    Took these this afternoon of my moms Boston and my Boxer. Anything I could've done different besides cleaning up the slobber on the boxer (which IS IMPOSSIBLE) Thanks! :mrgreen:

    They aer pretty good. A couple things I like to do (this is my feelings anyway)...i either make the dog look into the camera or if not, then just slightly to the side. Like between straight on and the angle you chose. Also, maybe a tighter shot or closer crop to get a little more fur detail. otherwise, decent exposures. Maybe a more blurred or less distracting background as well.

    Agree with Montana; additionally choose a less 'busy' background. Try for something contigous and green like a hedge, and use more separation to ensure that it's soft.

    Thanks for the tips. I was pressed for time....and for once the dogs had wore themselves out playing long enough to get a shot or two. :mrgreen: I knew the background was going to be a problem. I'll try something different next time.
