    Here's a couple of B/W shots I took with
    my Nikon D40. I was using a blue filter
    (80A) with no editing done.

    The dog isn't the only one in the mud.

    Adjust levels and contrast so it actually becomes a black and white photo.

    Hi there TekGino,
    Beautiful dog you have there :thumbup:

    I'm a dog owner myself with two Staffordshire Terriers that find themselves in my viewfinder all the time!, anyway after many shots and experimenting I found an article online about shooting pets which suggested coming down to their level

    I tried it right away and found the shots to be much better, different angles has already been mentioned.

    Nice pics
    Regards, Andy

    Thanks guys, I appreciate it! I think the blue
    filter had something to do with the contrast.
    I was going for a softer look, not typically seen
    in B&W photos. Usually B&W are very hard contrast,
    and rustic. I'm still experimenting with my new
    Nikon D40, and will be trying out different filters. :thumbup:

    I see what you mean about coming down to their level.
    I posted a different pic over in the beginers section. :thumbup:
