p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Pet and people portraits


A co-worker has asked if I would be willing to shoot some photos of her with her dog and I could use some creative help as I haven't done anything like this before. Please post your favorite dog & people shots, I would greatly appreciate it.

I will be shooting a D600 and bringing the 24 2.8, 50 1.4, and 80-200 2.8.

Love the first, but that just could be my proclivity toward chocolate and Labs!

Ha! Now why would you want to mess up a good dog portrait with a person? Just kidding (sorta). Anyway, I don't claim these are good (mostly candid) but they are examples for you to peruse... Mike

No pet picture from me, but do watch the focus on the dog's eyes and nose when you get in close. You don't want sharp focused eyes and blurred noses, which are easy to get if you're not paying attention.

So in other words, it would probably be best to not shoot wide open and stop down just a bit.

Whatever it takes to keep nose and eyes in focus. Sometimes a side view will do the trick, but that won't be acceptable for all shots.

Shekar,Excellant images one and all! Your photos look fine to me. And the OP's title does allow people and pets, whether alone or together.
Again excellent exposed images. Great examples for the OP.

I never be in pet photography. But as my opinion, this is really appreciable work. I really liked this.

Thanks

Funny that! I wouldn't do anything other than pets (other than shooting my kids from the sidelines of football games)! That's one of the things I love about this....different flavors and tastes for everyone...Dogs RULE! Keep Calm and Shutter On.....
