5. How To Get A Great Pet Photo
Follow some simple rules for a great photograph of your pet.
- Keep the background simple. The colors of the background should contrast with the color of the pet.
- Get your pet's attention for a great expression —make a noise or toss or squeak a toy. Be careful to keep these accessories out of the line of the camera lens.
- Enlist help —get someone else to toss toys, whistle, and help position the pet.
- Shoot photos outdoors. Natural lighting is always best.
- Get down to their level —position the camera at their height rather than shooting down from your standing position.
Or you can do it like I do.
- Get out the phone or camera.
- Choose a suitable background for the photo.
- Remove the puppy from the trash and brush off the coffee grounds.
- Mount the phone or camera on a tripod and check focus.
- Find the puppy and take the dirty sock from his mouth.
- Place the puppy in the pre-focused spot and return to the camera.
- Forget about that spot and crawl after the puppy.
- hold phone or camera with one hand and fend off the puppy with the other hand.
- Get a tissue and clean the nose print from the lens.
- Check to see who is calling you when you are busy.
- Put cat outside and put peroxide on the scratch on the puppy’s nose.
- Put magazine back on the coffee table.
- Try to get the puppy’s attention by squeaking a toy over your head.
- Replace your glasses and check camera for damage.
- Jump up in time to grab puppy and say, “No, outside! No, outside!”
- Call spouse to clean up mess.
- Fix a drink.
- Sit back in the Lazy Boy with drink and resolve to teach the puppy to “Sit” and “Stay” first thing in the morning. Call a professional photographer.
