I love black and white animal pictures too much. The black color of this dog was an incentive for me to use the B&W version of the image. Some photos have a better B&W style than color.
Shapes and lines in the b&w image are more precise than in the color version. Inadequate ambient light often results in an inappropriate White Balance. (Visit the Amazing Black And White Photos post to see more black and white photos. )
How to photograph moving animals?
Animals are constantly moving except when they are asleep. This issue causes the photos not to have a good composition. Or the image to be blurred due to the movement of the photographer’s hand.
In addition, adjusting the shutter speed, aperture size, and ISO level are other shooting problems that he intends to shoot fast.
One solution is to set the camera to animal shooting mode and take it out of manual mode. By doing this, two features are activated in the camera. First, the camera shoots repeatedly by pressing and holding the shutter button.
Numerous and frequent photos allow the photographer to choose the best one. Second, the stabilizer is activated, which may be either embedded in the camera or lens, depending on the brand.
The stabilizer prevents the image from blurring due to shaking. There is a stabilizer in my Olympus E 510 camera. The possibility that I can activate it while using any lens.
Both features, the shooting repeatedly and the stabilizer can be activated in manual mode.
Animals are often moving, and sometimes it is not possible to approach them. Therefore, adjusting the light and other parameters during shooting can be difficult.
In such a case, using the b&w version can be the solution. In the photo above, the dog’s skin color was almost black, which looked better with the b&w version. ( To read more about black and white photography, refer to the article on Black and White Photography Techniques. )
