Movers & Shakers

Let’s face it, animals are movers and shakers. They have places to go, people to see. Naturally when we try to snap a photo, they often want to keep things moving.  If you have found a pet and are having a difficult time to capture a still photo, here are some tips from Missouri Lost & Found Paws.

Try using video for found animals who won’t sit still, or animals you see wandering the area. Video is a less intimidating to animals. Zoom in/off while capturing video.

  • After you have captured the video, play the video on your phone.
  • Look for the moment where the visibility is clear and focused.
  • Play the video again.
  • Have your fingers poised to take a screenshot on your phone. Snap the screenshot.
  • Crop the screenshot as needed.
  • Use the cropped photo for postings!

These tips also work well to snap a photo of your own pet.  It always good to have a current photo accessible should an emergency arise.
