Cleopatra – 3 month old Pug Puppy sitting in a vase full of warm milk.
With a name like Cleopatra it seemed only right that this little pug puppy should be photographed bathing in a bath of warm milk……well warm water with a dash of milk to give it the colour. Cleopatra was the sweetest and calmest pug pup Rachael has had the pleasure of photographing; at first she wasn’t sure about sitting in Rachael’s mum’s ‘fruit salad’ bowl, but once the warm milky water was added, Cleopatra settled down and relaxed, leaning on the edge of the bowl almost as if she was thoroughly enjoying the sensation of ‘bathing in milk’. Cleo’s bath only lasted 5 minutes at the most, then she was given a warm rinse off and a towel dry and was soon racing around the studio doing the usual doggy, after bath, zoomies.
This image of Cleopatra was published in Rachael’s book 101 Salivations: For the Love of Dogs
Cleopatra was photographed by Rachael using her 4x5 inch Toyo View Camera with Portra 160 Film, against a paper backdrop, using a large Octo Elinchrom Softbox Studio Flash.
* This image is from Rachael’s earlier work, which were all photographed using a Large Format 4x5 inch Film Camera, and occasionally a 8x10 inch Polaroid Camera. Rachael used a very shallow depth of field when photographing with film cameras, this gives these images a softer more painterly quality when printed, the prints still look stunning in all sizes and make magnificent Art pieces, they just don’t appear quite as crisp as an image created on a digital camera.
Rachael recommends this image to be framed using a White, Oak or Black Wood Frame with or without a white border, or as a canvas with or without a White, Oak or Black Wood float frame surround.
Fine Art Prints are available in five different sizes; 10x12, 12x16, 16x20, 24x30 and 30x40 inches
We have a collection of beautifully crafted Wood Box frames available in 5 different colour ways to choose from for framing your Fine Art Prints: Black, White, White Wash, Grey and Dark Wood.
Fine Art Prints can be framed full bleed, or you can choose the option to have a white border around your image to separate the image from the frame. If you choose to have a border, the image size will be smaller; for example, if you choose a 10x12 inch print with a border, your final product size will be 10x12 inch but your image size will be closer to 8x10 inches. See sample photo.
