If you’ve ever tried to shoot a black dog, you know the pain:

*Cue whiny voice*

“There’s too much contrast.”

“Maybe my white balance is off. My ISO is off too. I need a new lens.”

“Oh! Got a good one! Oh, no. He’s blurry.”

“Time to upgrade to an EOS-1D. Then it will come out for sure.”

“DAMMIT, DOG! STOP MOVING!”

All of these happened. But I realized that putting Toby in black and white helped to bring out the detail in his fur. It also helped to have his favorite frisbee to keep him occupied.

Mission accomplished.
