Sugar, my Blue Heeler Mix. Looking for some constructive criticism or advice on these. She is difficult to photograph because she doesn't stay still very long.

Not much you can do to slow her down, my healer is the same way. Best thing to do is take lots of shots and sort out the keepers! Would suggest getting lower to take the pictures. All of them are from a looking down perspective, and I don't think that allows the dog to really shine. So much of a dog's personality is read in their eyes, so make sure to keep the focus on them sharp (like the last shot) and strive to keep them from getting to dark (like the first). Just my 2 cents.

Thank you, The last one she is sitting. Eyes nice and bright but she's subdued so yes, I see your point.

One thing that can help with animal portraits is have someone else work with the animal while you take pictures.

She wears the bell when she is going to be off leash. I know where she is AND it avoids the problem of her trying to chase a deer.
