Out of over 1000 images sent to us, there were only 2 or 3 dog portraits! I felt that they definitely needed a spot in our contest, and I found this one to be totally adorable. Here are the details from the creator himself, Carmine Sarazen.

“Gear used:
Rebel T2i
Canon 50mm 1.4
1 LP160
2 YN560

Photographing dogs is the toughest thing ever, tougher than children. They have no attention span. But if you can finesse them a bit, you can get a memorable shot. I shot this with a couple of speed lights, a convertible umbrella, and two grid spots for rim. I caught this choc lab mid tongue action.”
