    DefaultPhotography tips

    Just thought I would start a new thread about some basic photography tips on stacked dogs. I like to position myself in a particular spot so that I can see a little of the opposite legs - not too much but just enough.

    Dead on side shot:


    Too much of the opposite legs - too far in front of the dog:


    Too far to the rear - she is going away from me:


    Just right:

    How do you get them to stay in that position?

    Training.


    Good grief Sharon. The pics are huge. LOL


    Anyway, this would have been a nice pic IF the dimwit taking it had listened and moved over.

    LOL I can't see the pictures for scrolling, but I agree...the positioning is great in the last two.

    Sometimes easier said than done though.

    I usually just end up taking what is offered. Usually that means my 6 year old nephew helping.

    I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and get a remote and tripod for my camera since I don't have easy access to help, only when dog-friends come over and get roped into photography duty.

    Yeah, too big. Even the scrolling is hard. I must have a smaller screen too.

    I have a 1440 x 900 screen and I have to scroll. Not counting the bandwidth to try and get them opened, even on cable. The last one of the yellow is over 3 MB!!!

    Even your "bad" ones look pretty darn good to me! LOL

    Now the question, is someone baiting them for you and you take the shot, or did you set up a tripod and remote?

    Thank you Felicia. I hate resizing - it drives me crazy. Photobucket used to do it for this site but not any more. Some are the same size but come through huge and others are fine.

    Anyway some were taken with a tripod and remote - my bottom two that I really (Clint and Wigeon) like were with me baiting and snapping with the remote. The middle ones of Scout taken at the wrong angle are with my husband baiting. He's gotten better over the years but I find I have the best luck with me doing both.

    The biggest challenge with the tripod is to position it right - dial it down so that it's low and look through and see where the best spot is in front of you and then go out and mark it before taking the photos. Then bait and snap away. I still take a whole series of the back end of a dog sometimes and it's frustrating :suspious: when I they were baiting perfectly but try, try, again.
