An absolutely adorable Labrador Retriever puppy named Kaleah. The name means "Heartfelt" in Hawaiian, and that's certainly the case with this little one. An absolute sweetheart and adored by her owner! This little girl was amazing to work with, at 3 1/2 months, she was one of the best behaved little pups we've ever had in the studio, without a doubt!
Lighting is so critical to getting good portraits, but particularly for these little guys. Since their fur and color are so much a part of how we perceive them, it's absolutely necessary to show the color accurately and get the fur as sharp as can be done. Shot with a simple two light setup, a 750 w/s and an octo-box for fill, a small, 22" softbox to camera right about 6' off the ground for key light. The Canon 24-70 did its usual stellar job of rendering the textures and colors accurately and with unrivaled sharpness.

Location: 218 E. Grand Ave. Suite 3.
