The Camwhore Canine!

No stylish interior is complete without framed family photos. Dedicated dog people can never have too many dog photographs, but getting a good shot of your one of a kind dog at his or her cutest is no east task.

Our beloved dogs, understandably, can't comprehend why we'd waster time frantically waving our arms trying to get their attention while wielding a contraption that emits a temporarily blinding light. Little wonder professional pet photographers command such steep fees: Getting the "money shot" is hard work. But with a little patience, and a reliable digital camera even nonprofessionals can achieve excellent results. Once they get used to modelling, dogs are natural-born posers who enjoy making love to the camera.

Plus, they really know how to tilt their heads just so, drawing attention to their best angle-not to mention their gloriously asymmetrical ears.
How to shot like a PRO

1. Work outdoors, or in indoor spaces that have ample natural light. Flash can frighten some dogs, and it causes the dreaded red-eye effect

2. Team up with a friend or family member and have that person stand behind you to make an attention getting noise with squeaky toy or keys. if your subject is small and camera shy, disguise your photo assistant by draping a large sheet or length of attractive fabric over him or her, and have your assistant cradle the little dog ( so it looks like the dog is cuddled up in a fabric.

3. Use tasty treats as motivation for mutts to assume elegant, photogenic poses.

4. If eye contact is what you are after, make a high pitched noise. (girls are good at this)

5. Remember, black dogs disappear against dark backgrounds. For maximum contrast, seek out light-colored backdrops (if you are shooting outdoors) or drape white cloth over your dog's bed.

6. Don't expect your dog to model patiently for long periods, call a time out after 20 minutes, and if you're not satisfied with the images you've gotten, take a break and try again later.
