Black & White Dogs
This one was a challenge: to get a black dog and a white dog in the same black & white photo and to get both of them to 'stand out' from the background. I used two methods. One digital, and one physical. To be fair, it was the dog who did the physical part... The black dog is a black labradoodle; always a challenge to photograph well. The 'white' dog is a golden retriever, although more cream coloured than golden. The digital alterations were done using Topaz Glow to exagerate the texture of the fur, plus the background was altered and brightened. The physical part was not being able to stop the darned retriever from digging out a rabbit burrow! The resultant mud all over her head added to the contrast!
