What a beauty!  I love black doodles... Heck, I love every color doodle!


Black dogs are difficult to photograph.  The best was is to use fill flash outdoors and to bounce your flash off the ceiling indoors.


The fill flash outdoors will provide texture to the coat and some highlights n the eyes.  Our doods often have heavy brows whic block the light from their eyes.  Fill flash counteracts that.  I always use fill flash with Holly, even though she is the typical buff colored dood. You can often use your built-in flash outdoors depending on our camera type.


Inside; the very best way to work with a single flash is to point it up and bounce ot off the ceiling.  Unfortunately, the built-in camera flash will not bounce.  The results from the built-in flash indoors are often the dreaded blue eye which is caused bythe flash being too close to the lens.  The light from the built-in flash hits the dog's retina and bounces back into the lens.  This is the same thing as "red eye" in people pictures.  Unfortunately the red eye removal option of your camera doesn't work as efficiently to remove/reduce the blue eye of dogs.


Using a hotshoe flash bounced off the ceiling is an efficient way of shooting flash for both people and dogs indoors.  It makes the light soft and natural.  The soft light will easily illuminate a black dog's coat and with people, you won't have the "deer in the headlights" look.

He is so cute!  I look at his photo all the time.  I wish he was closer to me:  I would put an application in.  I think my girl is needing a sibling!!  :-)

Such a doll.  He is just too cute.  His hair cut pictures are beautiful.

He is just adorable! I know the blacks are hard to photograph, but they are my absolute favorites.

He is truly beautiful.  Love the chin and chest against that beautiful black coat.

Kim, thats probably because he's always thinking about jumping at the camera lol. He is the hardest dog I've ever tried to photograph.

He always has such a serious expression.  Can't wait to see the first picture with him smiling!!

These pictures brought tears to my eyes.  He is the spitting image of our Mugsy who passed last year.  Cash is just adorable.
