What the heck is she talking about?
Let me show you.
Take this photo for example... given the fact this image was taken using my old cell phone, and it is incredibly hard to take a bad photo of any pet, the fact remains that this photo was taken while I was standing up.
Now, take a look at this one...
This photo was taken when I got down to their level. Getting down to their level while taking photos makes a huge difference. You are able to see so much more of them, you are getting right there, face to face, as you snap that shot.
This photo was taken while standing up. Beautiful photo of course, but...
Taken while I was sitting down on the ground - her level. You get so much more!
And the last 2 examples -
Image above was taken while I was standing up.
And this image was taken while I was down at her level.
So, as I mentioned above, if there is one thing I have learned about photography, it's that getting down to their level makes a huge impact. Now, there are some exceptions of course. For instance, when I am taking a photo of them enjoying a dog treat, I like to stand up, and have the camera focus more on the treat rather than the dog. Mostly for product review posts etc...
Stay tuned in future posts, where I will share more on different photography tips I have picked up over the last couple years.
Have you ever tried getting right down to the level of your pets while taking their photos?
Did you notice the same difference I did?
