How to photograph Affenhuahua

This is the ultimate guide on how to photograph dogs and Affenhuahua. As always, when taking pictures of animals there are things to think about and below you will also find both camera and lens recommendations.

Try to really capture the personality of your Affenhuahua. Perhaps he or she has a unique expression, or does something that is very significant for a Affenhuahua? When it comes to cameras and lenses you can pretty much go with any kind of camera gear, but with a normal zoom lens you will never be wrong. If you want to capture the dog in action, for example running, this can demand a bit of your camera and lens in order for the autofocus to maintain the sharp and crisp details, in the eyes etc. When photographing a Affenhuahua that is running, it is easier to do that from the side than if the Affenhuahua is running towards you. The autofocus has an easier time following an object that is moving sideways than straight towards you.

Another tip while photographing dogs in general is to get down on their level, on ground level that is. If you are standing up and shooting your pictures downwards you might end up with a lot of lawn or floor in the picture. If you can get a bit dirty, try to lay down on your lawn and capture your Affenhuahua with some sky, garden or trees in the background. That makes a better picture.
