KoKo’s Tips on dog photography

At Mosman Park Beach WA

At Mosman Park Beach WA

 

  1. Photograph in natural light.
  2. Inside place your dog near a white wall within window light
  3. Clear the background of any distractions
  4. Use an aperture that creates a soft blurred background.
  5. Put a treat on top of the camera to get your dog’s attention.
  6. Ask a friend to help
  7. Get down to your pet’s level to achieve a  natural view.
  8. Use a squeaky toy, to get some eye contact.
  9. Walk your dog first to burn off excess energy
  10. Take your dog out for a big walk prior to the photo shoot, to work of fsome excess energy first.
  11. Use fabric to pad slippery surfaces.
  12. Outdoors – A high speed shot of your dog running can be dramatic. You will need an assistant to hold your dog until you are ready to call “come”

Tony Hewitt’s Photography Exhibition

My mum took me to Linton and Kay’s Gallery in Subiaco last night. It was very crowded as Tony’s aerial photos are very popular – lots of turquoise blues and, in one photo, I could even see some whale sharks swimming happily together.

On these nights I am introduced as the Subiaco Art critic which means I can chat to everyone and get lots of pats. There is no food or puppicinos as the people all drink that sparkly water stuff.  I made do with some melted ice and rain water on the way back to the car.

I like being such a well known Subiaco Dog! It has allowed me to become very cultured. Woofs from KoKo
