Photographing Dogs on Leash
Good Mojo Manor was kind enough to allow me to do some Fall Session photos on their property recently. They were held outside and luckily there was good weather.
One challenge of this location is that it is on a busy road in Milford. That means for safety reasons, the dogs needed to be on leash. Even if the dogs have a great sit/stay, I'm not going to take any chances.
During the shoot, the goal is to keep the leash behind the dog and out of the way as much as possible. This can be a little complicated if you have no assistant and the dog mom/dad has to hold the leash out of the way; not because they aren't coordinated enough to do it, but the dog then tends to want to watch mom or dad, who are now either to the side or behind them. The key is to get them positioned and then use sounds to get the dog to look in my direction which is when you get that wonderful eye contact and the occasional head tilt.
After the session, I can then use photoshop to remove the leash.
Here are some examples of photos from the sessions showing the shot of them on leash and then will leashes removed.
