It’s Week 20 of professional pet photography blog circle Project 52 and our theme is “low angle.” For me a low angle in photographing pets means getting down on their level. I decided to do that with my own pets, which caused much consternation and confusion that mommy was on the floor. I did, however, manage to get images of each dog and the cat taken from their level.

First up is Diana, she decided to hang out under the chair in the corner…or as we call it “lurking.” The dogs would say she was up to no good plotting things. They probably aren’t too far off.

Shortly after that, she moved on and her space was taken up by Mr. Bojangles. Normally, there is a dog bed under this chair, so maybe the interest in this spot was generated due to the moving of the dog bed.

I really liked how the focus on Paco fell in this image, it’s on his far eye. This is pretty much how it would look to you when he is as close to you as he was to my lens. They were all kind of in my face at some point.

Finally, Stella was disturbed enough by me being on the floor that she got off her usual spot on her bed or, as we call it, her “sofa” (which is really just a ginormous dog bed from Costco.)

So, it seems, when you get down on the pet’s level it can cause some confusion…I could almost hear them asking what was wrong with me. LOL!

For more of the down low angle, head over to Jessica Wasik with Bark & Gold Photography, celebrating the joy and love between Pittsburgh pets and their people. Then head around the rest of the blog circle until you end up back here.
