Tip of the Day – Convey personality

Tip of the Day – Convey personality

Capturing expression is SO important when photographing dogs.⠀

With Greyhounds especially, getting those ears up and forwards is always a challenge. Those aerodynamic little ears are designed to tuck back behind their heads for speed. Also due to their laid-back nature, Greyhound ears don’t often get much of a workout!⠀

It’s not all about the ears though – I always like to include some shots of the typical “ears back” look (like this one, which I love!) as long as they convey personality and is often the case, humour!

As you’ll see throughout this episode, we had to work super hard to get those ears up, using a range of techniques and sounds. ⠀
