Reading: Pet Photography Tips

There’s an excellent and entertaining article on professional pet photography over at the NY Times Blog.  Check it out: Expert Tips on Photographing your Pets.

“I end up doing a lot of gymnastics during a shoot. I’m crouching, kneeling, on my back, on my side, waking up sore the next morning. Shooting from just where you are results in a photo that’s pretty boring, because you’re capturing your pet at an angle that everyone else also sees. I do mostly shoot at the animal’s eye level. Now you’re in their world, two or three feet off the ground, and it results in a more personal, intimate photo.”
