If you're anything like me, you'll have had many images where the dog is looking perfect, but you just can't get a good edit because the owner was standing in the way.

In this video, I'm going to talk about how empty frames without the dog can save your images, some good habits to get into when you're out on a shoot and I'll show you exactly how easy removing people is if you've shot a blank frame. It's going to save you so much time and so many images, I promise!
