    Welcome back!

    Is Mark-60, like, a professional photog or something?

    Because if so, I'd like to know a quick, easy, neat way of doing a simple backdrop for photos of my dog.
    I need for when I make Ella model my "Collars for Causes" collars. :)

    I'm tired of doing generic snap shots of her in them.

    Lord no! I'm not a pro photographer by any means. It's just a hobby. What kind of back drop are you looking to use? Personally, I like shooting outdoors and using the natural background. You do have to really pay attention to your background when shooting like this though. A lens with a large aperture will help with this. A wide open aperture (at least f4) will give you a thin Depth of field and create a nice smooth "Bokeh" background.

    The above image was shot at f2.8 and the background was my deck/bushes.

    Well, the collars I put her in are demo collars for our Collars for Causes, and I do not really want her to go outside in them as I plan to try and sell them at a local event in May (for a discounted price since I put them on Ella temporarily).
    I was looking more for an inside back drop.

    hehehe, I know about bokeh, and how cool it is as a background.
    These pics were just shot messing around when my friend came to visit me, but the background is so awesomely bokehed that I thought I'd share.

    We were outside and the sun was setting so I used my flash a little bit.
    Both were shot at f5.
