How to get a still image of an active pet

We at Missouri Lost & Found Paws want to share a tip that we have found helpful with our own pets.

Let’s face it, some pets 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.

Try using video for found pets who won’t sit still, or pets you see wandering the area. Using video, it is a little less intimidating to them. Use zoom to get a closer view of pets.

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.

Get ready to take a screenshot. Snap a screenshot.

Crop the screenshot.

Use the cropped photo for postings.

You are welcome.
