As you can probably tell by my name, I am an artist, and I have been getting up the nerve to tackle a portrait of Cozi. All of that black fluff is quite intimidating!!!

Until then, I have been taking some photos of her. I can't believe she is almost 12 weeks old! Enjoy!

oh, ho! soooo adorable. I think your lighting is good on her. you haven't blown anything out and the blacks for the most part are maintaining detail in them. Nice window lighting.

Awww...almost as cute as mine ;) I love the black and white effect, will have to try that if I can get mine to sit still long enough, lol.

Cozy is adorable! My father in law is also an artist and when he first did a picture of Luna he was taken back about her deep black colour lol but he did a very cute one, it was a Christmas card for us, I will see if I can dig it out, scan it and show it to you :)

Any up to date photos of Cozi available? She's just too cute! I saw on another thread that she has Kiyara behind her. If all goes well, my pup will have a Kiyara father as well. I hope s/he's just as sweet looking as yours!

Hi Cdnjennga!

You are right- I have not posted photos in a while!

Here are some in the last couple of weeks. I will post more from this week too.

Oh my goodness, she's such a sweetie! All these puppies on the forum are killing me, they're just too cute. I love her sweet little face and the feet pic. Great shots. :)

Thank you!!! I always say she lies like a "Great dane" out on her side, totally asleep like a "big dog" on my kitchen floor while I cook. So I had to take pix of those cute puppy feet.

I actually was just trying out a new camera- its the Canon T1I digital SLR. So far I really like the manual capabilities...and I sure need them with a black dog!

artsycourtneysue, Amen on your comment about needing a better quality camera for shooting pics of black dogs, they are so hard to see the details of if using a lesser quality camera. Lighter dogs details show up so much nicer. Your pics look great.

AND Forgot to say your fur baby is just adorable. Really love the black/white/gray shot. All are fantastic pics, but that one just seemed to jump right out at me.

FUZBUTZ I'm glad you understand!!! My family dog was a bichon and I've had no trouble photographing her for years with a regular digital "point and shoot" camera, but with a black dog, its a whole new ballgame....

I'm actually learning a lot by using Cozi as a test subject. Thank you for your compliments. It's not easy, but having a camera with more manual settings makes a HUGE difference!
