hello! this is my beautiful chocolate lab Ali. she's 4.

kindof odd how i set this up. it turned out JUST how i wanted it, and maybe it was plain luck, or maybe i'm getting better at setting up things with trial and error...but i had her sit still...and drool a little bit.. cause i wanted some drool on her whiskers for added detail, then i gave her a biscuit. then, i made her bark by telling her to speak (she learned this when she was a few months old ) and this spread the drool all over the place. then put another biscuit treat right by the lens, and voila! picture taken.
edited, and boom. done.

hope you like it. any critiques are welcome. i'm at work now, so i can't edit ...but i think i'm going to clone out the small catchlights, so there's only one set

let me know what you think. comment/suggestions are greatly appreciated and welcome. hope you enjoy.

She is beautiful! I wouldn't have cut off her head, but a sweet picture anyway. Mine is a black lab, and they are the best dogs ever.

Hello!

Ali is beautiful, indeed. But what I like the most, and IMO, what sets this apart from the typical pet portrait is the sweet, trusting expression on Ali's face. It says as much good things about you, the owner, as it says about her ... Ria
