If you strug­gle to get a de­cent snap of your dog, try th­ese tips from a lead­ing dog pho­tog­ra­pher…

A mis­take we make when pho­tograph­ing dogs is that we don’t get down to the dog’s eye level. For a more en­gag­ing shot, sit, kneel or even lie down so your lens is level with the dog’s head. It looks bet­ter when the dog looks di­rectly into the lens – al­though dogs aren’t the most obe­di­ent of sub­jects. Also, try to cap­ture your dog’s per­son­al­ity, so take a photo when he is run­ning, for ex­am­ple.

Make sure the light is be­hind you, so that your dog is well lit, and avoid very bright light, as dogs tend to squint!

Watch out for dis­trac­tions in the back­ground. If they can’t be avoided, try us­ing Por­trait mode, like the one found on Google Pixel 2 – the cam­era works out what you’re try­ing to shoot and adds a nat­u­ral blur to the sur­round­ings.
