Tip of the Day – Unposed
Using your powers of observation during a shoot is so important. Always be watching what your doggy models are doing, how they are interacting with their owners and the world around them. Capturing spontaneous moments like this is one way to create variety within a session, rather than always having to “set up” shots.⠀
As we were walking up the path, Freya was running up ahead of us, then turning around to wait and watch us get closer. I make sure I was ready with the right camera settings and next time she did it, I was ready to crouch down and grab this shot. ⠀
Totally natural and unposed, I just love this kind of image!⠀
