Back to both dogs. Hallelujah, this is almost exactly the shot I wanted! But I didn't get all of the little dog in the shot so I want to keep trying.

I'm aware of where all those shadows are, mine in particualr, and I don't much like it. I've got a telephoto lens so that I can back away from the dogs, but when I do, they either want to come over and see what I'm doing, or the owners move in closer to the dogs to manage them. So I have to be fairly close to direct the actors and actresses.

This isnt' a digital camera, so it isn't until the film is developed that I realize that the black dog's face is in its own black shadow, too.
