Smile Introducing Caz

Hi there,
We're new to the Havanese Forum. Caz is 5 month old now. I apologize for the August photo, but I haven't had great success photographing him since he's often on the move and he's mostly black. Any tips for photographing black puppies?!

Hi Caz!

Sharon, I think I met you at Cecilia's house at a recent playdate - it is good to see you on the forum!

Scout is also black and another forum member told me she lightens her photos and then sharpens them up. I've been doing that with my "black dog" photos and it seems to help a lot. Other than that, photographing them in sunlight helps too.

We have quite a few excellent photographers (not me!) on the Forum, so hopefully you will get some really good tips!

Hi Sharon and ! Your little Caz is so very cute! I wish I had tips for you on how to take pictures of a dark dog, but I'm not sure what you could do other than lightening pictures like Jane suggested above... that and bribing your puppy to sit and stay with a treat... I've been known to resort to that once or twice.

Hi Sharon and Caz and to the forum.

I think that black dogs photograph great outdoors, especially on the grass, they just look so striking against the green grass background. By the way, Caz is an absolute doll.

I am from San Francisco too, where in the Bay Area are you?

Welcome Sharon and Caz......I have a black "granddog", Zoey, who is currently staying with us and getting pictures is tough, for sure! I guess, trying natural light through windows or outside in bright shade would be the best. Indoor direct flash photography doesn't seem to work to well. Glad to have you aboard!!
