Take better photos of your pets

Capture your furry friend outdoors, in large patches of sunlight or shade. Or for indoor photos, make sure blinds are open and have the light coming in from the front or side of your guy, not from behind.

Make it fun, don’t make camera time an obedience test. Dogs develop positive associations with the camera when you use treats and make it a game. Let yours run around the yard between poses. He’ll look forward to seeing the camera.

Get on his level, whether you have a kitten or a full-grown dog, his perspective is totally different than yours. So, get on the ground, even try lying down, and see the world from his eyes.

Break out the camera after a long walk or an extended playtime, and he may be much more likely to cooperate and “smile” for the camera.
