlife - which is challenging, to say the least We have amazing on site lighting/equipment and your image shows real knowledge /skill and how to make a very saleable image. All power to your elbow ;)

Thank you very much for this comment! I think many people are not able to understand how much hard is take photos like these, so thank you! About saleable images: i'm trying to understand if there is a channel that allow me to sell them with a right value because for me each photo is unique :)))

Behind The Lens

Location

Well, i got it in last autumn where i live on hill in Italy. The sun was a little veiled....and i thought that it was perfect for a photo

Time

I remember very well....it was afternoon and the sun was quite veiled...all other things were perfect!

Lighting

The light in this photo rules! There is only a way to tkae te dog in this way ant the sun shouldn't shining if you want to save whites! :)

Equipment

I used a Nikon D4 with a Nikon 70-200 f/2,8 lied down on the filed! No flash and no tripods! :)

Inspiration

all dogs inspire me eachtime! I love them and i always get a deep feeling with them!

Editing

Yes, i usually post process all my photos...and this one too. I used PS to save the shadow side of the dog and to recover the sun!

In my camera bag

I usually have two bodies....The Nikon D4 and the D700. Then i have some lens....but the ones i prefer are the Nikon 300mm f/2m8 and the Nikon 70-200mm f/2,8

Feedback

Try to know the dogs better. Try to undesrstand their movements! Try to get a feeling with them...then start to shot :)
