The Dogist is an Instagram that posts about 3 dog photos a day. The dog photos are based in New York but he sometimes goes to other places too. This is the Instagram account that inspired my account @thetweendogist
As you know we love animals. We take photos of them to share our love for them. That’s why The Tween Dogist Instagram was created. We take photos of your pet(s) for memories that will last forever. Each moment caught on camera is a permanent memory, but just a instant of that memory.
That’s the main reason why we take photos of our pets. That’s this blog post was created to show you the qualities of a perfect pet photo.
Quality is what matters most while taking the photo.
Make sure you photo is not blurry. If it’s blurry because that’s how it focuses then that’s fine. I suggest using a professional camera if you want it to be the best quality possible.
The Pet’s Body Positioning
It definitely matters what the pet’s body position is. If the pet was turned around that probably wouldn’t be the best photo possible, because you can’t see it’s facial expression. Facial expressions are important in photos because they show how that pet feels in that instant. So, if the pet was facing you then you can see how the pet feels in that instant, are they excited, are they a bit scared.
Get Down to Your Pet’s Level
If you get down to your pets level you will probably have a better photo than if you are standing and taking a photo them.
This is a picture of Isabella while I’m standing
And this is a photo of her when I’m at her level
See, when you are at the dog’s level you get a better photo with more detail. It also doesn’t look like you are looking down at your pet.
