Bichon Frise: Photographing Your Pet

Taking picture perfect photos of your Bichon Frise may just be easier than you think. You may discover your pet’s hidden talents as a model if he/she is pretty well trained and you use some of these tips. With a few dog treats, a clicker and a little practice you can be well on your way to creating some great photos.

Click it! Use a clicker (children’s toy) to get your Bichon Frise’s attention. Make sure the dog doesn’t see it but only hears the clicker (hide it behind your back). Click it! (The clicker) When your doggy looks to see where the sound is coming from he/she will be looking directly at the camera with his ears perked up. Click it! (The camera) This shot should capture your pet looking more focused and alert and less submissive.

Say Cheese! Use your Bichon Frise’s favorite treats to reward him/her for cooperating and being such a good model.

Have Fun! Make your photo shoots fun. Play some favorite games with your Bichon first before enticing him to pose.

Stay! For a family photo train your Bichon to lie down in front of the family.
Frame it! Frame picture by zooming in on subject/subjects and avoid centering your pet in the viewfinder.

“Less is more”. Simplicity is the key when choosing a background. Busy or overly distracting backgrounds can interfere with the look you’re after. Go for even looking foreground and backgrounds. Keep an eye out for surroundings and color that may complement or enhance the mood of the picture”.

Dark Shadows! To avoid heavy shadows don’t photograph your pet too close to walls (especially when using a flash).

Ready, aim, shoot! Keep your camera ready to shoot with enough memory storage or batteries and close at hand in a familiar spot so that you’re not wasting time hunting for it. This way you can be ready for candid shots when they ‘happen’.

Practice makes perfect! The more pictures you take the better you’ll get and the more comfortable your Bichon Frise will get around the camera.

Glowing eyes? Correct with pens to use on prints or with a digital camera correct the problem using software on your computer. Avoid red eye by turning off flash attachment or covering with electrical tape or reposition flash on side or above camera.

“A picture is worth a thousand words”. Relax and have fun. Chances are if you are having fun then your Bichon Frise is too and it will show in your photograph.
