We are only allowed to share one photo for the #PetPhotographyChallenge in the Facebook group. I’m having trouble deciding which to submit this week, so wanted to see what our readers thought!
This week’s challenge “a lower perspective” was something I haven’t played around with much. I was hoping to do some outdoor photos for this week’s challenge, but once I saw what it was and the weather forecast for a snow/ice storm, I was pretty sure that wasn’t going to happen. Getting that lower perspective would require getting down on the ground and I wasn’t up for that on the ice!
The idea for this technique is to get a variety of viewpoints and perspectives in your photos. Shooting from down low can get rid of distracting backgrounds as well.
Luckily Luke gave me two different opportunities for shots, and I was able to grab the camera and lie down on the floor in the bedroom to get these. Luke is such a good model – I didn’t even have any treats and he was willing to sit there and pose! I just started shooting from different angles with different lens lengths (I have an 18-140 zoom lens). He was busy looking out the windows, though he would look directly at me when asked.
I like this first shot for the unusual angle….
but I also liked this shot because of Luke’s paws in the foreground.
