Most dogs do not want to sit still and have a keen sense of good smells, for they need to sniff every few feet in all other directions. Pet photography requires a lot of patience. If you’re even-tempered enough, they will end up by simmering down and you will have the circumstance to capture that amazing moment in your dog’s photograph. So helpful in understanding a dog sensitive environment around them and most especially – a photographer’s positive energy.
Take your time and enjoy trying new approaches with different angles and exciting visual compositions in photographing your dog.

Filling the frame with your pet’s face and big eyes and tight close up shots often make beautiful dog portraits.

Your dogs eyes can be very expressive. Focus on keeping sharp eyes is important in every kind of portrait photography. “Eyes are the window to the soul.”
