Snap the Perfect Picture of Your Pet




With the summer months coming to a close,  be sure to enjoy the last few weeks of nice weather and longer days. It is the perfect time to take advantage of the opportunity to make a lasting memory with your pet; a “perfect” picture. Here are a few tips to help you capture the moment.

  • First and foremost, you know your pet best, (and what makes them special) focus on capturing that uniqueness.  Is it a special trick, place, or look in his eye? If it’s their laid back, lazy personality, catch them just chilling out.
  • Find an environment that they are comfortable in with natural daylight (a flash may spook some pets). Playing with them beforehand can also help them relax (bonus: a panting dog also looks like they are smiling)
  • Try approaching them for the most candid shots, do not call them or make them come to you. However, if you want to capture the element of “surprise” rattle a toy behind the camera or make a strange sound and it will look like they are looking directly into the camera.
  • Take as many shots as quickly as possible! Try different angles, for example; going down to their level to get their “perspective”.
  • Most importantly, HAVE PATIENCE! If you wait long enough, your pet will relax, and you will have the opportunity to click that great picture.
Enjoy the weather and your pet!
