42nd Street Photo’s Pet Photography TipsPosted on January 28th, 2010
Pet Photography can be tricky. If you are not careful you can cause pets to look blurry, angry or frightened. We are going to give a few tips that will help capture your pets personality.
- Avoid using a camera’s flash, this can effect your pet’s eyes and make them look red. Light can make or break the photos of your pet.
- Use outside light if possible. If you can go outside then out your pet next to a window.
- Lie on the floor and put your pet on a higher surface for an original perspective. Don’t look down at your pet. Try not to take shots where your pet is looking directly in the camera.
- Try to capture your pet at its best moments. Try to capture most characteristic expression and pose of your pet.
- Keep the picture simple. Your pet needs to be the focus of the picture.
- Fill the frame with your pet. Very little background is a good effect.
- Shoot close-ups of your pet’s face.
- Be patient. Don’t get upset, sometimes these things take time. You might want to bring out your pet’s favorite toy or treat if that gets his attention.
We hope these few tips help when taken photos of your pet.
