* Let the camera do the work for you by using automatic features. Flash suppression prevents pet “red-eye”.

* Shoot your pet sitting still and in action. When capturing your pet in action, utilize your camera’s blur reducing mode. If you don’t have that option, catch your pet at the end of their run or the height of their jump.

* If your pet won’t sit still, shoot in burst mode.
