I recently enjoyed photographing Zoey the dog in the home of Kathy and Steve. It is especially fun to photograph people in their own home. And Zoey is a cute dog that revealed some fun personality. I felt that she deserved some special attention, and so I created this computer-enhanced, graphically designed painting of Zoey with her owners in the background. Scroll to the next image to see the original photograph. I like this painting and will be showcasing more of what I can do in future days and weeks.
So which do you like better, the painting or the photograph?
I am a firm believer that everyone should have some great photography of themselves (OK, I may have a selfish motive in saying that but it is still true). Kathy and Steve were willing to take that step. This is not a candid snapshot; it is a carefully crafted portrait that complements their relationship, their personality, and style.
The following are a few more of my favorite images from my time with Kathy, Steve, and Zoey.
