The right angle makes all the difference in the world when you’re looking to take photos of dogs for portraits. I’m at Greyhounds Unlimited adoption group taking photos of some of the retired greyhounds looking for homes to demonstrate how I get good shots of dogs for paintings! I’m not a photographer so I’m not talking about cameras or settings here. I’m showing you how I get the dog to look where I want and what angle I take photos from.

If you’re in North Texas and looking for a new studio assistant, check out to see the available hounds!

These photos were shot using a Canon 6D with an EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM Lens (affiliate link)
