Some tips for photographing American bulldogs include taking photographs in bright light, using a fast shutter speed when the dog is moving, and adjusting the autofocus setting to "continuous" to prevent blurry photos.

Bring the camera to the dog's eye level by sitting or kneeling, and keep behind the camera when taking photographs outside. Take photographs in a familiar environment to ensure the animal is playful and happy, and use a polarizing filter when taking photos of white dogs to help prevent overexposure.

When taking photos of a moving dog, take several consecutive photos without pausing. Place a solid-colored drop cloth behind the dog to create an editable image, or take the photo in front of a blank wall.

Play with the dog for several minutes, allow the dog to relax, and call its name with the camera ready to capture the dog smiling. Editing the photos is recommended. To edit the photo, adjust the sharpness, and use the dodge and burn tools to edit the dog's eyes if desired.
