In dog photography, one factor that leads to either success of failure comes from whether or not your dog has been trained that looking directly at a person or object is an okay thing to do. Dogs that have been frequently photographed and are used to the camera as a non-threatening object will not object to looking directly into a lens.

Some dogs who know that a treat will follow the picture actually hold poses until the photograph has been taken. At least Izzy knows that more often than not, if the "wait" command is used, a treat will follow the sound(s) of the camera clicking.
Other dogs appear to be camera shy if not actually camera-phobic (see below):

|A peaceful greeting|
|See how they greet one another off lead!|
|No tension. Watch the body language.|
