These are a few I took last week. I found myself having to burn the backdrop in PS to clone out hair/dander that had gotten on the backdrop (particularly in the full length photo). How are other folks handling this? I hate losing the texture of the back-drop, but I cannot think of another alternative, outside of clone-stamping until my hands give out from carpel tunnel....

How bad is it in the originals?

Nice shots! Love his 'smile' in #2.

Hey Preston,

It is only a problem where I show the floor...and there it is really a serious issue. This poor guy had just been to the groomers in the last week, too. I am not at the computer where I keep the stuff, or I would post some samples...but they really are a pain in the hind-most-end.

Thanks to all for the comments. It was honestly a really easy shoot outside of the backdrop malfunction. LOL, dogs are SO EASY compared to shooting cats. This boy was VERY sweet, and entirely focused on momma.

I have a bunch of nice natural light shots of him in the environment (hanging on his bed) which are just adorable. It is a different look than I typically go for, but they are quite cute.

I was just asking because I treat small problems differently than bigger problems. Wasn't sure which we were talking about with your originals.

In any case, if it is white hair on black, if you haven't tried it...pull up an original, switch to LAB mode, highlight the Luminosity channel, and then go from there with your normal kind of fixes. Switch back to RGB to inspect results.

Hi Preston,

Thanks so much on the advice. I will try it tonight. I photographed a Neopolitan Mastiff last week and I have had similar problems with dander, skin, etc.

Hey Preston,

Can you give me a bit more instruction? I am having a hard time figuring out what you mean. I switched to lab mode, have been playing around with channels a and b, and I cannot seem to get satisfactory results.

Thanks
James

James,

I called it the Luminousity channel...Photoshop labels it the "Lightness" channel. Try masking the area you want to fix and run various blur and other filters, try cloning and healing, etc.
