Are you having trouble taking good pictures of your pet? I am here to help you by giving you tricks to take the best pictures of your animal companions!
The photo essay of this blog post features my niece, Jackie! She is a yellow lab who lives in Virginia with my older sister, Emily! Emily took photography classes in high school and fell in love with the art format. She has always had an eye for capturing moments and colors in a picture, and now she has the perfect tools to succeed in this feat! She takes a wide range of pictures, from landscapes, to still life, to portraits with Jackie the lab as her trusty model.
I hung out with them to help you, the reader, find out how to get the best picture for your animal companions! I also watched “Animal Photography,” on Kanopy, where National Geographic photographer, Joel Sartore and his “super doodle”, Muldoon, give some insight to pet photography as well.
The first step, get your camera. Joel Sartore says, “I just have a camera ready to go, and ready to take pictures wherever he is.”
As long as you have a camera, either a Canon, Nikon, or a camera on your smartphone, you have the capability of taking a good picture of your pet. In this article, Em is using her Canon Rebel, which is pictured below and Joel uses a different professional camera in his video.
