This is a little bit random family portrait, but our family pet Butterbur has been going rampant in our gardens and it was perfect timing to take his portrait! A few tips when shooting your family pets. First, use a long lens to blur your background. This gives prominence to the animal’s portrait. Second, get down to your pets level for the photo shoot, it’s a different angle from the one you see all day long. Like Butter, you will get an awesome expression with those wonderful animal eyes. My last advise, timing is everything. When is your pet most behaved, and morning or evening lighting is best if you plan an outdoor portrait to get that cool rim light.
