Another shot from the film camera. Brooke got a new puppy. This thing is so tiny I was afraid I would step on him. There is something I like about the lighting here. it reminds me of old movie clips, or old movie star film shots.
I still know very little about this camera, my Mamyia 645 super. I've been shooting Fuji Pro 400ISO film, If anyone has any tips PLEASE let me know!

Hi Linda,
Sorry no tips to offer but you have the lighting on this shot spot on, the DoF is a little too shallow for my taste in this shot with the pups paw being slightly out of focus and a little noisy but as you say it looks old. Great shot and a nice moment caught. Best wishes

Hi, Linda,
this looks like a clip from a Shirley Temple movie. :)) The lighting and exposure are wonderful. Great tones and I LOVE the B&W. It has a dreamy quality to it I find very appealing. I love the close crop and how the two of their faces fill the frame. That's a sweet photo. Many thanks and warmest wishes,

Hola Linda
Un gran retrato de la niņa y el perro , edicion muy bien adaptada con un virado en negro , encuadre fantastico y luz bien empleada , una extraordinaria composicion muy agradable

buen dia
un saludo

Linda, you've got a good thing going, don't try to fix it with a different film. This portrait is ever so great! Beautiful composion and the lighting is superior. Only one thing I would change, and that is to clone out the shadow on the top of Brooke's nose. Otherwise A+1 Excellente!!

There's a real sense of the timeless classic in this shot Linda - and as you say, it has a feeling of those old 20s and 30s movies. It's a mix of the contrasty light and the softness of focus.

I must point out that while the dog's eyes are sharp, the girl's aren't quite as in focus. Not a major, but something to note. :)
