Don't Be Scared Of Taking Havanese Pictures

Aug 27, 2008
Living with a Havanese is great fun, but it can get routine. Walk, pet, feed, scratch - walk, pet, feed, scratch - it can get a little monotonous. Both you and your Havanese sometimes want to break out of the routine and interact in fun ways. Havanese love being the center of attention (as you've probably noticed). What better way of making your dog the star by taking Havanese pictures.

It's not the end of the world if you can't get the perfect shot the first time. Even professionals can't do that! Be ready to take many shots in order to get the picture that just stands heads and shoulders above the rest.

You need plenty of the three P's when taking Havanese pictures - patience, persistence and practice. Just like with any new training, start off taking indoor shots to minimize distractions. Keep the sessions only about ten to fifteen minutes at a time.

If your dog knows "stay", this is a great time to reinforce that command. You'll need a zoom lens in order to get clear, focused head-only shots. But even disposable 35mm cameras are great for getting good full-body shots of your furry supermodel.

What color is your dog? Have the background be a contrasting color, to make your dog stand out better. Have lighting behind you, but use a flash is the camera tells you to. Be ready to take lots of pictures - maybe even a whole roll a session, in order to get that perfect shot. This is what professionals do. You can't get away from it. With practice, your dog will know more of what to expect and there will be less "wasted" shots.

Make camera time a fun, rewarding time for your dog and he or she will be a joy to photograph. Use a happy voice, have plenty or treats or a special toy on hand as a reward afterwards, and never get cross or hit the dog. Most Havanese get the gist of getting their picture taken within a few short sessions. If you can make the first photographic sessions less than fifteen minutes a time, this will help keep your Havanese's attention.

If you don't have a helper to keep a squirmy puppy still, then you need to trick the pup into staying still enough for you. You just might have to do a lot of quick moving about to fit the pup's face into your frame. Get a small amount of food in a shallow, heavy bowl (pups like to push!) to keep the pup still for at least half a minute for a clear shot.

You can always but a blanket or towel over a chair to make a good background color. Most importantly, have fun!
