This summer I had a new background made for my outdoor dog photo sessions at the shelter. My outdoor options there are challenging because I have harsh mid morning sunlight with very little shade and the green bush I had been using as a background is now dying and not looking so good. So my brother, a very talented carpenter, put together a “fence” so I could produce a “dog in the back yard” kind of look. Here are a few samples of the new background. The fence took an afternoon to make and cost around $40.
