Today I learned that dinnertime is not the best time to try to teach your dog to model. I was trying to replicate a cool shot I saw in a dog food commercial that showed the dog bowl and dog muzzle from a direct overhead vantage point. Alas, my dog did not want to lay his head down next to his bowl - he wanted to stick it in the bowl and have his dinner! All I managed to get in the frame was an extremely reluctant paw.
I was happy with how beautiful and clear the food (and paw) showed up. I used my SB-900 on camera bounced straight up.
Then I got an extremely sad face and gave up.
