Obtaining Prints From Your Images
My images are often heavily processed using Adobe Lightroom 5.6 from raw image files. They are cropped with a preference for a square aspect ratio for online posting, although the pup's location in the set and specific pose influences whether the crop must change. In some cases, distracting elements must be removed where the Pug wandered too close to a light stand or too many people and animals are posing in a small set. Such processing takes time for each image.
Printing these images requires cropping to a size specific aspect ratio -- 4x6, 5x7, 8x10, 8x8 etc -- and thus requires further effort on my part. Further, the image must be sharpened and rendered for paper -- either gloss or matt -- in order to get the best results. If the Pug was too close to the background, then it is heavily cropped and must be processed further for enlargement.
As this shoot is in support a charity, I will charge only for costs and to cover some of my time for prints, with no significant profit built in. Note that the value you receive from this is considerable, since custom photography and prints at size 8x10 for example typically run at or above $50 per print, and that after a significant sitting fee. I apologize to those people who like to just print everything themselves, but I believe in the highest quality that can be achieved from my captures and so I am unable to make the raw files available in printable sizes.
Viewing and Saving Your Images
All images have now been posted!
You may view your images in a slide show by clicking on the first of your series and then clicking on the left or right sides of the image to navigate back and forth.
Saving an image to your hard drive is done inside the slide show to save the larger image. Simply right click on an image, click "save as..." and then browse to a location in your hard drive. Do this for each image for which you would like a permanent copy.
Depending on the level of cooperation of your Pug, there are a few to dozens of images in your section of the gallery. I chose to keep as many poses as were of adequate quality, and in some cases I kept a pose that was unique even if it had some minor blur. Think of these images as "proofs."
