Take Professional Quality Poodle Pictures

Sep 16, 2008
Poodles of every size are extremely photogenic with their dark, expressive eyes. The Poodle is an ideal subject for canine portrait photography, whether you are working with a Toy Poodle, a Miniature Poodle or a Standard Poodle.

Your pictures will turn out better if you plan your photo session, plan your composition and use the right photo editing software. Using a digital camera can save you quite a bit of money over using an analog camera. What's more, digital photography is better for the environment, because processing analog film, even the pictures you don't want, consumes water and uses harmful chemicals. With digital photography, you only pay for the pictures that you want to keep. Blurry shots, bad shots, red eyes and other rejects all go straight into the digital trash can with a single click.

Digital photography makes it super easy to take professional looking photographs of your Poodle. Digital photography allows you to discard bad pictures immediately, which saves precious resources. Using a digital camera makes pictures easy to edit, and you can upload digital images to photo sharing sites, a digital photo frame, using in your scrapbook, using as desktop wallpaper or a screensaver, or sharing with your friends in an online photo album.

Before you start shooting, get out your camera and check the memory card to make sure you have capacity to store at least a hundred images. Put fresh batteries in the camera, especially if you are taking pictures indoors or if you don't have an AC converter for your camera. Decide where to pose your dog, and gather any foregrounds, backdrops or props you want to use so they are all ready to go. Assemble your dog's harness, leash and some dog treats to use as rewards.

Fourth, decide whether you'll take pictures of your Poodle inside or outside, and secure the location if you decide to shoot outside. Fifth, make sure all your backdrops and props and you dog's collar, harness and leash are ready and close at hand. Sixth, have an idea of the different poses that you want to capture in you canine portraits.

When you're trying to take great pictures of your Poodle, your hands are going to be full. An active, lively dog like the poodle will keep you busy, and need someone to help you do the grooming, staging, and other behind-the-scenes tasks. Ask a friend who gets along well with your dog to act as your assistant.

Look at a few Poodle pictures, and you'll notice right away that the best ones are taken at the dog's eye level. Don't hesitate to set a Toy Poodle up on a table or bed to raise its height so you're at eye level. Remember, safety first! Have your assistant monitor the situation so your dog doesn't fall off.

Props and accessories help enhance your dog's appeal in a picture. Props work especially well with poodles, to put the dog in scale so the viewer knows whether the animal is a toy poodle, a miniature poodle or a standard poodle. Take pictures from you dog's eye level. Sit or kneel to photograph a standard poodle, and move a toy dog up to a tabletop or countertop. Follow these suggestions, and you will soon be taking professional quality pictures of your Poodle.
