How important do you think the photos are to potential adopters who are scrolling through page after page of dogs looking for the one that will win their hearts? Do the photos of the dogs in your care really stand out and attract the attention of their new forever family? Or do they get lost in the pack?
If a lighter colored dog can prove difficult to photograph, how about a black dog? Black dogs often pose a real challenge to the point-and-click photographer. Their darker hair makes their features harder to distinguish, and their often shiny black coats can cause harsh glare from the camera flash. And just try to get a fast, decent photo of a black dog in the cramped often poorly lit quarters at the local impound or shelter. What’s a photographer to do?
So how do you take a photo that will capture your black dogs in all their glory and increase their chances of adoption? Our new photo tip page, “Photographing Black Dogs 101” will tell you how to improve your pictures using nothing more than a point-and-shoot camera, even in the most difficult conditions. These simple tips will help you turn the most camera shy and hard to photograph pooch into a puppy super model! So get out that camera with confidence, and get ready to get your dogs noticed.
