Studies have shown that the eye is drawn to faces in photographs. It’s just a plain fact. So we try to get faces in our pictures whenever we can. Even if the subject isn’t a person.
Animals can be difficult; my experience with pet of the week has shown me that. The larger and more exotic the animal it seems the harder it gets. I was assigned to shoot a farm field trip and among the subjects were a llama and Texas long horn steer. Both did their best to avoid the camera but I was eventually able to snap a couple of quick portraits.
