Family Pet Photography Tips
Position a point of interest slightly behind the camera and a little to one side, for example: something sparkly, something making an attractive noise, a family member who is especially loved by the pet.
Sometimes it’s easier to move yourself than to move the pet; by doing this you can often
avoid having your pet blend into background objects. For example, you don’t want a rhododendron
growing out of your puppy’s head.
If this is a recently adopted pet, be cautious. Some animals are afraid when you point a camera at them because they think you are going to throw it at them. Move slowly at first and see how the pet reacts. A rescued animal might need extra time to feel safe and secure in the new home.
If photographing outdoors on a sunny summer day, take photos early in the morning or early in the evening when the light is less intense; if indoors, it’s all right to use a flash; oddly enough, many animals are indifferent to it.
