Using videos to learn pet photography

There are as many different ways to photograph a dog as there are photographers out there trying to do it. A resource that many people over look when they’re trying to learn photography is YouTube. There are literally thousands of instructional videos to help you –and they’re all free. As a side note, did you know that YouTube is the third largest search engine in the world? Yup. So next time you have a photography question that’s just driving you crazy — trying searching it on YouTube! The maker of this video has a very patient older dog, which you rarely find at the animal shelter, but his lighting is simple and inexpensive using clamp on floodlights from the hardware or home improvement store. Try it!

  1. What a coincidence! I just watched this last night! Great tips for newbies like me since they include multiple shots with varying amounts of light. I am contemplating some super cheap lights to use at the shelter where I volunteer for indoor pictures. The room we have there is windowless and that makes it tough to get a good picture.

    I’m watching your blog for another upcoming workshop! 🙂
