These tips are all about documenting pets:
We're talking documenting pets this week for #nndailytip For camera shy pets, a little patience goes a long way! If your pet hides at the sign of a foreign object, sometimes holding it still for a few moments is all your pet needs to realize it's not a threat. My hermit crabs hide every time I go to photograph them, but always pop back out again if I hold still!
This week's ##nndailytip posts are about documenting pets! Today's post is from @tinysparkslife: Take photos of your pets at random moments when they're beside you. Record how they look that day and how they look at you; when you're away from them that's how you usually remember them, not their posed or formal shots but their everyday presence.
This week's #nndailytip posts are all about documenting pets. Today's post is from @kelsterjean Capturing fun, interesting photos of your pets is hard sometimes! Look for opportunities to photograph your pets in their natural habitat, and in ways that show their characteristics or traits. Try getting down to their level, taking closer and far away photos, and be patient! I love to photograph our bunny Maria when she's taking a rest from running around, and laying all sprawled out with her legs behind her.
This week's #nndailytip is all about documenting pets. Try taking photos of pets near a sunny window (not in front of it) for great natural lighting indoors. This is especially helpful for me when photographing my dark grey cat Charcoal, because without natural light, it's hard to make out his facial features. I'll snap my fingers, talk to him, or make weird noises to get him to look at the camera. I have to act fast though: as soon as he notices I'm paying attention to him he comes to snuggle.
Today's #nndailytip is from @tinysparkslife! Even if you're short of time, a little note on a pet milestone included in your page is a great idea. It's nice to have remembrances of your pets' birthdays or 'gotcha days' or even a mini milestone like their first great hair cut! Trust me, this haircut was worth remembering, especially since her last 'hair cut' was a disastrous (almost) full body shave that left her looking like an old moustached dragon!
#nndailytip is kicking up a notch with lots of tips today! This one is from @kelsterjean Pets are such a big part of our every day life, so definitely include them in your Project Life or layouts about everyday life! If you have lots of pet photos (like I do!) but nothing specific to say, trying using everyday phrase stamps or stickers to capture what you feel about them, like I did here.
We're taking pets for #nndailytip this week! Sometimes a little bit of blurring helps tell your story, so don't think of it as ruining your photo! This pic shows off how my little frog eats–he stuffs food into his mouth really quickly with his hands. I always imagine him saying NomNomNomNom and it's wildly entertaining to me.
Documenting pets tip from @kelsterjean for #nndailytip Whether you have your own pets or not, everyone has a special furry in their life that means a lot to them! Our dog Cocoa has lots of furry friends that live around us that she loves, so it was important to document them as well. Try creating a list of their names and who they belong to (if there's a lot!) or write small journaling about why they mean so much to you.
Photo bursts on your phone's camera or continuous / burst shooting on a DSLR are helpful for getting a good shot when you have a squirmy or exploring pet. Hermes checked out the bookshelf today and I had to get a shot of him against the blue. This is the good one out of a burst of 30 or so. #nndailytip
Last pet documenting #nndailytip from @kelsterjean Sometimes there are tough times with pets, including when they're sick, or even losing them. This can be so hard to cope with, but scrapbooking about it can help the healing process. When our bunny Murphy passed away, I created a Project Life layout about his last day with us. If it's fresh and painful to tell the whole story, creating a short list or using quotes/lyrics as your journaling can really help capture what you want to say without diving too deep into emotions.
