Pets fill very quickly their place in our hearts and families and we enjoy having their pictures framed on our desk or wall! However taking pictures of your best friend is not always easy. Pets, unlike humans, do not understand what we are trying to do and won’t just pose for the camera.
So, when it comes to taking pet photos, pick photographer that has Pet photoshoot experience, like Robbin Manuel.
Here are a few tips I offer when I come to take portraits of your pet:
1. It’s best if I come to them. It is very important that you pet feels comfortable and at ease, so instead of forcing him to come to me I go to them. Most important is to get down to their level; We all know how a dog looks when viewed from above, this is the way we always see them. Show us the way they see world! So I will sit on the floor or lie on my belly to shoot from their eye level or below.
2. Pet photography requires a lot of patience. No matter how excited your furry friend is, if you are patient enough, they will end up relaxing and I will have the opportunity to get a decent shot.
