Tip of the Day – Puppy playtime

Some of the most appealing shots can come not from set up, carefully posed images – but candids. Puppies especially display spontaneous, often hilarious natural behaviour, and capturing those moments in time can create some really memorable shots for their owners.
Since puppies can be easily distracted, use a long lens to give them space – the further you are from them – the less distracting you might be. This also allows you to get down low on their level and capture a glimpse into how they see the world.
