My Chanel, a very willing model :-) I wanted to show the bond I have with my dogs. I hope I managed.

I shot this in studio, 1 light. I had a rectangular softbox (about 80 cm (32") behind us, shining straight at camera. I blocked most of it with black carton to get the black BG and left a strip on top and on either side for the light to come through (about 10 cm, maybe 15 (4"-5").

So incredibly beautiful and one of my favorites! What a brilliant idea to leave the strips on the side and at the top! It produced spectacular lighting! Huge congrats on a well deserved blue!
