How to take best photos of your pet.
Taking photos of your pet can be quite difficult. With a few simple tricks and camera settings it’s not impossible to capture amazing, professional-looking photos of your pets and be worthy of displaying in your home.
How do you get your pet to cooperate?
There are several tricks of the trade, but in the end it comes down to patience and being ready for that special momen. In a perfect world you’d have a friend to direct the animal to stare at you, but often your pet will just look elsewhere, so it helps if they can stand next to you or lead the animal’s vision to you. If you don’t have a helper, try using a squeaky toy app on your phone.. Its difficult holding the phone and the camera at the same time. Making an unusual noise will sometimes be enough to get your pet to look at you for an instant – be ready! You want to have your composition set and focus locked on their eyes.
You don’t need special equipment, but a speedlight or flash is a must if you’re indoors. Unless you have superb natural light, the flash will fill in the shadows and also freeze the subject. Never point your flash directly at the subject, not without some sort of diffuser.
