Tip of the Day – Perfectly framed
Especially when shooting in urban areas, use your surroundings to frame and feature dog and owner relationships. This beautiful church doorway creates the perfect frame for Hugo the Great Dane and his mum Sarah, and their elegant poses help to accentuate that classy feel. Finally, the connection between them created through touch and line of sight finish the shot beautifully.
This is one of my all time favourite dog and owner shots I’ve taken. Partly due perhaps to the fact that it reminds me of my gorgeous gal, Luna.
