    Our Greyhounds play a big part in our lives so it’s no surprise that we want greyt photographs of them. But we all know how hard it can be to capture the adorableness of our hounds, especially black ones. Pets, unlike humans, do not understand what we are trying to do and won’t just pose for the camera! Flashes look horrible. Natural lighting can be so dark that you can’t tell where your dog ends and the sofa begins. Keeping a few of the following tips in mind will help YOU help your pup to shine, using just your phone’s camera. #GreyhoundsofInstagram, here we come!
