We work in short increments to keep your pet interested. We think of your pet as a toddler, and you'll have a good idea of how long we can keep the pets attention span.  By taking breaks and only shooting a couple of photos at a time, we have a happier, more engaged pet for the photo shoot. If we have another person nearby, it might be easier if they use the toy to play with the pet while we capture pictures. Tug-of-war toys work great for dogs, and string-type toys work well for cats, as we can entice them to come over. Any toy that keeps the family pet mostly in the same place should be fine. Balls don't work as well, unless someone is throwing a ball in our direction. Otherwise, the animal will be running away from us. Your pets are the cutest, and of course you want photos of them to post online or just have around the house! However, whether they stay still or bounce around, pets are a tricky subject for photography. We have to work with the pet to get them to look at the

Portrait Photography Tips and Tricks

Image
People photographs fall into two categories: portraits and candid. Either can be made with or without your subject's awareness and cooperation. However near or far your subject, however intimate or distant the gaze your camera casts, you always need to keep in mind the elements of composition and the technique that will best help you communicate what you are trying to say. Get Closer: The most common mistake made by photographers is that they are not physically close enough to their subjects. In some cases this means that the center of interest—the subject—is just a speck, too small to have any impact. Even when it is big enough to be decipherable, it usually carries little meaning. Viewers can sense when a subject is small because it was supposed to be and when it's small because the photographer was too shy to get close. Don't be shy. If you approach people in the right way, they'll usually be happy to have their picture made. It's up to you to break the ice and g

As well as requiring photography skills, wildlife photographers may need field craft skills.  For example, some animals are difficult to approach and thus a knowledge of the animal's behavior is needed in order to be able to predict its actions. Photographing some species may require stalking skills or the use of a hide/blind for concealment. B.C. wildlife photography is a genre for photographers concerned with documenting various forms of wildlife in their natural habitat. In the early days of photography, it was difficult to get a photograph of wildlife due to slow lenses and the low sensitivity of photographic media. Earlier photos of animals were usually pets, stuffed, and zoo animals. These included photos of lion cubs taken at the Bristol zoo in 1854 and in 1864, photos of the last Quagga by Frank Hayes. Wildlife photography gained more traction when faster photography emulsions and quicker shutters came in the 1880s.  Developments like these lead to photos such as the ones t

Tips For Landscape Photography

Image
We've all had the experience: Driving through a beautiful landscape, you stop at every scenic overlook to make photographs sure to capture the grandeur of what you see. You get home, look at the pictures, and find them flat and boring. All the elements that enthralled you at the time are there, but not the feeling. Why? When we look at a landscape, our eyes travel over it and selectively focus on the elements that we find appealing. Our field of vision encompasses a great deal of the scene, but our eyes and brains have the ability to ignore all except the most alluring details. Lenses and sensors or film cannot do this by themselves. They need help. Time is the most important investment you can make in getting good landscape pictures. When you arrive in a place you've never visited before, spend time scouting—driving or hiking to different locations, finding different vantage points. Carry a compass to figure out where the sun will rise and set, and imagine how the place would

If you have another person nearby, it might be easier if they use the toy to play with the pet while you snap pictures.  Tug-of-war toys work great for dogs, and string-type toys work well for cats, as you can entice them to come over. Any toy that keeps your pet mostly in the same place should be fine. Balls don't work as well, unless someone is throwing a ball in your direction. Otherwise, the animal will be running away from you. Use the appropriate voice for the type of pet you're photographing. For a dog, be very, very cheerful. Dogs love upbeat voices, especially when you're telling the dog what a good boy or girl they are! Other pets may do better with calm, almost cooing voices. You know what your pet likes to hear! Use the pet names you have for it, using your happy voice. For instance, try a cheerful but calm voice when working with cats. For birds, be very cheerful, but not so loud you scare them. Whistles may help, too! If it's not our pet, we get the owner

Capture nature with natural light nature photography

Although ach person has a unique vision of surroundings, the avid photographer uses both tenacity and technology to contribute a new paradigm.  A photographer impels spectators into a dynamic head-turning environment inspired by a truly unique itinerary; nature. It takes more than a camera to fill a gallery with art worth contemplating. It takes an eye-an eye that is seemingly dispossessed of the world around it, yet in actuality intricately attuned to that very world. A world of individuals. Although each person has a unique vision of surroundings, the avid photographer uses both tenacity and technology to contribute a new paradigm.

Composition in Photography: I have decided to publish a series of articles through which I’d cover important aspects and elements of composition in photography.  Think of it as a “back to basics” in order to advance better. Strong foundations, just like in building construction, are key to further your photography and take it to the next level.  To begin with, I always tell people to look at “rules” as guidelines rather than anything too serious. Rules should never stop you experimenting and exploring beyond them.  Too many rules kill creativity. Photography composition can be broadly described as how everything in a photograph is “balanced”, how things flow, how every element fits and interacts with the rest in terms of colour, textures, lines, focus, contrast… Good composition will result in a good photo provided the chosen subject and concept behind the image are good too. This is a fairly wide subject which also has slight variations depending on the genre of photography you shoot.

Capturing Pet Moments To Captivate Hearts

Your pets are the cutest, and of course you want photos of them to post online or just have around the house!  However, whether they stay still or bounce around, pets are a tricky subject for photography. You have to work with the pet to get them to look at the camera, and you have to be quick when you're taking photos! Hold the camera out to the animal for a good sniff. Anytime an animal sees something new, it's going to be curious, especially cats. Let the animal take a moment to give the camera a good sniff all over, so they will be less likely to do so in the middle of your photo shoot. If you're not photographing your own pet, let the animal give you a good sniff as well, so they are more comfortable in the session. Natural light is great for any photography, and pet photography is no exception.  Get them used to the flash and shutter sound. Sometimes, the flash will freeze an animal in place for a second, which can be good if you're trying to get a still shot. How
