I took this photo yesterday while Bruno was asleep which is one of the few times I can sneak photos of my furry diva.
(Did anyone else feel the earthquake in LA yesterday?)
One of the simplest ways to achieve a more interesting photo is to get down to your subject’s eye level. This is especially useful when photographing children or pets. For this shot, I laid flat on my stomach, focused on his eyes, and moved the camera to my left so Bruno is composed to the right. Another option is to shoot up – meaning, lie on your back and shoot up towards your subject. Both angles tend to be more interesting because they’re not from one’s typical viewpoint. And it’s fun to see the world from a unique perspective. Also try this when capturing nature shots like flowers and trees and such. It’s a whole different world down there. ;)
An old photo I recently came across – captured on Christmas Day ’08. It was one of the first photos I took with my very first dslr (Nikon D60). Even then I couldn’t take photos of Bruno unless he was asleep.
