My mom's baby, Sophie, always the fashonista...

I'm tired of the "get on their level" animal advice and am trying to find new angles that portray their personalities just as well as being on the floor... #642856

This may or may not be helpful, but I found that keeping the shot about the animal, and using the eyes as a guide to the animals personalities helps. I found while observing an animals behavior that their eyes tell much about the personilty.... wheter they're happy or sad... etc. I'm not sure if it helps, but at least I tried #4200347

Exactly - I couldn't agree with you more. Thanks, Tom. #4200409

I think Sophie's showing some definite personality here! Love her little tongue hanging out. Great capture Sipho... #4200422

Many thanks, Brooke. #4200520

I think this level works perfect to capture the motion in the dress. And you definitely captured her personality. I love this image. #4201018

I think the point of view works good here. Love that Sophie's face is in focus but there is movement of her body/tail.

She looks like she is dancing in her dress. Love it! #4201158

Thank you both, Suzanne and Susan. Big hugs to Jasper! #4203383

Love it!! However, Toffee, (who is also female) is currently wearing her South African rugby jersey with a big 2 on it, and looks decidedly butch - I think she might rip that dress off Sophie if she had a chance!! Its just too cold here to go fashionista - common sense prevails!
Loving the doggy pix - great angles :) #4421115

Wonderful, Andrew! The pov works great here. #4422153
