Dogs are fantastic!

A dog really is your best friend, (s)he will always make you look good in a photograph. Dogs are like children, they don’t have to work at relaxing and being themselves. The problem is getting them to be themselves in exactly the right place, also a bit like children. Like children they also get bored so having a few treats handy is a good idea and ‘worked a treat’ on these three. Another good trick I used with another triple dog portrait was to loop one lead through all three dog collars, I then slowly pulled their heads together. Back in Photoshop  I just removed the lead where it showed. Shots out of the studio are also fun but it is often a more reportage approach.

The studio is a great place to bring a nice clean dog for a picture either on their own or with you. For a more natural shot I would go for a walk with dog and owner and get pictures of the dog and owner having fun or simply being together. This could be a good way for people who are usually shy in front of a camera having a photo taken, acting naturally, distracted by their pet.

As a dog lover myself spending time with these lovely creatures is a real pleasure and the photographs are always stunning.
