This week, I’m presenting another Cardigan Welsh Corgi portrait, this one from quite a while back.
This photo of Demi was from a portrait session I did for a number of Cardigans during the Summer of 2005. Demi was an incredibly sweet dog, and she was the mother of Ransom our 2nd Cardigan, who is 13 years old at this time.
Unfortunately, Demi crossed the Rainbow Bridge during a Cesarean Section for her second litter. Demi’s owner and many of us were heartbroken by this tragic occurrence.
Those events still make this image bittersweet for me, as she was gone all too soon after this photo was taken.
This was a Canon EOS 1D Mk II using an EF 28-80mm f/4.5-6.3 lens and Speedlite 430 EX as a fill flash. The flash was intended purely to produce a catchlight, as I used a gold tone reflector to create the very warm light on Demi. The exposure settings were 1/1000 second at f/8 at 400 ISO.
