How to Take Excellent Cat, Horse, or Dog Photos?

Since we are painting your pet from your photograph, the most critical criterion for a high-quality painting is a good photograph. Let the animal be natural. Sometimes a surprising picture works best. Look at its environment, what is in front or behind your pet. Taking photographs of animals takes time and persistence. It utilize its natural surroundings where it feels at ease. It must have open eyes and look into the camera from the side. Showing their eyes is vital.

The Best Photo for the Best Animal Portrait

Do whatever it takes not to be high over your pet when taking photographs. To capture a decent photo of a feline or canine, you should crouch down to their eye level or place them on a table if that is less demanding. Take a picture of your puppy or cat looking to one side and always showing both eyes. If you want more than one animal and cannot fit them all in one photo, attempt to get them in the same position and send us separate snaps. Strive for even lighting, no harsh lighting or deep shadows. If you are outside in bright sunlight, use your flash, it helps reduce shadows. Take a few snapshots and find the most attractive one to e-mail to us. A beautiful animal portrait starts with your photo.

Take photos where your cat or dog fills the whole frame. Dark animals are more challenging to photograph since it is harder for the camera to focus with so much dark area. It may be advisable to use flash on dark animals but keep it away from the eyes. We cannot change the stance. If your pet looks straight on, we can not make it look left, but we can change the arrangement or the background. Also, if you do not know which is the most appropriate picture, e-mail us the photographs, and a pet portrait artist will look them over and suggest the best one.
