How to Photograph a Super Happy Dog

Wanna know how to capture a wide-eyed and wide-mouthed photo of your dog? It’s easy! First, set up your camera on a tripod and point it at your dog. Then, simply throw it some tasty treats with one hand while snapping photographs with the other. There are all kind of expressions you might capture using this technique, but this one by Andrea Sillem is pretty priceless.

Also, be sure to check out Carli Davidson’s photos of dog’s shaking off water if you haven’t already.
