First time trying to stack at 2yr old

Decided to try and get her to stack and she did better than I thought actually I notice her back feet are spread a little too far apart, but she wouldn't stand for any more pictures so I'll work on that. Any advice for next time?

Her rear should be set behind her, rather than spreading it horizontally. Also, while she's very pretty, it's hard to critique her because the angle of the photo is off.

You are right to be on the same level as the dog, but you want to shoot from the center of the dog, as opposed to these photos, which are shot from the point of her shoulder.

I cannot critique - I am no pro, actually I am in the process of looking for my first GSD puppy myself but I had to comment that she is a beautiful girl

The first photo is probably the best. The angle, though, makes her head and front look huge and the rear look tiny.

Thank you for the comments! And as for the photos looking out of proportion, that is also due to my most annoying camera that ruins most of my pictures lol. The lens has a proportion issue which makes things on one side of the picture look unnaturally huge and others look smaller on the opposite side. Obviously not the best for stacking lol, but its the only camera I have for now.
I'll try to get some pics once I find a better camera
