Dog Photography Tips and a Shoot

It is a completely off topic post so bare with me. My border collie Surak got his first ever offer. He reviewed (positively) dog food. We also made his photoshoot and he was such a good boy! The photos were fantastic and as proud Dog Mom (even though I don't really like being called that way) I just have to share it with you. And as I love pet bloggers (hi, Britt, if you read this) I am not going to even have a dog blogger topic here.





And to at least pretend this post is not that bad, here are some tips on how we made pet photos.
1 Play with your dog before shooting. It is better if your pup is a tiny little bit tired.
2 Have a help of extra person and a toy. Second person holds the toy, it helps a ton to work with where your dog's looking. Calling your pup is not a great idea because it may result in moving around. Also tail might start to move and might end up blurry. You do not want that.
3 Pay attention to how your dog behaves. During the shooting Surak didn't feel like sitting, I didn't force him to, I let him lay. If your dog hates the place or pose you want your dog to have it might only lead to oddly looking furry face and spoiled photos.
4 Don't hesitate to take a brake. have fun, give couple of kisses and belly rubs, let your dog feel you are happy with what you are doing. 
5 Take million photos! You might want to so photo series (it's when your camera make 3-7 shots after one button push), it helps to avoid blurriness if you shoot with movement and help a lot with blinking.
Have a nice day,
Lyosha

  9. Well I have to say, Surak is a great model! haha, but seriously, I love these tips on getting a good photo shoot with your dog. I guess the better trained your dog is, the easier but it makes sense to tire him out before the shoot so he isnt too distracted or hyper. Maybe the same thing is good for kids too!

    1. surely training helps a lot, the more obedient your dog is the better but generally you don't essentially need that to make good photos.
      I think there is a lot in common with kids and dogs. however, you should never try a trick with a toy with kids, most likely it will lead to different reaction: running towards it or crying

  14. These are some great tips! Trying to get photos of our pets isn't always easy - in fact, some of my sponsored shoots have taken multiple tries on different days just to get the final pictures that I'm after lol! There are days that the dogs just aren't interested in being a model and you have to be able to roll with it. That being said, you got some GREAT pictures here! Allowing your pup to lay down really worked for you! (Thanks for the shoutout! lol)

    1. why not? surely it's harder to push your cat to do something but you can observe your cat and his or her behavior and adapt to take photos. I'd suggest to catch your cat a little sleepy, normally it helps

  28. I love these photos of your dog! They are simply adorable. Such great tips too on taking photos of a pet. I have to get pics quickly before my cat realizes I am taking them, because he somehow knows I want to take photos and turns into a turd about it. Lol. It's a great lesson in being stealthy with the camera.

Women's Success Awards

November 29ty there was a great awards ceremony in Moscow. We've been celebrating the Women's Success Awards by Women's Time magazine. Not only it is important to appreciate the work and achievements of people no matter of their sex but setting an additional pattern makes appreciation wider in general. I was honored to attend the awards and want to share my experience with you. RU: 29 Ноября в Москве прошла отличная церемония награждения. Мы отмечали Women's Success Awards журнала Women's Time. Мне кажется, что важно не только отмечать достижения и работу людей вне зависимости их пола, но несколько сузить выбор иногда, чтобы посмотреть на достижения более широко. Я была очень рада посетить эту церемонию и разделить мои впечатления с моими читателями. For the event I've chosen a long dress (it's awards after all) from my fellow blogger, heeled boots to keep my feet warm as it recently got even colder in Moscow and a funn

See you in glasses, Cowboy!

I am so excited to share one more cooperation with Glassesshop ! I was even more excited because now living in Mexico I do need more sun glasses than I used to have before. During our last and very fruitful collaboration I received three lovely pairs. Two of them are regular sunglasses which were immediately "shared" with my partner Max (he loves both pairs) and one of them is only for me. It's a great option for travels to save space if you ask me. Transition glasses where you can simply magnet the sunglasses part and take it off in a flash. Super handy! And... as I promised The outfit I wear with transforming glasses is a new item from Cuidado con el Perro x Cowboy Bebop. I am a huge of anime and watched it an insane number of times. I just had to have something from it. This little item is great for Cancun climate and reptile like me. I enjoy wearing it the evenings when it gets a little colder and no sun. I really enjoy having Faye on right and Spike on my left all
