Our newest addition

This is our newly #adopted #dog #Beethoven we just went and met today and brought home.  We are hoping he will integrate ok with our 4 other dogs. We also are planning to change his name because he doesn't even respond to his current name and we want to have a name for him he can associate with his new loving fresh start. So what are some #name #ideas. #suggestions foreverhome #fureverhome #adopt #home #dogfamily #doghome #pitbull #pitbullsofinstagram #pittylove #pitbulllove #instagood #instagramdogs #dogsofinstagram #dogstagram

Personally and professionally I enjoy photographing dogs. One challenge in photographing dogs can be in photographing dark colored dogs particularly all black dogs. I have had lots of experience photographing black dogs. I have had two different black dogs in my life. I have also photographed multiple black dogs at our local animal shelter. I have spent quite some time photographing them to various degrees of success. With lots of practice and experience I began to get good at creating nice photographs of all black dogs. The more control of the situation you have the better your results can be. However we do not always have as much control of the circumstances in which we photograph as we might like, particularly when photographing animals in a shelter setting. The biggest key to photographing black dogs is the light. If we are able to get the light right we are able to bring out the texture in a black dogs fur or the color in their eyes. We can bring out at least some element that shows their personality.

Before We Let You Go

This is a photo from the last full day I was able to spend at home with our dog Bella before we had to let her go to her new home.

Over the years this blog has undergone a few different iterations and at one point I decided to expand it to include posts outside the range of photography. I have decided to refocus this particular blog back to photography and items related to it. If you have enjoyed my writings on other topics you can find those topics by following me on Medium:
