5. Getting Down (Low)
One of the classic pet photos is what we often call ‘the Bobble Head’. You are looking down at your pet, they are (hopefully) looking up at you, their head seems large and there is a hint of a smile of their face. It is cute, its lovely, it’s a little vulnerable.
But we don’t always want cute and vulnerable.
Give your pet some power and some strength by getting down on your knees, your butt – or in my case down on my belly – and look up at them.
Getting down on to their level and looking at the world from your pets perspective, at their level, removes that normal perspective us humans have and makes for a very unique portrait.
