Tips for photographing pets

Some tips and suggestions to help you capture a great photo of your pet that I can use for a painting.

Get on their level. Getting on the floor and at the same level as your pet is a great way to capture some dramatic, yet natural shots. We all know how a dog looks when viewed from above, this is the way we always see them. For a better result, show us the way they see the world! Sit on the floor or lie on your belly and remember to shoot from his eye level or below. 

Take clear and sharp photos. To help reduce camera shake, take a deep breath before you take the shot. 

Aim for the eyes. In your pets quiet moments, after eating or bedtime for example, move in close for some dramatic and expressive shots. 

Catch your pet's character. It’s a good idea to photograph pets in their preferred spots or enjoying a much-loved pastime such snoozing on the porch or catching a Frisbee. If you have a lazy cat, show him yawning, if your dog is of a playful type, show him in action performing his favourite trick! 

Avoid flash if possible. Flash can scare your pet or make them nervous and it can lead to red eyes.

Go macro. Take close up shots! Experiment, take your time and enjoy the session. Try different approaches, angles and compositions. Shoot a lot! 

Surprise them & get some help.  One of the most difficult things is to let your pet hold still. An easy trick is to let him play quietly and, once you have everything ready, let someone call for him or whistle. This will surprise him and caught his attention and you will have a few seconds to capture him in a nice and alert posture. 

Make sure you use the highest resolution possible on your camera. 

Take many shots, and amongst them could be a winning image! 

MK Gallery can connect you with a local photographer should you need help taking a good photo of your pet.
