Tips for taking pet photos

Taking photos of pets can sometimes be difficult because they tend not to stay still for several minutes, but with your camera settings in mind and a couple of tricks, you could capture wonderful snapshots worth thumping your chest over.

  1. Same goes for cats. You kinda have to catch them in the moment before they change position!! Sometimes Sylvester will stay still or “in pose” or sometimes, I believe on purpose he will move or put his little nose right on my camera lens!! Now that makes for a silly funny kitty photo!!
