Friday | Picture of the Week | Week 22

This is Ellie Mae, one half of the Baby-Boston-Ellie-Mae-Team-of-Terror. She is my sister’s Lhasa Apso. Since Kelsey loves these two little pups like children, I thought she might enjoy a picture or two of them.

I read a tip once that suggested when photographing children to get down low so you are at their level. Most photographs of children and pets are taken from 4ft feet above the subject which results in the object looking distorted and dwarf-like. When you get down low the camera sees the world from their perspective and creates an instantly more interesting photograph.

I try to keep this in mind when photographing such subjects and I have to say this is one of those tips you don’t even need a “fancy” camera for!
