Taking pictures is easy. You simply have to click on the metal buttons of your cameras and you already come up with the photos you like. Although taking photos is a very simple task, capturing the nicest ones is another story. You may encounter several usual problems while taking your puppies photos. Here are some examples and the corresponding solutions to it. Not having enough lit in your puppies photos may lead to underexpose films. This could also happen if you are standing very far from the subject or if your shutter speed is too fast.To prevent underexposed photos, you can move near the window for more light to come in. You can also bring a lamp for darker areas so your puppies can be illuminated by the light. You also have to move closer to the subject or adjust the shutter speed of your digital cameras. A lot of cameras today have exposure settings. You may change the lighting system of your cameras through this way.
When a photo is taken with a flash, the ray of light directly goes into the eyes which cause a red mark to appear on the pupils. This normally happens in puppies because they have bigger eyes than humans. So to avoid this problem, you may turn off the camera’s flash if you really do not need it or you can capture the dog’s photos sideways so they can avoid looking at the lens of the camera.Standing far away from your subject or taking pictures in broad daylight are also other ways to eliminate this problem. Nevertheless if you took the pictures already and you want them to be cleared of the red eye mark, you may certainly do so by editing the photos in a computer editing software.

Blurry photos are very common problems encountered in taking puppy pictures. Because the dog moves around too much, you can expect the pictures to go blurry. Commanding your dog to stay still may not be realistic since they wouldn’t always obey your commands. So to avoid this problem, you can use the anti-blur feature in your digital cameras or you can also use a tripod or a brace to fix the problem.

Using the action shooting mode in your cameras also lessens the problem greatly. Readying your camera halfway can also avoid blurry puppy photos. Use the shutter lag and press it halfway until you are sure of the photo that you’re going to capture.
