Welcome to week 37 of our 52 Week Professional Pet Photography Blog Circle. This week’s topic is “night”.
I wasn’t quite sure how to tackle this week. If I owned a battery pack for my Alien Bee 800 lighting, I probably would have headed outdoors at night!
I decided to play with some studio set-up images and add a bit of a “night” theme. The following images that I used with the overlays are from a previous post: “Low Key“. I thought the first one would fit perfectly since Kota had her eyes closed and it looked like she was either sleeping or daydreaming. The first image I applied the overlay in photoshop and used “soft light”. I ended up liking this effect, rather than doing some “erasing” of the overlay over Kota.
In the second image, I added a moon overlay for a night time “look”. The image i used was in black and white, but I kept the overlay with a slight yellow tint.
