Shooting Dog Portraits

When shooting portraits it’s important to leave enough space around the borders that the image doesn’t looked crowded.  This can be a little tricky when also applying the rule of thirds because naturally you’re pushing the subject to an offset position.

In this case with Brody, once I had everything set up, I felt the top of his head was too close to the top of the frame. I should move the camera further back and re-frame the image but I risk of Brody getting bored and moving.


So, I simply asked him to duck down a little.

Just kidding, there was plenty of space to get the actual shot I wanted.

Thanks for Looking
