GOOD VS BAD EXAMPLES OF PICTURES
TIPS ON PHOTOGRAPHING YOUR PET
These are illustrations on how to get the best photo portraits of your pets.
I highly recommend kneeling to your pets level.
Holding the camera/phone level and straight onto their face.
Then with your other hand (or an assistant) hold a treat or toy and move this to where you’d like them to look. I tend to move it slowly from left to right. Up and down to get photographs of every angle.
You also (probably) want to get them looking alert. Ears up and sparkly eyed! So if the toy has a squeak use that to get the expression you need.
Or if you’re using treats make a squeaky/kissing noise with your mouth - whatever you think will catch your dogs attention.
Taking photos from above distorts the perspective of the photograph, so your pet won’t be in proportion causing their ears to look over sized and their legs shorter than they actually are.
Though cute in a photograph, if you would like them painted this will not look true to the pet and will very likely look a little odd!
