Animal photography is quite challenging because the subject matter is always moving and animals don’t follow instructions! However, when you do get some good shots, it’s definitely worth the struggle. Continue reading to see what I managed to snap with my camera, these three are the most adorable dogs and cats I’ve met in Perth so far this year :)
The first pet I met was Bella who was a miniature jack russell with a keen ear for food. She came scrambling from the opposite corner of the house when she heard any movement in the kitchen. When she saw we had edible things, she gazed upward with those shiny puppy dog eyes and begged for a morsel of food. How can you say no to this tiny face?
Second I met Genie, who is a maltese x mini poodle. She was a peaceful dog that day, sitting quietly while people talked and ate around her, but she stayed watchful. Usually, I’ve found small dogs to be noisy and overexcitable but Genie was very well behaved. I wonder if she was tired out earlier in the day before I came around?
Lastly (and this one is my favourite because I absolutely ADORE cats) here is Sylvia. She rubbed up against my hand and legs with her head, marking me as hers. She had the softest fur and was fairly friendly; she sat still for a moment and let me take these photos before wandering off, a little intimidated by the huge lens.
Can’t wait to see if I meet any more cute pets during the rest of the year!
Do you think your cats or dogs are cuter? Send me a photo, I love seeing photos of cute pets, cats especially ;)
P.S: Photos of Genie and Sylvia were taken with a secondhand Canon 35 f/1.4L lens I have recently acquired. I love it so much, it has taken the place of my 24L living on my camera body.
