I am sure some great cell phone photography tips would be greatly appreciated to insure you capture wonderful dog or cat moments particularly at this time of social distancing! I just learned from www.silverpawsstudio.com owned by “FurTographer, (as she calls herself) Monique Rodriquez.
- Always clean your lens.
- Set your camera to “portrait” or “promode”
- Have your camera quickly available so as not to lose the shot. In order to do this, keep your “Home” screen unlocked on camera mode.
- When taking a picture, do not cover the phone with your face as most of us do as you lose eye contact with your pet. When you do this, they think you have disengaged from them so they look elsewhere…so, lower your phone so they can see your face and you can still see your screen!
- If you have a black or dark brown pet and you are indoors-put your back to the window and let the light shine on the dog or cat Try to have a dark backdrop behind the dog so the automatic exposure from your camera will focus on all that is dark and you will get the most suitable automatic exposure for you picture. Further, if the light is coming sideways onto the pet, it is also optimum.
- To have some fun on your posts with your pictures download the mytalkingpet app. You will be able to easily set up you picture to make it look like your dog or cat is talking using the app and your voice!
- Lastly, with the app onesecondeveryday, if you take a picture regularly(every day) of your furry child it can easily create a fun progression video diary for you! You can download the app onesecondeveryday from apple.com for iphones or from google play for androids. Wish wde had done this!
Have fun and be safe.
