Tip of the Day – Dealing with Hair Over Eyes
This daily tip series is brought to you by Barkelona – a pet photography retreat we ran near Barcelona, Spain in April 2016. You can watch the behind-the-scenes video and read raving reviews here.

Little dogs with deep set eyes and lots of hair are always a challenge to get the focus on the eyes! One way you can make life easier for yourself, is to face them upwards. Looking up usually means the hair moves away from their eyes, and automatically allows more light into their eyes to make focusing easier and catchlights appear.
