Six Simple Tips to Help Make Your Pet Shots Stand Out

Tip #1- Pet photography is about capturing the essence and the personality of an animal in a snapshot. To be successful at this you must try to depict a day of their life. Whats their most characteristic action? The best way of going about this is doing nothing. You must let the animal be themselves. That means, go to their level and visit their comfort zone. Use perspective and zoom to capture a degree of intimacy.

Tip #2- Be patient. The most rewarding images usually come after waiting for a long period of time. Not every minute is a good time for pet photography. Your pet may be napping, there could be bad lighting, etc. In that case,  I suggest going about your regular routine until you see an image worth capturing. But, you must still be aware of what your pet is doing if you want to still capture something that's "picture perfect."

Tip #3- Take lots of pictures. Try shots at different angles, magnification, perspectives, composition, etc. because you'll never know what shot will end up being the best. Also don't overlook details, framing very tightly can make for an interesting scene. Consider the usage of certain lens', depending on whether your aim is to compact the environment or open it you must shoot at different focal lengths.

Tip #4- Avoid using flash and other distracting equipment. The use of objects that are distressing to an animal can result in unnatural images.

Tip #5- Usually, action images make a photograph stand out. So go for an image where the pet is doing an activity that it usually does. If you need to, use toys and balls to start it off.

Tip #6- For truly colorful images of your pet you must get environmental. That means bring your pet to a place where they can interact. This leads to more fun, candid images.

...and one more for safe keeping...

Tip #7-  Don't be afraid to let your pet get close. The more intimate the animal is with your camera, the more intimate it is with your viewer.
