What could be cuter than a Pug? {Long Island Dog Photographer]

Meet Kaworu, one sweet puppy!  He is named for a Japanese fictional character.  He was so much fun and a bit of a challenge to photograph.  Black dogs are not the easiest to photograph but they also provide a great opportunity to create spectacular images for the same reason.  Of course the other challenge is Kawrou is a puppy, and like 2 year old children, like to move around almost continuously!

Michelle and I were fortunate enough to experience a wonderful 3 day workshop by the great Rachel Hale.   We knew that a black pug puppy was booked for the studio this week so we were delighted that one of the demonstrations she did was with a black pug puppy on a black background.  This is not something we had done before so we were excited to give it a try with Kaworu.  We are delighted with the results!
