Megan with Paws and Claws photography on how to handle your pet. To keep your pet in one place, give it a toy to play with, food to nibble on, I like to use this, these are training treats, their very small and plus your pet won't get full off of them. Or a familiar smell, like a blanket or a pillow. Now cats are natural climbers and leapers, if you place an attraction on a table, you can get three different shots. The attractions that I have here for example, this is a glove that works really well, you can put it on to tease them, the toys go in and out. We also have a fishing line or feathers work just as well, you know, just as well, to get their attention. If you place an attraction on a table, you can get three different shots, the crouch, the leap, and the landing. If you are shooting a group of pets, like puppies, kittens or bunnies, consider placing them in a basket, to keep them confined to one area. To get the attention of your pet, have someone stand directly behind you, call to it, whistle, squeak a toy, or clap. But you want to remember, this only will work once or twice. Now pets tend to response to our feelings, when you are upset, the pet can sense that, and that sometimes upsets them. So remember to relax, take enough time, and take lots of pictures. In a usual setting, it can take me up to hour to get the perfect shot. Usually the last few pictures that I take are the best. Also, know when to stop, both people and pets get tired and frustrated. When this happens, take a break and try again later.
