    I normally take landscape photography shots or naturally lit objects so this is new to me.

    A family member has asked me to take some B&W photographs of her labradors to be printed.

    The sample of the photograph is below, would anybody give me some advice on achieving similar results? I'm thinking an off-camera diffused flash in a dark environment??

    To get this photo, you need a flash directed from top to bottom, about 45º, so that it does not illuminate the background. You can use a dark room or preferably a dull black fabric (not reflecting light). Set your camera to a closed shutter and a slightly faster speed. With this, there will be no time for the flash light to bounce on objects or on the background and be captured by the camera.
