Weekly Photography Challenge – Pet Photography

By Jamie Grant

Last couple of weeks have been all about nature and the outdoors. Another part of nature is the animal kingdom. So this week’s photography challenge is to get out and photograph some pets. If you don’t have any borrow your friend’s or neighbours.

Photographing animals presents a unique set of challenges. You have a moving, possibly unwilling subject to deal with – as well as potentially tricky exposure to try and get detail in fur or feathers. Just the right light is essential, as is a delicate hand at working with your furry (or feathered, or scaled) friends.

Let’s see how creative you can get. Here’s a few ideas to get you started:
