You’ve probably seen them- two small rainbow arcs on either side of the sun. These are called Sundogs. They almost always show in pairs and are recognizable because they are bright and colorful- like our imagery.
At SUNDOG Productions, we deeply enjoy playing with light. Photography is, after all, the capturing of light. We use the “natural light” of the setting, and modify or reflect it as necessary… and also love using advanced “strobist” techniques of adding light with off-camera flashes and strobes. This playful and creative use of light is (in part) what sets us, and our resulting images, apart and gives us our unique style and flavor.
In getting to know our clients, one thing to be discussed is how dramatic or natural the produced images should be. Some love the vibrant colors and fashion-style “pop”, while others prefer the natural-light look. We love them both! And we love the artistic and creative side of capturing just what our clients desire.
