Shiba Inu dogs are a very popular breed of dog on the Internet. It's not hard to see why though because Shiba Inu dogs are ridiculously adorable and have an awful lot of facial expressions, even for dogs!
That said, not all Shiba Inu dogs are photogenic? Think about it, it's relatively safe to say we all have 'that one friend.' You know the one - the pal who just can't make a regular face in a group photo?
It's a problem we've most likely all experienced at some point, and, as it turns out, this is also a problem experienced by our dog friends. Yep, you're about to meet a dog who just can't help but sabotage every photo her owner attempts to take of her and her dog siblings.
Hina is an adorable Shiba Inu with quite the cheeky streak. Whenever her owner, Yoko, tries to take a nice pic of her and her other dogs, Kikko, Sasha, and Momo, Hina will, without fail, ruin the photo with her silly faces and tomfoolery.
"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," Roger continued.
"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."
Pet photographer, Mark Rogers, has some tips for pet owners with similar problems to Yoko.
"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," Rogers says.
Rogers also suggests getting down on your dog's level.
"If you stand over your dog and look down, every shot you take is going to look like everyone else's."
