Every person who has a dog knows how hard it can be to take a pic of your pup. But Mark Rogers, who is a pet photographer, said it’s possible. What we should do is by letting our dog get used to the camera. “The click and flash of a camera can rattle dogs at first,” Rogers told Dog Time. “Let your dog give the camera a good sniff, then start casually shooting the surroundings.”

The idea is to keep things natural and relaxed,” Rogers explained. “What not to do: grab a ton of treats, abruptly shove the camera in your dog’s face, and repeat, ‘Mommy’s gonna take your picture!’ at a high pitch.

The more shots you take, the better your chances of capturing something awesome.

Also, turn off the flash when you can. “Most amateur photographers do best with warm, natural sunlight. To avoid washed-out pictures, shoot in the mornings or evenings, on slightly overcast days, or in the shade on a bright day.”

If you stand over your dog and look down, every shot you take is going to look like everyone else’s,” Rogers added. Take a knee, sit, crouch, lie on your belly, do whatever you have to do to get eye-to-eye with your dog.

Pay attention to the background. Something simple, like a white sandy beach or green trees, make your dog stand out in the picture. And do not forget the colors; no black backgrounds for black dogs or brown backgrounds for brown dogs, and so on. Of course, these tips might not help if your doggo is consciously refusing to get their photo taken. But not every pup is like Hina!
