Aslan - King of My Living Room

I was messing around with a vintage Nikon SB-26 Speedlight that I bought about a year ago on eBay. I got it after falling in love with the tips and techniques of David Hobby and his blog, strobist. I thought it would be fun to shoot a couple of pix of my dog Aslan. With my good friend Marty acting as a light stand, we were able to capture a rather candid moment of Aslan in the living room.

I have had Aslan for almost a year, after my girlfriend, Laurie, wanted me to foster him. The plan was that he would eventually be put up for adoption. Well needless to say, that never happened. He was a shelter dog on the verge of being put down, but instead he ended up with me.

Please check out you local shelter for other great dogs like Aslan. You might just save a life.
