one shot after the other was a mug shot... help
i also tried a color background.. but what color would be good.. because the burnt orange did not do anything..How do you get your dog to smile.. i said cat about 100 times.. nothing..
Why the long face?
thats what i want to know... sad sad dobie...
You need to say "Go tear the cat to shreds" :lmao:
That might work.. but then there would be no dobie in sight... i am going to try it again with cookies...
Next week on a very special episode of COPS....
Then she will be smiling..
I know you say "help" but I have to tell you that I love that shot.
well thank you very much
I find it hard to get good shots of my dog if she is aware that I am taking pictures. She will focus on the camera and I get a result like yours (but it doesn't look as good). I usually try to snap pictures when she is too tired to care what I am doing or when she is playing with someone else. Im looking forward to seeing some more shots. That is an awesome dog.
Back up about 5 feet you are to close. Get the dogs eyes in focus the nose does not have to be perfect, shoot it at about F5.6.
Get a nice fairly clean background that will add some color/character to the shot, some nice earthy tones.
Point your flash to the side wall, bounce it onto the dog, not direct.
Get someone else to call your dog so he is looking to the side about 45 degrees, the camera should be slightly above the dog so the angle is not right down his nose.
Try that and post an example.
