here's a shot of a mini prom.

too bad i had to take the shot with the animal in cage. I think its a challenge to snap hyper active animals. They are not as willing as humans to pose for u.:(

Its a pretty ok attempt given the confines in which you have to shoot. I'd get down lower to even level and open up the apreture more to blur out the metal cage bars. Alternatively you could use the bars as part of the composition use yse them to frame or lead the viewer to the dog.

I do agree that taking animals is hard though as its not easy to direct them (espcially cats!)

BTW its Pom(short for pomeranian) not prom

You are only allowed 1 picture in this sub-forum per week please read the guidelines. Anyways yes I like this one more but a few more things to watch out.

I did mention about the cage bars and having them stick out behind the head is a distraction. Also the face seems under exposed and flat. I cans ee some catchlights (form ambient) in the eyes but the lighting is not enough to illuminate the subject IMHO.

Try not to cut off ears and to leave a little more room above the head (this is one major difference of animal vs human portraits ) as most pets have ears that stick out above thier heads. I tend to be guilty of this alot.

doesn't mean u have to cage to shoot, understand your pet, then know their style and take them unknowingly. if they like you, they'll listen to your instructions to get the poses you want.

anyway, your pic does not work... cos u did a bad delete job on the background. newspaper distracting, the cage as well, face underexpose, toy distracting. so on & so forth.
