Time for Friday Foto Fun! As you know I’m trying to teach my human to take better dog photos. Last week we looked at how to set a dog photo trap, and the week before that I talked about the most common mistakes in dog photography.
This week’s lesson is super easy. You don’t even have to leave bed!
It is really difficult to take good dog photos this time of year. It gets dark earlier in the evening, and sometimes its not very bright even during the days so the photos end up all blurred. If you have a fast dog like me who love to run and jump around, you’re really going to struggle to take good photos unless you have a super fast lens. That’s when today’s lesson comes in handy.
My humans always say that a tired dog is a good dog. I’m not exactly sure what they mean with that but if they’re talking about dog photography then yes they’re absolutely right. A sleepy dog moves around less and still looks super cute. Here’s what you need to do.
Sleepy Dog Photos:
1. Find a cozy spot for your dog to sleep where there’s plenty of natural day light. I chose my humans’ bed, as its the only place where we get morning sun in our house (and I get to snuggle up on the duvet!).
2. Wait for your dog to get comfortable. Watch out for cute yawns and stretches.
3. Shoot away! Its easier to take good photos if the light is not coming from behind the dog as your camera will probably struggle with the contrast. Move around and try different angles and close ups.
