Photographing pets is not always the easiest of tasks but it is usually great fun, even when it’s muddy and wet. The pictures below were taken locally on Ashton Park in Preston and as you can see the dog had clearly been enjoying himself.
Pets can be a challenging subject to capture. They move fast and are unpredictable, so a supply of treats and the position of the dog’s owner are key things to remember. As with humans, I also like to make sure there are catchlights in the eyes, which can also be a bit of a challenge when the dog’s eyes are shielded by hair. You have to be patient and for every photo I kept there were plenty of rejects!
All these images were taken with the Fuji X-T1 and 50-140mm lens.
