Challenge: Home Sweet Home II (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: 2011
Camera: Nikon D90
Lens: Tamron AF 18-270mm F/3,5-6,3 Di II VC LD Aspherical [IF] macro for Nikon
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Date: Aug 10, 2011
Galleries: Humorous, Portraiture
Date Uploaded: Aug 13, 2011

Models: Tanisha Byrd and King

I decided to take the "creative" aspect to heart on this challenge and shoot the concept of "home", rather than look for a great angle on a physical place. So, clearly, this is not me, nor my - or anyone else's - home, house, driveway, etc. King is the most adorable lighting assistant I've ever had, and very helpful when I was setting up my lights. There's just something about a tiny creature at your feet, looking up at you with that face...

Gave this one a 10 and it was one of my faves. I had expected this one to finish in the top 3. It's a fantastic image.

This is a fascinating shot. There is a maniacal look on Mama though, and the Pomeranian seems a bit scared.

addendum: My in-challenge comment was a bit weird, but don't let my need to find quirkiness in shots fool you, this was expertly done, technically and artistically!

I really like the way they are staring.
The light is kind of snapshot but it is still a great picture

The look on the dog is just classic, thanks for making me laugh.

Nicely "staged" photo - perfect lighting, well focused...humorous. With a model release could do well for stock sales.

HAHAHAHA, the expression on the pup's face is priceless! He (or she) does indeed look very hungry. I also like the way you have flower on the table and on the woman's face. The ethnic clothes with the wooden bowl aslo makes the piece more interesting.
