Photographing Your Dog with a Lensbaby

  • 1 min read

Who doesn't love a cute dog photo? We've got quite a collection of cute Lensbaby dog photos, to make you smile and send you into your weekend with ideas for your own photos. We challenge you to take out your Lensbaby this weekend and try to catch a sweet moment of your dog or someone else's dog. Here are a few tips to remember when photographing dogs that move quickly.

  1. Choose your aperture carefully. We recommend choosing f/5.6 or f/8 so you have a nice large spot of focus but still have a good amount of blur on the edges. If shooting with Spark, not to worry-you are already set at f/5.6.
  2. Make sure your shutter speed does not fall below 1/100th of a second, as your subject will be moving too fast and you probably won't be able to freeze the action at a slower shutter speed.
  3. Increase your ISO if you've made all these settings and your photos are coming out too dark.
  4. Secret weapon: treats and squeaky toys!JulianMancha_Fisheye Kelly_Trindle_Fisheye RhondaVenezia_Sweet35 KellyTrindle_Sweet35 KeriFriedman_Sweet35 Joye_Ardyn_Durham_Fisheye HeatherStewart_Fisheye Spark
