We all have that one friend in our group who is constantly in their own world.
They will always go left while the rest of the gang goes right! We love those friends for sure but they always know how to stick out and are constantly absent-minded especially when trying to take that perfect group photo. Maybe they didn’t get the memo in time, but whenever you scroll through multiple takes of the same photo, there they are doing their own thing!
Clearly, it’s not just humans who face this problem, this beautiful Shiba Inu named Hina has the same idea! When this doggo is hanging out with his friends, Kikko, Sasha, and Momo, she always ends up ruining their perfectly rehearsed group photos! Hina loves them so can’t stay away but she’s also always a little bit confused! Maybe she’s a little camera shy?
Whatever Hina’s reasons are, she has gone viral for these photos and we can see why! Scroll through these pictures and you’ll understand the group dynamics here! Make sure to share this with that one friend who’s exactly like Hina!
1. When you give the camera your widest grin
2. Angry at the cameraman?
He just wanted a shot of that beautiful tail…
3. Too excited to be with the buddies
Mark Rogers, the pet photographer, shares some tips on taking the perfect pictures of your pooch! He says that dogs take some time getting used to the camera and the flash. He says: “The click and flash of a camera can rattle dogs at first,” “Let your dog give the camera a good sniff, then start casually shooting the surroundings.”
Start taking pictures of the dogs only when they are comfortable around the camera and start doing their usual doggy stuff! If you are using a film camera, get your pup comfortable with the process before you actually load the film.
4. Giving the camera your best winky face
5. Way too early for this
Can’t function without that morning coffee!
6. When the wind gets you
Rogers went further by saying: “The idea is to keep things natural and relaxed,” “What not to do: grab a ton of treats, abruptly shove the camera in your dog’s face, and repeat, ‘Mommy’s gonna take your picture!’ at a high pitch.” Make sure you take loads of pictures! The more pictures you take, the more options you’ll have to choose from, and capture that perfect shot.
Rogers also advises turning the camera flash off if possible. He explains: “Most amateur photographers do best with warm, natural sunlight. To avoid washed-out pictures, shoot in the mornings or evenings, on slightly overcast days, or in the shade on a bright day.”
7. The real diva of the photo
8. The sky’s so blue…
9. When you just want to play Fetch
So done with all these pictures!
10. Got into a tiff with the homies
11. Tongue competition
He further explains how to make this process easier: “If you stand over your dog and look down, every shot you take is going to look like everyone else’s,” To make your pup feel comfortable, get on eye-level with them rather than looming over them with a camera, whatever strange positions that takes!
It’s also important to pick a good background. Don’t be too ambitious, and choose something that is relatively neutral and will allow your dog to be the main subject in the final photo. A reminder though: if your dog just isn’t cooperating, you can’t do much! But not every pupper is as unique as Hina, so you might have more luck with your own furry friend!
12. Convincing your friends to stop being lazy and play a game!
