This dog was precious! I took this while 2nd shooter on an engagement shoot – this couple was adorable, but I couldn’t take my eyes off their pup. This was taken with my old Canon 30D, but edited using my new LR/PS CC subscription 🙂
Here’s another one – the lighting was harsh and the dog’s nose a little blurry, but I still like this photo:
I couldn’t resist sharing another shot of this photogenic guy. He seems to be contemplating the meaning of Christmas, but really he is just trying to move his face away from the camera. This was taken with my Samsung Note 3 (again – I can’t wait until my new camera arrives!).
Franky has such an amazing, expressive face. I love photographing him, but unfortunately he does not love cameras, so my photos of him typically consist of him looking away or off to the side.
In this photo, he is suspiciously eyeing the ear cleaning solution we are about to administer. The way he looks, you’d think we were about to torture him.
Whenever any furry critter is around, I will be the first person to focus in and attempt to cuddle, kiss, and of course take photos of them. I have 5 pets myself, so I have a lot of opportunity to practice. It can be very tricky, especially when they don’t trust the big metal contraption you keep trying to shove in front of their face. But, in the end, the reward of the perfect (or almost perfect… Or flawed-but-strangely-perfect) photo is enough.
Again, these photos were taken on my phone and filters were used. Not all of them turned out the way I hoped, but I still loved each one.
Franky (dog) is rarely willing to pose for photos, so I have to catch him when he is utterly exhausted. Ralph (cat), on the other hand, grew up with a lens in his face, so he tends to ham it up. That is why I love taking pet photos so much – even when they hate cameras, their personality permeates the shot.
