Sound Effects Used To Catch Dog's Attention For Picture Taking

Acting like a human being is something a dog rarely does not do at the most inconvenient times. According to the belief of some dog owners, dogs need to be loved and cared for because they are also emotional beings. The recognition and study made on dog moods, likes, and dislikes contribute to a successful animal portrait.

Wagging his tail and refusing to prick up his ears are instances when a dog shows he resents having his picture taken. He can be decidedly stubborn and drive the portrait artist to distraction. Hold the dog’s attention by using something to catch his sense of hearing, and it will give you an interesting and conspicuous pose. A dog who tries to search for a scent would ruin the gracefulness of the shot, but one who is mildly startled would prick up his ears and stand straight.

Taking the picture early in the morning is most recommended since it will be when he is most alert. The hungry dog shows alertness and can easily do the desired pose. During this time of the day, it is cool and so his mouth would not be hanging open as much compared to the later hours of the day. Dogs with mouths wide open and dogs that look tired don’t make good subjects.

The studios of dog photographers resemble in one respect the studios of radio broadcasting stations. Different kinds of sound effects are available for use just in case one sound effect cannot be used to bring out the attention the photographer wants. Many sounds can be produced, just like duck quacks and pop guns.

When a breeder looks at the proofs of his dog’s portraits, he expects to see perfection and all the good points of his dog. Dog photographers are resigned to the fact that what an artist puts into his sketches is different from what a photographer should include in his canine portraits. The basis of an artist’s drawing is what is visible and not what is known. When working with dogs, the other way is true, and the photographer must be able to get into the picture what should be there and not what is seen.

The length of a daschund should be blown out of proportion. Dogs’ bodies should be slightly tilted at an angle and their feet should be placed firmly on the ground for the shot. The German boxer is the most complicated case out of all the breeds. Though quite a friendly dog at times, it can be nasty when other dogs are present.

Amateur photographers of dogs often lose sight of the fact that the hungry dog is the easiest to photograph. Amateur photographers who stuff their dogs will end up with lazy and disinterested subjects when the shoot takes place. A dog can assume the pose with no problem at all if he is alert.

Most photographers want the breeder absent when they are posing a dog. Dog owners can make a big fuss about a lot of things regarding their dogs, and it is for this reason that they do this. The master’s presence would not matter since the dog is already used to his tricks. Strange sound effects on the other hand would bring out the reaction needed from the animal.
