Pets come in all shapes and sizes. While this may be a cliché, it's also true, and it kept running through my mind as I edited this assignment. If you love animals, it really doesn’t matter what they look like or how unusual they are. Once they've stolen your heart, there's not much you can do … except buy them special treats and an extra lush blanket to curl up in after their bubble bath.
This was a tough story to edit because there were so many pictures of cute animals doing adorable things. And it’s hard not to like cute. But the photos that really stood out to me were the ones that showed the connection between person and pet.
There were many shots that I wished had been better photos in the technical sense—better lighting, exposure, and focus, or maybe a different angle and composition. When you have all-day access to the subject, you should use it to your advantage and keep shooting. Try to find that unique situation that will really show the best side of your pet.
