Puppy Photography: How to Choose the Right Location for a Photoshoot

What is the best camera for pet photography? The one you have, of course! There is a quote that is often mentioned in photography circles that the best camera is the one you have with you at any given time. In other words, if your dog is doing something cute and you only have your cell phone’s camera, that’s the one to use!

Ansel Adams--a famous landscape photographer--once said that “you don’t take a photograph, you make it.” That’s the sentiment we’d like to focus on in today’s post. When it comes to dog photography tips, this is the one that you would do well to keep at the forefront of your mind. How does that relate to taking a cute dog pic? That’s the topic of the day, so keep reading to learn more!

The Best Dog Pictures Capture Your Pet Perfectly

Of course the best thing you can do when it comes to puppy photography is capture your pet at his or her finest. You know your pet better than anyone else on the planet. Essentially your goal is to capture the essence of your pet in a photo. Woofie makes it easy to take pictures with dogs because it gives your pooch something to focus on while you’re snapping the shutter.

Many photos of our pets end up on social media for friends and family members to enjoy and taking those pictures on our phones is probably the best way to go. You can snap a picture, edit it, throw on a filter, and have it up on social media all within a matter of minutes. It doesn’t get much better than that! At the end of the day, the most beautiful dog pictures are the ones where your pup is excited about something--and a treat attached to your camera is really something to get excited about!

Consider Your Surroundings

Noted photographer Timothy Allen once said that “it can be a trap of the photographer to think that his or her best pictures were the ones that were hardest to get.” We know that sometimes the best pictures are the ones that come the easiest. When your pup’s full attention is directed at the camera, you’re pretty much guaranteed to take a great photo.

That’s not to say, however, that what’s in the background doesn’t matter. Rather than getting a picture in your bedroom where there are clothes on the floor, head into your backyard and look for the perfect spot where you can capture the green grass and the blue sky along with a photo of your pet. It’s the little things that can take a picture from being pretty good to being really great. Take the time to consider what you can do to get the most out of your photo and go for it!
