Tips To Take Better Pictures Of Your Pets
Taking better pictures of your pets is something most of us would love to do. On World Photography Day we thought we’d share some tips our sitters use when capturing that perfect pet picture. Whether it’s capturing your resident house panther (a black cat) or a speedy Italian Greyhound our sitters make sure to get your pets best side.
- The best shots are taken from below or at the animal’s eye level;
- Your subject should take up the upper 2/3 of the image;
- Focus on the eyes (especially with cats!);
- Action shots are great but require a high-speed continuous shooting mode to get them in focus (iOS has Burst Mode). This can be jumping, leaping, running, or chasing a toy for example;
- Portrait mode is great for keeping the subject in focus and the background not in focus;
- Struggling to get a subject to look at the camera? Treats!
If you do a lot of phone photography (or just like taking pictures of your own pets), I highly recommend Cadrage which simulates different focal lengths and will take the photos all at once so you can pick and choose.
