Dogs are the absolute best photographic models around. Taking dog pictures requires no demands, no arguing, they are ever so beautiful and if it’s your pet dog they are always around. You can hone your photographic skills by taking dog pictures.
Here’s some ways you can take better dog pictures that looks like it belongs on a calendar.
- Get to the level of the dog. You need to be on level with your pooch in order to get that good well proportioned shot. Some of my best shots are even lower shooting up at the head of my chocolate lab. He’s looking out at something and I caught that majestic expression that you see so often in sporting dog shots. He was at the top of some stairs and I was below shooting up at him.
- Always focus on the eyes for your dog pictures. Just like a fashion model you want the eyes of the dog to be in sharp focus. It will draw your attention to the eyes and the most emotional expressions will be framed there.
