Pet animals are really amusing photography subjects. They’re adorable and provide a whole new dimension to your humble photography. Taking pictures of your pets- or your neighbor’s- takes some practice, though.
If you’re lucky enough to get your dog to “stay”, then you can shoot it any which way you like. If you’ve got a runner though, then you’ve got your work cut out for you. If your camera allows, you’ll have to then adjust your shutter speed to 1/1000th of a second to be able to shoot your dog while in action. Otherwise, your best bet would be to just wait until your dog is tired and simply sitting still.
One last thing to remember when shooting pictures of pets, be sure they have warmed up to you first. The last thing you’d want Is to get a rabies shot.
