Hello @kristiang45508825 , you have overexposed the puppy so that most details in his fur is lost. These are the bright areas.

Cute puppy; as Ralph said, every image is overexposed in the fur area, which will probably be an ongoing issue whenever you try to photograph him in bright sunlight. If you look at the Histogram on each of these images, you'll see the clipping indicator which denotes that there is no detail at all in some areas of the photo. Depending on your camera model, you may also be able to turn on the clipping indicator for your on-camera review. If I were shooting him, I would probably use the Exposure C...

Yeah, overexposed - the puppy that is. I guess you used the auto-exposure function on the camera. This has exposed for the overall photo, but due to the fact, the puppy has white fur, in bright sunlight, the camera hasn't compensated for the white fur. The light is just reflecting off it - like with snow! You need to expose for the fur, but better, not to photograph in bright sun! (The sun can also create harsh shadows, which you don't want for a puppy.)

If I were shooting him, I would probably use the Exposure Compensation control on my camera to intentionally underexpose to be sure his fur doesn't get blown out.
