Butcher’s Pet Care Top Five Tips
for photographing dogs in
association with Nick Ridley
1. Dogs have a short attention span so it is
best to limit the photo sessions to about
fifteen minutes, give the dog a break and
then start again.
2. Try to avoid taking pictures during the
middle of a Summer's day, the light is too
harsh and will cast heavy shadows. A bright
overcast day will produce far better images.
3. Always get down to the dogs eye level and
use the eyes as the main focal point.
4. Be aware of the background. Try to find an
uncluttered area and watch out for lampposts
and trees growing out of the dogs head.
5. The welfare of the dog is the most
important thing. Know when they have had
enough and never subject them to harsh
handling just to get a photograph.
