Shiba Inu Gains Attention For Ruining Every Group Photo

Taking group pictures is never easy. Like, never. We are not professional photographers, but even the pros take multiple pictures trying to guarantee the perfect shot.

We have taken many, many amateur photos of groups of friends and family, and every single time, there is that one person who, for whatever reason, seems to refuse to look at the camera and smile. 

If you have ever wondered why parents take so many candid pictures of their kids it’s because posed photos don’t turn out as well. A child’s natural smile is so much better than a posed, unnatural smile. If you’re a parent, you know what we’re talking about.

You would hope that when children grow up they would learn how to be a good sport and smile for the camera, but not everyone does this. You’re probably already thinking about that photo of you and your friends that was ruined when one of your friends decided to make a silly face.

Trying to get the perfect photo of a group of friends can be frustrating, but have you ever tried to photograph a group of pets? That can be even more difficult.

Yoko owns four Shiba Inu dogs, Kikko, Sasha, Momo, and Hina. Kikko, Sasha and Momo happily pose for their owner. They are surprisingly good at posing too. But, then there’s Hina.

To put it bluntly, Hina ruins all the group photos. In fact, this dog ruins the photos so consistently that it’s cute.

Instead of being frustrated by the photos and deleting them, Yoko decided to post the group photos on Instagram. Hina’s refusal to pose like all the other dogs has become pretty popular. We’ve found that this dog’s refusal to smile for the camera is actually making us smile.

In order to get the best possible images of your pets, Mark Rogers gave “Dog Time” the following advice:

“Most amateur photographers do best with warm, natural sunlight. To avoid washed-out pictures, shoot in the mornings or evenings, on slightly overcast days, or in the shade on a bright day.”

Rogers also recommends taking lots of casual pictures and letting your pet sniff the camera. We’re not sure if this advice would work equally well with that friend or family member who doesn’t play nicely during group photos.

Do you have a friend or family member who acts like Hina during photos?
