    few bits of advice for photographing dogs.

    - It all about emotion in the eyes with them. They have no real body language to speak with. Never miss focus on the eyes.

    - Get low, and when you think you are low enough, get lower. So of the best pictures of my dog that I have taken have been from me laying on my back.

    - Don't show the dogs butthole. It doesn't work. Ever.

    Agreed. This will apply to pretty much anything that has eyes. If your subject has eyes, make sure they are sharp. (With very few, if any exceptions)

    Several books I have read state that you should never shoot down on children or animals. The simplest reason is because this is the perspective they are usually seen from by most people, and therefore most people will find these shots boring. Getting low is one way of giving them a perspective they rarely see, which be more interesting for the viewer.
