Tuff

I've been asked by a good friend of mine to help him create some portraits of his dog Tuff. I will not go into details why, because it's not a happy story. Nonetheless we spent good 4 hours setting up different lights, different positions, and just plainly experimenting. We were setting up only off camera flashes with 1 white shoot through umbrella, 1 reflective silver umbrella, and a softbox. We ended up doing a lot more than just portraits of Tuff. In the end we had 4 people in the house, trying all kinds of different things. I found it very educational experience. First off I present Tuff himself. There are more shots of him after the break.
