A couple of weeks ago while taking dog photos at Longmont Humane Society, I was faced with super bright sunlight or a bush that was partially dead. So I looked around for a new background and found that the sidewalk and wall of the building would make a simple and neutral gray background. I like the effect and the dogs really pop out. As an added benefit, it was close to the dog kennels so I was able to take more dog photos than normal in a short period of time. Dog photography can be challenging but mostly a lot of fun and photographing shelter dogs to help them find homes is super rewarding.
