Tip of the Day – Natural action
Image 1 of 5 of Billy’s Session in the series Creating Variety in Your Dog Photography Sessions
Billy’s afternoon session took place at a seaside location with a jetty, small sandy beach and a rocky headland. We started off going for a walk around the rocky headland as it was completely in open shade – so there was nice soft even light but it was still fairly bright. To let Billy run off some steam, we let him off lead so he could scope out the path ahead of us. When he got far enough ahead, I had his owner call him back while I photographed him running towards us. This can be a nice easy way of obtaining a natural action shot in an outdoor setting.
