Get Down Top 10 June 2022

What if we told you there was one tiny little thing that you could do right now that will dramatically change your images forever. This thing that you can change is quick. It's easy. It doesn't require you to spend a single dollar and it will have an immediate impact on how your images look.

One of the most effective techniques that you can use when photographing dogs is to get down to their level.

We wanted to see images shot from a super low angle for this challenge. Here, in no particular order, are our top 10. Congratulations to the photographers!

We're definitely at a low enough angle to immerse us into this dog's playful world. The playful feel is enhanced by the use of a wide-angle lens too.

Cassie Latta-Johnson | Wet Nose Images

We love the playful nature of this shot and it illustrates clearly why getting down low is important. 

Jilian Turner | Gone To the Dogs Photography

There's a wonderful depth to this image thanks to the use of foreground and background blur. Beautiful composition and a great low angle.

Kim West | Lint Roller Productions

Lovely composition, expression and edit. Really low angle exaggerated by the foreground flowers.

Linda Jeremy | Good Dog Photography

Beautiful colour harmony and editing treatment. Fantastic low angle and composition.

Lindsay Baca | Sit Stay Pet Photography

Utterly adorable, excellent low angle and the orange bokeh really adds to the feeling of the image.

Mandy Houston | MH Pet Imagery

Gorgeous light, a very happy pup and a super low angle. Perfect for the Get Down challenge!

Micah Ritzhaupt | For My Lemon Photography

You couldn't get a lower angel than this! Along with a great expression, great point in the dog's stride and really lovely edit, this is deserving of it's top 10 place.

Navin Chandra | Beyond Human Photography

Wonderful angles, excellent composition, particularly the framing of the trees. Great low angle and fantastic editing treatment.

Paul Tadday | Paul Tadday Photography - Paws & Claws

There is such a unique quality to this shot in the way the city skyline is used and the editing treatment. Of course, it's also shot at a super low angle too!
