Black dogs on a Black Friday make for a great promotion for the shelter. I got lucky this week and got a beautiful cloudy day to photograph Rosey. She is a rambunctious mostly black mix breed dog. With a little walking around, she settled down enough to get a few shots in.
The before and after processing in lightroom quick look for reference cause we all need extra attention for black animals. For black dogs I always try to give just a nudge to the blue temp, in this case only -2. It makes a world of difference. The contrast is a matter of taste, I like the sleeker look in Rosey’s case but some may want to tone that back a bit. I also ratchet down the highlights. It helps bring out the details.
