Dogs, Christmas, and Photoshop

Services for Real Estate Pros with StoneHome Photo & Video

When I'm not shooting properties or head shots, I like to take photos of dogs. Here are a couple I shot some time ago, added a santa hat and snow-flake border in photoshop.These are christmas cards going out to family. Hope you enjoy them. If anyone is interested, I can sell you printed cards and can customize them with text, etc.

The Jack-Russel was actually sitting by her own volition on this bench in a closed hair salon on Yonge street. I'm not kidding--she was seated by her self and, what's more, is that she didn't even shift positions. Even after 5 minutes of photographing and just staring in awe, she stayed put. Priceless.

Christmas dog


This guy was a funny bouncy one...much happier than his expression implies. The cone was to keep him from licking some post-surgery wound.

Those are great photos! You really captured the dogs very well, and the santa hats look real, not photoshop'd. Good work.

Great shot and very funny too.

This morning I was looking for Terry's joke, but he was serious in his posts. So, thanks for the morning smile.

Thanks Michael. I'm quite an amateur at photoshop so the comment is much appreciated.

Brian: Glad you like the shots. Probably the only thing that puts a smile on my face every day is coming across these dogs during my walks. :)
