Dog photography can be an extremely fun and rewarding genre, but it also takes a lot more skill than it first appears. Whether you’re looking to make some money or just trying to capture some great memories of your own puppies, check out this great video tutorial which features an experienced dog photographer sharing five helpful tips to improve your work.
Coming from Elias Weiss Friedman, better known as The Dogist, with B&H Photo and Video, this helpful video tutorial shares five tips for improving your dog’s photography. Having photographed over 50,000 dogs in his career, Friedman has a ton of experience to share. Even if you don’t plan on doing it professionally, taking the time to capture fond memories of your own puppies is well worth it. More than anything, be prepared to exercise a lot of patience. You can’t treat dogs like human subjects or have the same expectations of them, and often it will take you a lot longer to feel comfortable with them and get the shots you want. Watch the video above for Friedman’s full recap.
