Maltese Portrait-Photo a Day #7

Good friends of ours have two dogs Bella and Mitzy, the Maltese sisters. Whenever we go over for a visit my daughter wants to play with them. So today we got to play with the dogs, so I grabbed a few pics along the way.

Post processing was handled in Aperture(Mac App Link) as I was pleased with its B&W conversion. Here’s the saved jpg from the RAW file:

I liked the lighting but wanted to clean it up a bit so here’s a screenshot of my saved edits in Aperture:

As you’ll notice I did do a bit of dodging to her face and i burned the background just a bit as well in addition to the vignette, sorry I haven’t figured out to show burning and dodging in a still image. Maybe someday I’ll get brave enough to do a video screen capture.

Here are some other captures from today as well:
