GATES & WOODEN FENCES
LIGHT STONE WALLS
Light stone walls are a personal favourite of mine! The creamy tones give us a nice clean backdrop which makes any dog POP.
Each location - whether it be your the beach, a country park or the local woods - will offer us a variety of different natural props and backdrops to play with.
Here are a number of things to be looking out for..
Wooden fences create some interesting leading lines to draw your attention in to the main focus of the photo (which of course is your dog!)
MEADOWS & CROP FIELDS
It goes without saying, large open crop fields, or meadows filled with beautiful, colorful flowers in the middle of summer look spectacular in photos!
If you are able to get permission form a local farmer to walk through one on the day of your shoot - we are going to have some fun!
LANES, BUSHES & TREES
Bushes and trees can be used to help frame an image, while pathways and long tracks create focal points to help guide the eye.
Logs create a nice natural prop to sit on or by, allowing you to get down a level with your four-legged friends!
Large puddles, streams, ponds, or the sea can all create some beautiful and artistic reflections (or a whole lot of splashing)!
Particularly if you have a nervous dog, make sure to pick a location they are familiar with and relaxed in. If they are anxious around people, or other dogs, finding somewhere quiet and secluded is key.
