Sampson doesn’t get featured in this series very often. Certainly less often than Lola and Elvis. It’s not that Sampson isn’t as cute, or doesn’t do photo-worthy things, it’s just that, well… He’s black…
If you have any experience of photographing dark things in sub par lighting you’ll know exactly what I mean. A good 95% of the time that I try to take a photograph of Sampson it ends up looking really, really terrible. And another 3% of the time they are, like this one, bearable. That leaves 2% of the pictures to actually be good. Doesn’t happen very often!
