My parents' dog Patton is a fantastic black lab. He's so gentle and good with everyone. This is how he lies all the time. It was so sweet, I had to get a shot of it.
The lighting was pretty bad: a back lit black dog.... Had to bump up the ISO pretty significantly to accomodate that. I also remembered to shut down the aperture! See! I DID learn something last year! Got enough DOF for his whole face and paws but that meant I had to tripod myself, which wasn't that big a deal since I had to lay on the floor to get this shot anyway.
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
