Pet Photography - Theme 'Black and White'

June 01, 2018  •  8 Comments

This week's pet photography theme is black and white.  I personally think pets (cats, dogs, etc) that have strong contrast in their fur look the best in black and white photographs.  Most often I find that the brown and red color dogs become gray and don't have the striking contrast in their fur.  It's been raining here a lot and opportunities for going out and photographing dogs has been severely limited - in fact, I was having to time dog walks based on the weather so it was a bit trying!

Here's a couple of kitty photographs taken inside.  The first one the kitty is sitting inside on the window sill with bright light coming in the window.

This kitty is a solid gray beauty who loves to run out the door when he is suppose to be an 'indoor cat'. Does he look a little annoyed?

Next up, a senior boxer with lots of character. One of his favorite things to do is lay down with his head between front paws.

Sometimes he perks up, just a matter of saying the right words!

For more pet photographers sharing their take on this theme, head over to visit Nancy E Kieffer  serving Central New York, the Adirondacks and beyond and then head around the rest of the blog circle.

I love the graphic composition of the cat image! Very bold. And I love me some gray muzzle. Lovely images!
Nothing like a senior! Love the boxer close up image. These are beautiful!

I wonder what the words were to perk up the He’s got a fantastic face. So full of character! I also love the cat image at the start. Would love to be able to get one of my cats like that one day.
Love senior faces. Great subjects.
I love the first cat image. That's a great B&W image.
