Labs are among my favourite breeds of dogs. There's just something about their personality that makes me love them so much. We used to have a yellow lab named Jake and he was our baby before babies. So when I got a chance to photograph Onyx I took it! With his sleek coat and some studio lighting I knew I could make some amazing portraits of him.
Look at those eyes!
I wanted to give Onyx a very regal look so I went with dark backgrounds. I really wanted to highlight his dark coat.
But it couldn't be all serious. His owner Barb also brought over his "pet" elephant so I got some shots of them cuddling.
You made your owners happy, Onyx! Your portraits look great as wall art!
