Tips for Shooting Photos of Your Pets (and Kids)


The Webshots Blog has tips for photographing “Kids and Pets.” I love the fact that the author of the post (Penny Adams) makes almost no distinction between shooting kids and pets (and the distinction, of course, may be next to nil when we’re talking about taking a good photo… your experience may vary).

“Children and pets share similarities when it come to photographing them. They both drool and can leave puddles in unexpected places, but they also have lots of personality, incredibly cute expressions and very short attention spans.”

What’s your experience with taking photos of your pets? Do you have any tips that they missed, something to help us (and our readers) when taking pictures of their pets (or, you know, their kids)?

Don’t forget that if you have some great photographs, we’d love for you to share them with Itchmo. Send your pet pics to or join our Flickr group.
