    Re: How to photograph dogs

    Hey wud.

    i took some pics of the old collie over the weekend. It was dark by the time I got to where he was though so they're all indoors.

    need to do a bit of PP to correct the white balance on them - I'm so lazy with WB cus I shoot in raw it stays on auto regardless!! Will upload them when I've done so you can see him.

    Here is my boy Zeus, I had to bump the ISO to 800 even though it was sunny (80-400 @400)

    He's such a soppy bugger! Getting on a bit now - we've had him since he was 2 and he's the grand old age of 15 now. Would have liked to get some outdoor pics of him but I didn't get there in time for daylight.

    I find that dogs dont mind running directly against the sun. If he had done that, she shadow wouldn't have darkened one side of him Also I would either have included more surroundings and taken the shot directly at him, or used a higher aperture, to get the grass more blurred out.

    But you got him in a happy pose, thats good!

    Aw, border collie. Such a lovely dog. I like the first two the most - the last one is a bit to dark and to much stuff going on in the back.
    The first one, his eyes are really good, very calm.
    The second I think maybe he is thinking your camera are a bit weird lol. But could also just be the famous border collie look!

    What I do, when getting a picture with the camera semi-close and above the dog is: click - goodie - praising, click - goodie - praising, several times. I act and move calmly and praise them in a low voice so they won't move, but dogs often don't like you coming at them from above..

    Thanks Mia for the reply, I was using my 80-400VR (slow focusing) Best Aperture is f/7.1. But yeah I didn't think of the back ground as was at a dog park with little around, I think next time I will get lower to the ground as I think this will help and I will pay attention to the sun ;-)
