Sunset Background

Sunset Background

Not saying this is a great background choice, but I took one of Rose Atkinson's gorgeous sunset pictures, turned it upside down and used it for this background. By the way, Debrah H. Muska, in her excellent book, Pet and Animal Photography" would disapprove of this pose since Ricky's private parts are showing. You can tell he's thrilled to be posing, can't you? (A reluctant Ricky was posed against a white background and extracted using a technique explained in Fabian's extraction tutorial available from his website: )

You have to change their angle to the camera so that their front legs hide the offending protusion.

Very nice extraction Isabel! Yes, Ricky does not look like he is enjoying posing. Just how are you supposed to photograph them so there ....umm......don't show?
