We've all been there, right black animal lovers? Our pets are doing something super cute and we whip out our phone to capture the moment. You end up with a blurry, fuzzy blob with mushy fur. You don't even recognize your beloved animal. Happens to me, too, when I use a phone. Let's face it, it's just not the right tool for the job.

Black animals almost always need a little extra burst of light to get the details of their fur for that perfect photograph. I'm not talking about your camera's flash either. Sometimes you can catch it with some sun. Sometimes not. Black animals need directional light to bring out the highlights and texture of their beautiful coats. And that I can do for you.
