12 Tips for Photographing Your Pets

Use food and toys to your advantage

If you're photographing a pet that refuses to look at the camera, try using treats and toys to grab its attention. Dangling a feather toy next to the camera works well for cats, while a piece of meat should do the trick for a dog. We recommend recruiting a friend to help out, so you can stay focused on getting the shot.
