Default Why?

Why is it so difficult to photograph a true likeness of a black poodle?

I think you've disproved your own theory about the difficulty of photographing black poodles; your pictures are wonderful!! And the red patterned sofa is the perfect background to showcase your little black beauty. Lola looks so angelic, she has the sweetest face!!

I will sympathize with you. I have a black poodle and it is tremendously difficult. If I get a good picture showing his coloring, the picture itself is crummy. If I get a good picture, his coloring is all wrong. He often looks like a blue standard poodle in pictures (the camera grays him out).
Things I have learned:

take the pic with a dark background- the camera gets confused with a light one and the dog looks like a black blob

turn the exposure up on the camera

use a flash indoors (this gets the best hair coloring, but then you get glowing eyes).

Make use of the tweeking software in the computer. Outlook has a simple one and Windows Live is also very simple to use. They don't do a lot of things like photoshop does, but you can usually almost correct the color by increasing the contrast and decreasing the brightness.

It's a problem to get a picture of my light colored poodle with my black one, too.

thanks for your nice comments
we are so in love with our little princess
poodles are the best dogs in the world
since we have aquired Miss Lola three friends also have them
interesting thing is my daughter's class mate (who is also 6)
owns Lola's sister, one trip to the school and her Mum said
"we MUST get one too"
she is called Peppa
also a little spoilt princess
