Tip of the Day – Use tools
Don’t be afraid to use the right tools to get the job done!⠀
I really wanted to get Kentucky on the edge of the water for this shot, but I knew the temptation to dive into the dam would overcome any requests from his mum to “stay”. Rather than try it anyway, fail, and end up with a wet dog – we decided to put the leash on Kentucky before attempting this shot.⠀
So how did we get him looking out to the water? Another trick of the trade you’ll have to wait until you watch Episode 7 of RealShoots to see!⠀
