My wife and I are interested in rescuing a yorkie so last nite we met with the founders of the local organization and they mentioned how the pic of the dog on their website can mean the difference between the dog getting adopted or not (bad pic = forgotten pooch). They casually mentioned that they wish they had a good photographer to get quality pics of the dogs as they believe this would help them find homes. So my question is (before I volunteer my "services") would you take an animal photo using the same practices as taking a person's portrait? Does anyone have any other advice for animals? I'm not sure I'll go through with it but I figured it was a good cause and good practice so it's worth putting some thought into.
