I'm a sucker for little animals. As a kid we had a cat named Molly, and even though we were buddies, I did spend a fair bit of time terrorizing her. As an adult my wife gave me a Miniature Pincher named Bosco-Pete and soon to follow was his "little brother" Oliver, another min-pin. As much as people peg me for a bigger-dog-guy (which people would be correct in guessing, I'm a pretty big guy), I dig the little one's. I've written about her in the past but our current is a three legged rescued Chihuahua named Caroline. She's a piece of work, and totally beloved by everyone in our family. That said, this post is more about what directional light does for portraits than Caroline. It simply does wonders, be it dog or person, and either way, I hope you enjoy. Till next time.
