5 Pet Photography Photo Tips

If you’re a pet owner, chances are that you take lots and lots of photos of your furry family member.

 

But, as all pet owners know, these creatures are unpredictable, which can make it hard to get the best picture.  So here are some suggestions to help you get the best possible photo of your pet!

So before you take out your camera, look at your subject’s environment and figure out where the best light is — then move to that spot.
