One of my dog park friends is dog-sitting a black goldendoodle puppy, 14 weeks old, named Storm. She told me she hadn't been able to get a decent picture of her yet. I didn't think much of it. I get pictures of black dogs all the time. Just bring up the shadows a bit, no problem, right? Well...

Storm's eyes are so dark they might as well be black. Her coat has absolutely no other shade than black. Her curly hair reveals none of the shape beneath, with no gloss to define the contours of her face. Generally, in a portrait you want to draw the viewer's attention to the face, and everything about this dog works against that. Ugh.



She is pretty cute, though.



I had to go decompress on some photographer-friendly faces for a bit.

Having 3 black dogs myself, I've learned a few processing tricks that help.

Talking about black dogs and being hard to photograph... the new puppy contrasted against her older, much lighter, brother.

I tie their leashes together so running away would be a joint effort... it works sometimes.

There's only so much you can do before the processing starts drawing attention to itself instead of the subject, but I'm sure there are more tricks I could learn. I don't envy you, or @timb64 (with Wilf). My habit of shooting against the light was not helping. I'll try for more direct lighting next time, because the snow trick is not gonna work here, either.

I love these! So cheerful, and the flash really takes it to the next level.

Only a month ago, Ludo (the malamute) was a good bit smaller than Angela. Now they're the same weight, though Ludo occupies a lot more space with all that fluff.
