Goats In Pictures

Updated on March 11, 2015

One of the first thing I learned when trying to photograph my goats is don't take to long when trying to get a shot or you will get an extreme closeup. They are very curious and want to know what you are doing. So I take lots of pictures and then pick the few good ones from each session.

Ready For My Closeup

Kids (baby goats) make great photo subjects. Besides being adorable you never know what they are going to do.

Animal Photography

The key to getting great pictures of your animal subject is patience. Sometimes I will spend 2 hours outside with my camera and not get any good shots. I will lay on the ground and just click away trying to get the "perfect" shot. I have taken literally hundreds of shots to get a handful of ones I keep. Just enjoy your subjects and have fun.

Motherly Love

There is no better subject then a mother with her baby. They will give you some of the most beautiful and touching photographs.

Goats In Motion

Goats love to run, jump and play. Be quick and attentive and you can get some awesome shots of goats doing what goats do best.

Ready, Set, Go!

Have Fun With Your Subjects

When I go outside with my camera I am always hoping to take a lot of great pictures but am always prepared for the chance that I won't take any.

Sometimes I go outside and end up hanging my camera on the fence and just playing with the goats and other times I come inside with over 100 pictures.

Just have fun when you go out there and be happy whether you get any pictures or not.

      An awesome hub on a topic that I haven't seen covered anywhere before this.

      My brother and I have been thinking about keeping sheep or goats, along with chickens (layers) on a hobby farm for quite sometimes now. I think we may be there in 2 years time.
