Any pet photographer would say the key to taking good photos is speed, as animals move extremely quick. You only have a few seconds to aim, frame and shoot before they strike another pose. Sometimes you can just snap, snap, snap and worry about the outcome later. It’s a very fun and spontaneous activity. This is what I learned and experienced at my first impromptu pet photography session at my friend’s house with his dog Brie.
Brie is a very active and intelligent dog with lots of interesting expressions. The best expression can be captured if you are face-level with her, but you can have some good shots from other angles as well. She has two signature moves, the “classic beg” and the “kung-fu palm,” both of which are captured in the images below. She also has beautiful eyes and long lashes, or as I like to call them, “eye whiskers.” I hope you enjoy these whimsical shots! 🙂
