From time to time, I receive a question on how I capture Daisy smiling. Daisy is a happy girl and she makes it easy for me to capture her smile, but I have a few tips that help me furthermore.
- Relax- Dog's can sense your energy quite well. Relax and your dog will do the same. Try not to focus too much on getting the perfect shot. Once you relax, it will happen.
- Always be snap ready- I always have my camera with me, whether it's my phone, DSLR, or GoPro. I never want to miss an opportunity!
- Have fun- I capture the best smile when Daisy and I have fun together. I run with her, play with her favorite toys, give her belly rubs, which naturally make both Daisy and I happy. A few snaps and I have images of Daisy giving the biggest smile.
Photographing Daisy on a daily basis has brought us closer because it allows for one-on-one time. I'm focused on her expressions and learn what really makes her happy. I try and capture as much of our memories together as I can because I know that there will be a day when I can no longer do so. I hope that these tips will help you capture your pet's smile!
