Need some advice on photographing dogs

11 years 2 months ago #45 by Game Plan
I have few dogs and would like to photograph them all together. The problem is getting them all to stand still while I take photo. It seems when one is still the other two are moving around, when I've gotten two to stand still the other one is running off! :silly:

I've tried bribes with treats but this gets them all excited and they don't stay still.

Any tips?

Thanks!

Are you good at Photoshop? I would take one photo of each and try to combine all the photos into one in Photoshop via layers.

3 dogs? That sounds like a challenging one. I would have your camera set up on a tripod and cable release, get all the dogs staring up at a treat and snap the photo.

I'm very amateur with photoshop, I have it, but wouldn't go saying I'm a expert. Good idea, I will try this!

Thank you also! I will try this one first and cross fingers. Oh wait I need to get a cable release! How long of cables to they come in?
