Learn by Doing Photography #21 – Pictures of Pets

This past weekend we had the privilege of watching our friends dog Roy for the weekend.  All four of us fell in love with this guy, he was perfect!  Kat wanted to introduce him to the entire neighborhood. So we walked and walked, we made the rounds and introduced our friends to our guest for the weekend.  We walked to the parks and played and walked to the store just to have a destination on our walk.

I had fun taking pictures of my kids and Roy as we walked. I practiced walking backwards while they walked towards me. That set of pictures didn’t really turn out. It’s hard to walk and photograph at the same time!

This week pick up your camera and take a picture of your sweet puppy, cat lizard or whoever your sweet love is! If you don’t currently have a pet, then call a friend and ask if you can take a picture of their pet!

Tips of photographing your pet:

1. Keep the eyes sharp.
2. If possible use natural light.
3. Capture the personality, if your dog sleeps all day capturing him yawning, if he runs all the time try to catch him in action.
4. Try different angles and techniques maybe you want to try a silhouette or a panning motion.
5. Think about your background, try to find something with out to many distractions.
6. Get in close – you hear that one all the time, but it’s true!
6. Be Patient.

Do you have a tip to add to the list? If so let me know, I would be happy to add it!
