PHOTOGRAPHY 

A photograph’s success should not be determined by how good your camera is. If you want to take photos of your cattle and you only have your smartphone, then that should be fine. Anything that has the capability of capturing an image, will be okay.

The composition is one of the main aspects of taking a photograph. Where you stand, the angle of the camera and the background of the image should all be considered.

To take a shot of your pedigree bull, for example, the angle of the shot will greatly affect how your livestock will appear on camera. Take the photo from a low angle, on the same level as your animal. Fill most of the frame with the bull and ensure it is looking forward, with its head up and ears forward. Ensure that the sun is behind you and the animal is well balanced.
