  1. Introduction: There are two major shooting problems in the Hollywood film industry. One is children and the other is animals. Coincidentally, these two points are also applicable for photography. Let me share with you a few pet photography shooting. Tips, let’s take a look together!
    Pet photography shooting small tricks 1. Safety is always the top priority
    All pets, no matter how docile and cute it looks, it is still animal nature. Therefore, we cannot ignore security issues when shooting. Especially those stray cats, stray dogs and the like, they may have experienced the experience of being abused by humans before, and this animal has a heavier wishes to humans. Before shooting animals for the first time, we need to spend some time to get along with pets to let pets smell your smell, the smell of clothes, and the smell of the camera to enhance each other’s understanding. Do not suddenly exercise sharply during shooting, or make a sound with a lot of volume. This behavior may scare your pet and even cause attacks.
    2. Shooting dogs
    The best friends of human beings are animals that can cooperate with us, such as dogs. They are easier to respond to sound signals, and it is easier to adjust the position of the body from the angle of light and ideal shooting. Once they are familiar with it, the dog’s shooting is relatively easy among various pets.
    3. Our best friend
    The most precious photos are usually photos that record the interaction between people and dogs. When shooting, we need to pay attention to when these moments may appear. So that we can prepare for shooting in advance. This moment may appear when your child goes home from school. After the child opens the door, the dog usually rushes over to say hello to the child, or when your mother is sitting in his favorite armchair, the dog will also pounce on her arms.
    is similar to shooting portraits. Proper body settings and light conditions also help bring out emotions in animal photography. The above photo was taken with a 85mm lens. The main body in the picture is the intimate contact between my youngest daughter and my dog. I set the aperture in F/1.8, creating a dreamy “ “ “ Intorgical blurring effect, and setting out the friendship and trust between humans and animals.
    Next, the picture below was taken for a customer. Their family lived with their pets on the beach. I hope that the beach environment can be incorporated into the composition when shooting, but the sunlight in the afternoon is not suitable for shooting. Fortunately, I found a shadow area after the locker room by the beach, and then I used the reflective board to reflect part of the sun on the beach into my shooting subject for shooting. Because children and dogs are on different coke planes, I choose to use F/5.0 aperture, which allows me to have a certain background blur effect on the premise of ensuring that the subject is clear.
    4. Shooting the dog’s smile
    It after the dog finishes a series of sports, they usually show a smile, well, in fact, just open their mouths. If you don’t want to shoot them while dogs are active, you can throw a ball first, let the dog exercise for a few minutes before shooting. The following photos were taken in this case. After the exercise, my dog ​​”smiled” in a cool place, and there was still a “loot” that I just recovered. In this shooting, I used F/2.2 aperture, which not only ensured that the dogs in the shadow had enough exposure, but also achieved the purpose of moderately blurred background.
    5. Take a crooked head action
    Ar the dogs when shooting this group of photos, put the dog on a lower ground or other positions, so that we can take a high level and shoot from a slightly down angle. In order to be able to shoot the picture of the dog crooked head, I made some sounds including cat barking to evoke the curiosity of the dog. The direction.
    6. Meow Star
    Meow Star, with their sharp eyes and long beards, became one of the most popular pet photography objects. Unlike dogs, they often do not stay so obediently at the designated position, and only when they like you, they will have a look with you. Therefore, we need to have more patience to shoot cats. Cats are natural hunters, and they like to capture wool balls and suspension toys. With their characteristics, we can seduce them to the pre -fixed shooting position. If possible, limit them in a relatively closed space.
    In the sound of your nail knife to make things. Cats like this sound very much. When they hear them, they will look at your direction. The following kitten photo was taken in a small room. There was a window in the room that allowed the light to come in. I seduced the kitten to the window and tried to let it look out of the window so that I could show ” The effect of lighting up. When I took this photo, I used ISO2000’s sensitivity, F/4.0 aperture, and a 35mm lens.
    Mas not forget to use the backlight, it can make the fluff on the cat more shiny and create a sacred halo effect.
    7. Rabbit
    In addition to the relatively mainstream family pets such as cats and dogs, Rabosk is also a kind of pet that people love, and their movements when they “wash their faces” are very cute. Rabbit usually loves cleanliness. If you wait for a long time, you can shoot their “face washing” lens without extra induction. However, you can also achieve the goal earlier through the actions of holding rabbits. When you put them down, they can’t wait to remove the smell you stayed on them, so the best way is to take it slowly and take the camera first first get ready. The protagonists of the following photos are two rabbits called Latte and Zeus. The first group is their general state, while the second group is their state when they “wash their faces”. Both photos were taken with aperture of F/4.0 and a 35mm lens.
    usually after entering a new environment, Raboski will habitually stand up to check the situation around them. The following picture is taken in this case.
    8. Little mice
    . Even if the people who love animals are the most likely to encounter the following animals, they are mice. But no matter it, I love them! The most attractive part of them is the long beard, and the movements when they eat. You must know that the movement speed of small creatures is quite fast, and the best way to shoot such creatures is to hold or hold them. At this time, if you have a macro lens in your hand, it will not be better.
    The photos below show the beautiful beard of mice. Of course, you can also see how petite and fragile they are. Fortunately, they still look comfortable in human hands.
    It is like shooting cats humans. When shooting these mice, I mainly rely on the natural light ingested from the window. Close to the window and use a high ISO. Fortunately, these photos are just displayed online, and noise is not a big deal.
