As a fervent photographer of my dog, Skitters, I was interested to stumble across the article How to take amazing photos of your dog the other day.  It covers both recommended equipment, and a selection of shots to try.  Some of these I've got examples of amongst my 305 Skitters photos.  Others I have yet to try.  For my own reference I thought I'd list the recommended positions, and post example Skitters photos where I have them.  All of them are useful and good techniques for getting a more unusual shot of your 4 legged friend.

Position yourself low


Fill the frame by getting closer


Use a wide aperture


Take lots of shots


Forget standard camera-holding techniques

I need to work on this one!
