Woes of a black dog

So ma's always accusin' me of bein' unphotogenic!! She whines, "It's hard to get a good pic of an all black dog." Maybe ma's just not so smart..., uh, let's just say her strength is not in flash photography and understanding lighting. Or better yet, let's blame her camera and presume her camera's flash is crappy. Better still, let's blame Dad fur droppin' and breakin' her newer point and shoot camera and she had to go back to usin' her older, bulkier camera.

Anywoof, after tryin' to take sum pics of me fur Howlloween ma has decided she is NOT goin' to use a flash fur me. Natural lighting only!

So yestfurday we were out doin' some yard work. I was helpin' by makin' ma take her much needed breaks by throwin' my ball fur me. Can't have the poor woman work her fingers to the bone! Anyhowl, ma noticed the sun was occasionally goin' behind the clouds. Great time fur pics!

So she went and got good ol' bulky camera and kept it close by fur the right time. Think we got a few good shots. Ma's pleased with them anywoof.

Your pictures are great. I should've guessed you had been playing fetch. Your tongue is hanging out just like mine does after a good game!

Hi Whitley & Sargent & Dutchess! Thanks fur barkin' in! Some of the most beautiful people don't necessarily translate well to photograph. Ma says I'm kinda like them. I MUST have the proper lighting!

You have some really nice pics...My whiteness sometimes gives the opposite effects, abut makes for frustrations on the pic taker's part, too.
I think as amateurs all the dogster pics are great!
Today's easy to use and 'smart' cameras make it a but easier...just need to be there at the right moment, BOL!
