Pet dog picture - feedback requested
Jan 4, 2013

My sister wanted a canvas print of her dog so I thought I'd have a go at taking a decent picture for her and the image below is the best I could do.

I used a basic, cheap two light setup - one with a small softbox (to the right) and one with a shoot through brolly (to the left and higher up). The picture has been cropped and I have adjusted the tone curve to bring out a little detail in the eyes and nose. The camera is an EOS 30D, which at 8mp doesn't give the best resolution but I'm hoping to produce a 40 x 30cm print.

I'm not looking for my ego to be massaged, but I'd appreciate some constructive positive and negative feedback on not just lighting but also depth of field, framing etc. Many thanks.

Canon EOS 30D
