A PET’S OWNER KNOWS IT: EACH ANGLE OF YOUR FRIEND IS WORTH A CLIC. BUT IT ISN´T EASY TO GET A GOOD PICTURE – MOSTLY BECAUSE FURRY PEOPLE DON’ T LIKE TO STAND STILL. SO, WHAT IS THE SECRET

TO YOUR PET’S GOOD PICTURE?  WE ASKED IT TO REPUTED PHOTOGRAPHERS IN RIO, FAMOUS TO CLIC CELEBRITIES TO NEWSPAPERS AND MAGAZINES –  BECAUSE OUR PUPPIES ARE WORTH OUR BEST TIPS! PHOTOGRAPHERS SAY THAT TECHNIC IS IMPORTANT BUT A RELATIONSHIP WITH PET CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. IT MEANS THAT THE MORE PET FEEL NEAR AND LOVED BY THEIR OWNERS, EASIER IT WILL BE TO GET THE BEST PHOTOS.

RODRIGO LOPES (WWW.RODRIGOLOPES.COM), OWNER OF FOUR BEAUTIFUL CATS, RECCOMENDS TO PLAY WITH THEM BEFORE THE PHOTOGRAPHIC SESSION. ‘THIS WAY, THEY WILL GET LESS SUSPICIOUS, MORE RELAXED AND PAY ATTENTION TO ONWNER,” HE SAYS. HE AND HIS WIFE ISABELA LIRA HAVE FOUR CATS RESCUED AT INSTITUTIONS: TECO, 12 YEARS OLD, LOLÔ PAÇOCA, TEN YEARS, BATMAN AND ZIG, BOTH FIVE YEARS OLD. THEY ARE CONSIDERED MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY. “THEY BRING LIFE TO THE HOUSE AND HUMOUR TO OUR ROUTINE,” SAYS RODRIGO. BATMAN (PHOTO) IS NOTED EVEN AT AT THE STUDIO WHERE MANY GLOBO TV ACTORS GO AND HE IS CHEERFULLY CONSIDERED AS ‘THE FAMILY ARTIST’ BECAUSE, BESIDES BEING BEAUTIFUL, HE LOVES POSING. “I’M USED TO MAKE GOOD PICS OF THEM ALL WHEN THEY AWAKE FROM A NAP. THEY ALWAYS WAKE WITH GOOD EXPRESSIONS TO PHOTOS, AS WHEN YAWNING. IT LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE TALKING OR EVEN SHOUTING.”

PHOTOGRAPHER VIRNA SANTOLIA (WWW.VIRNASANTOLIA.COM.BR) IS “MOTHER” OF AURORA, A ELEVEN YEARS OLD WHITE POODLE THAT EVEN SERVED AS A MODEL AT ADVERTISING CAMPAIGNS. THE PROTOGRAPHER SAYS THAT PACIENCE IS THE BEST INGREDIENT FOR A GOOD PHOTO. ‘THE BEST IS TO WAIT UNTIL THEY MOVE EXPONTANEOUSLY AND CALMLY SO YOU CAN GET THE BEST OF EACH MOVEMENT.” TO AURORA’S PICTURES WITH SPECIAL COSTUMES ( AS THE RABBIT COSTUME SHE WEARS AT THE PHOTO) VIRNA USES TO PUT THE DOG IN A ELEVATED PLACE. ‘SHE STAYS SEATED AND LOOKS RIGHT TO THE LENS.”  VIRNA ALSO SAYS THAT PET MUST BE IN A PLACE WITH GOOD NATURAL LIGHT SO THE PICS ARE NOT DARK. IF YOU NEED A FLASH, KEEP DISTANCE SO THE PET EYES’ WON’T BE RED. SOME PETS ARE SCARED WITH LIGHT SHOT AND IT CAN DISTURB THE REMAINING SESSION.

PHOTOGRAPHER MARCELO CORREA (@MARCELO CORREA) SUGGESTS DOGS’ EVERYDAY PHOTOS AND THEIR PRIVATE UNIVERSE. “THE BEST PHOTOS ARE OF THE DOG WHEN HIS OWNER COMES HOME, OR HOW HE SLEEPS, PLAY ALONE OR WITH SOMEONE”, HE SAYS.  HE ALSO RECCOMENDS HOUSE CORNERS TO CLIC FURRY PEOPLE: THESE ARE PLACES WERE THEY FEEL SECURE. “I LIKE TO PIC THEM IN POSITIONS THEY PREFER LIKE A AFFECTION MOMENT, A LAZY HOUR AND ALSO A SHAKING MOMENT. DIFFERERENT SITUATIONS THAT SURPRISE US WHEN CHOOSING THE BEST PICTURES TO THAT NICE PHOTO ALBUM  ARE THOSE THAT SHOW THE PET PERSONALITY. “THE FUN AT PET SHOOTING IS THE JOY IN CHOOSING HUMOUR VARIATIONS  DAYS AND YEARS ALONG. THIS LAST TIP DEPENDS ALSO ON IMAGE TREATMENT. TO THOSE WHO WANT A PROFESSIONAL TOUCH, RODRIGO LOPES SUGGESTS AN PHOTO EDITOR LIKE SNAPSEED, THAT CAN BE AT YOUR CAMERA OR CELL PHONE. “ADJUST THE CAMERA AND THE FRAMEWORK, ARRANGE COLOUR AND BRIGHTNESS. THESE FINISHING ADDS A LOT TO YOUR PIECTURE FINAL RESULT AND YOUR PET WILL BE PRETTIER THAN EVER.”
