Tip of the Day – Heads up
I love a good “dog and owner” walking shot, but sometimes dogs that walk really calmly with their owner get that “hang dog” look about them, which doesn’t make for a great image.
To get expression while the dog is walking, I use something to get their attention and put their ears up – in Bendy’s case – a rather obnoxious sounding game caller.
The next image shows what it would have looked like without making the effort of getting Bendy’s attention. Big difference, right?
