Tip of the Day – Become the Pawparazzi
From the archives – I’m digging up some old work to share! This photo is from July 2011 and has been re-edited.
To create variety in your pet photography sessions, especially when working with dogs off-lead, give them some “free time” to wander around, sniffing and exploring their surroundings. Tail them at a distance and shoot some candids with a long lens. I often do this at the start of a session so that when I do start asking for their attention, they are more likely to give it to me as there are fewer competing distractions.
