  Taking the Perfect Pet Shot  

Most of us like to take and have pictures of our families, and this includes our four-footed family members as well. Often you can see people displaying pictures of their pets as proudly as they display pictures of their children. It can be difficult, however, to get pets to cooperate when we want to take their pictures, but there are some tricks that we can use to make the job a little easier. We can often get the best pictures of them by playing to their natures.

Sometimes this means asking for a little help; one person taking the picture and one person working with the animal.

To get good shots of your dog, enlist the help of another person and have this person interact with the dog and try to elicit various reactions. Choose a setting that will show your dog off in the best light, and use your zoom often to capture your dog's mood. Use a camera with a shutter speed that will allow you to get clear action shots. Have your helper try to inspire the best facial expressions and body language shots. This can include encouraging the dog to tilt his head when curious, lift his head high with ears up in an alert pose, or stand with chest down on the ground and hindquarters up in the air in a playful posture.

Cats are, of course, a different story. To get the best pictures of your cat you should also enlist someone's help. Since cats never concern themselves with pleasing their owners, you have to watch your cat's moods and take advantage of the times when he is feeling playful or particularly amiable. When the time is right, have someone help you get good shots by bringing out your cat's favorite toys and enticing the cat to play. If you want more of a portrait shot, try to get your cat comfortable in the setting that you want to shoot him in, and then wait for the right shot. Understand that you'll be working on his timetable, not yours.

Pets could care less about having their pictures taken, so it's up to you to set up an environment for them that will help you get the best shots. Pester them too much with a camera and they'll start to see it as something to avoid, so keep the camera out of their sight as much as possible. If you can't avoid having them see the camera, try to associate it with something good such as their favorite treats or toys. Cater to what your pets like and you'll be rewarded with memorable pictures.
